Product management is a role that combines business development, technology and user experience. In a nutshell, a Product Manager’s main goal is to maximise value from a startup's product or service.
Really, a Product Manager’s role is to create products which users love and which can contribute to building a scalable business.
In most cases, Product Managers are in charge of managing the development and maintenance of web and mobile apps. This means working with developers, designers and customers to create a product and experience your users love. You'll need to be technically-minded and able to work independently and with teams to consistently imagine and deliver great products.
"Product Managers should establish a shared vision, set realistic goals, and describe the benefits your product should deliver"
"As a Product Manager, it is your job to build and ship a product that your customers love"
