Do you want to make an impact on the most important product in a corporation or industry? AutoCAD is a product used by Architects, Engineers and Designers to make the world around us.

Our Product Managers have indominable curiosity and passion for scaling multi-platform innovation and driving successful outcomes for our customers across industries. We act as the critical connection between customer needs, business strategy, solution design, software development, and go-to-market execution. Our insight fuels creation of compelling strategies, elegant solutions, and inspired results for our customers.

While developing high level vision is an important part of our role, we also like to get our hands dirty. On a given day you may deliver a pitch to a senior executive, extract new meaning from analytics data, address a customer issue, or work through a challenging design question with your team. You’ll work with designers, engineers, and researchers to conduct user research, validate solutions and launch software products. We thrive on finding simple solutions to the toughest problems and take pride in getting the most important things done for our customers and our business.

We’re looking to add a creative, business-minded Senior Product Manager to our inclusive team that advocates and celebrates diversity. You would act as a key leader in refining and accelerating our product strategy to meet evolving customer needs. We’re especially interested in those with a strong passion for helping our large and varied customer base evolve to achieve greater outcomes with data and technology. The ideal candidate is an outcome-focused, curious, collaborative change agent with an unflinching entrepreneurial spirit. If this sounds like you, we’d love to chat.
