Opportunity Awaits at Altus Group!

The opportunity

Continuously innovating to meet the needs of our global clients proactively, we are building and implementing a unified platform to facilitate access to all of the data, and functionality needed to enable our services (Valuation and Advisory, Cost and Project Management, Commercial Property Tax, and Software & Analytics). To support this initiative, we have a brand new opportunity for a Principal Product Manager to be the voice of our tax services and tax customers.

As the Principal Product Manager, you will lead the team and drive the tax-focused capabilities of our new platform. Working predominantly with internal clients but with external clients as well, you will help to shape the solution and deliverables. Your focus in this role will be to drive the strategy and adoption of our product. This is a chance to take a deep dive into product capabilities and roadmap, business strategy, market trends, as well as our go-to-market and growth plan.

Who you are

You are strategic, visionary, creative, and thought process driven; a business-focused Product Manager obsessed with defining and refining your product’s value proposition and growing its market share. A dedicated problem-solver, you can leverage big data, agile principles, and human insights to re-imagine the way people interact with technology solutions, creating experiences that simplify and enhance access to products and services.

You may be a Product Manager with experience overseeing the build and deployment of a solution, working in increments to bring about a digital transformation. Or you may be a consulting product manager at a big four, overseeing an internal technology transformation that streamlines and improves services. Either way, you want to spearhead a new product strategy at an organization that is a leader in their space with global clients.

What’s in it for you? 

A blank slate. You want  to influence the product roadmap and shape our new functionalities, aligning industry needs with business objectives. Our Tax services, accessed by clients in Canada, the UK, and the USA, bring in the majority of our revenue. This high-visibility, high-impact opportunity to accelerate the technology transformation will drive better customer engagement and satisfaction.

Technology. Across the organization, we use cutting-edge technologies to build industry-leading solutions. You will be working to bring a new initiative to market, leveraging a unified platform to provide better tax insights through machine learning, big data analytics, and industry insights.

Unparalleled exposure. You want to step into a high-profile role with executive-level exposure at a rapidly scaling global industry leader. You will spearhead a product team working alongside architecture, development, quality assurance, and devops team members who are at the top of their game, solving problems that have never been looked at before. You will have the freedom to lead the deliverables from the ground up, from planning to launch. This is an opportunity to make your mark and genuinely accomplish something exciting as we focus on building a new platform.

Growth and career development. Altus fosters a culture of professional development and promotion from within. With retention rates double the tech industry average and dozens of promotions within and across teams, this is a place to truly expand your skills and grow your exposure. As we move from building to scaling, you will have a chance to increase your exposure and make an impact working on increasingly complex or large-scale products or move across to other areas of the business.

Our new Principal Product Manager, Tax will:

  • Leverage your expertise. You will provide thought leadership and insights into general industry trends and market behaviors. You will create reports communicating insights on market and industry trends and needs, including competitive product capabilities and developments. You will present findings of extensive and in-depth analysis on both Altus products and competitors. You will draw on experience and knowledge to see the big picture and develop creative strategies to make the vision a reality.

  • The passion for bringing people and technology together. You are a master translator who can convey business and technical needs to any level of audience. Ideally, you have experience working with internal clients. You are the conduit of communication and hub of information. You strive for balance across business value, client need, end-user desire, market expectation, and user experience.
  • The ownership. You thrive in a busy environment, assigning tasks, following up on deliverables, and getting your hands dirty too. Whatever it takes, you get it done. You have a way of speaking that engages your audience and instills confidence and credibility. You are comfortable presenting concepts and data to C-level executives. You are invested in satisfying the needs of your clients – and you work hard to do it well, on spec and on time.
  • The  leadership presence. Your commitment and focus inspire those around you to do better. You know how to build, grow and coach a team. You can influence work in a multi-functional team environment across different locations  with rapidly changing priorities under tight deadlines.
