Current Open Positions

Research & Design Product Manager

The R&D Product Manager oversees all phases of product design associated with one or more grant-funded research projects. They work cooperatively with the Principal Investigator(s), design, and marketing teams to develop a viable product, from discovery to launch and beyond. They are the product expert who owns the functionality and user experience, and they champion the vision at each step of the creation process. The Product Manager will uncover human-centered insights, and translate these insights into meaningful opportunities for design innovation. They assess the market and client needs; define a solution and roadmap; monitor its development and delivery; and communicate with internal and external stakeholders to ensure execution based on project objectives.

We are hiring a product manager for a mobile health application that uses Problem Solving Therapy (PST) and is adapted to be culturally relevant for Chinese Americans and Korean Americans. If successful, future development would extend the app to other groups.

The project team will: (1) design and develop a minimum viable product using an iterative, user-centered approach; (2) complete content and app development; and (3) conduct a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of the intervention. When the study concludes, this product will be the first evidence-based PST mobile app designed for Asian Americans.
