Crossover TPMs get to work across a portfolio of products and cover a range of industries and technologies, making this an amazing learning opportunity. TPMs are encouraged to learn and apply the latest cloud computing patterns (think about the entire AWS catalog, not just EC2 & S3). They also receive tons of training and development, starting with our one-month CTO Bootcamp program.
Make clear, simple, and technically sound design decisions
Simplify designs that others have made complicated
Uphold high standards on fundamental data structures, algorithms, and architectural best practices
Coach a team, primarily by providing high-quality feedback on their work
A university degree including the study of data structures, algorithms, and computing fundamentals.
At least 2 years of experience writing production code in either Java or C# for a commercial software company.
At least 5 years of experience making important architecture and design decisions; such as data domain modeling, application of design patterns, and design using third-party components.
Some experience designing for cloud computing paradigms (such as Amazon Web Services, Azure, or Google Cloud Platform).
The ability to simplify complex ideas and communicate then with clear, logical thinking.
Nice to Have
Experience creating simple but important messages for sales and marketing teams
Experience rebuilding/redesigning existing products on top of entirely new cloud services (for example all the AWS services beyond EC2 and S3).
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
We believe in continuous growth and strive for constant improvement. As part of our TPM family, you will be exposed to a multitude of new technologies, products and industries on a daily basis, and our comprehensive suite of playbooks will equip you with the foundation to develop and enhance your existing expertise.
We also provide a unique CTO Remote Camp for all new SVPs of TPM. This full-time, fully-paid training program covers all of the unique aspects within our approach to TPM, including:
SME engagement and how to elicit the important information
How to uncover CIV (Challenging, Important or Valuable) Problems in a particular domain/industry
How to define Core Functions to address CIV problems and ensure optimal product-market fit
How to make the Important Technical Decisions to ensure that:
Core architecture decisions are not left to chance
Core functionality will be delivered effectively
Architecture and development teams are not micro-managed by imposing unnecessary constraints (low-level, unimportant decisions)
Throughout your training, you will get daily feedback to accelerate learning and growth far beyond typical classrooms or training programs.
Our curriculum includes a number of bite-sized training videos where we explain how we design great software. Here’s an example where we show you how to make and validate Important Technical Decisions.
