Technical Product Manager
Description

  

When Essentia first built the eSpeed Technology Platform, it was an internal resource designed to help team members do their jobs smarter and faster — eliminating tedious tasks and manual processes so that they could focus on work that truly matters. But when their Telecom, Cable, and Critical Infrastructure customers discovered this game-changing innovation, it quickly became clear that eSpeed was destined to be a customer-facing product. 

Yes, eSpeed has come a long way in just a few years, evolving into a robust Enterprise SaaS Solution designed to expedite field engineering and elevate productivity across enterprise-scale network deployments. It’s now capturing the attention of executives, C-Suites, and Board Members from a who’s who of the Fortune 100 infrastructure companies

Because of this transformation, Essentia is now looking for the right-fit person to help expand the platform’s reach while meeting a growing number of customer use cases. This addition to their Innovation Team will have ample support: bright team members who thrive on collaboration, a highly entrepreneurial environment, and everything you’d expect from a Certified Great Place Work.
