Pegasystems, Inc. Product Manager in Cambridge, Massachusetts

Product Manager

Job Category: Product Management

Location: US - Massachusetts - Cambridge


Meet Our Team:

Customer service isn’t easy. As consumers continue to gravitate towards automated self-service options for finding answers to questions, the findability of task specific knowledge is key. Finding ‘the right answer’ needs to be effortless. On the flipside, as the easier questions are self-served, the harder questions coming to the contact center are taking more time for Customer Service Reps (CSRs) to research, address and answer. Findability is key there too. Search is just one tool in the CSRs utility belt. A better experience might be to surface knowledge as appropriate without requiring a search in the first place!

That’s a challenging set of expectations to meet. That’s where you come in.

The team that you will be joining is focused on solving those complex and often competing demands, and Pega is recognized as a market leader in this space. You will be the catalyst and focal point guiding a talented engineering team building differentiated products enabling Pega customers in their efforts to do more on self-service channels, while also empowering Contact Centers with pertinent knowledge to solve the thorniest of customer needs.

In a short window of time, you will be working with a range of technologies that span all elements of customer engagement; weaving AI adaptive and predictive decisioning, natural language understanding, robotic desktop and process automation and messaging apps in order to provide compelling knowledge-driven self and assisted service experiences across multiple channels of engagement.

Picture Yourself at Pega:

Pega is changing the way the world builds software. In this role, you’ll help us define and deliver the next generation of Pega’s Knowledge product, delivering the right answers to service questions from end-customers, customer service reps and other stakeholders, by delivering tools to knowledge workers to anticipate, package and personalize and finally deliver content to those audiences.

• Review and adopt technologies from Pega’s platform that help you accelerate your roadmap.

• You’ll interact and influence key decision makers in the business to buy into your vision.

• Manage the priorities of one or more on-shore or off-shore engineering teams to implement your roadmap.

• You’ll collaborate with other parts of the business (documentation, training, services, solution consulting, other product managers) to build a strong business ecosystem around your product.

Who You Are:

You are a Product Manager who is passionate about the vital role knowledge plays in addressing customer needs directly, through self-service or chatbots interactions, or indirectly through a contact center delivered service engagement with a customer, has a critical eye for detail, and is obsessed about driving ‘consumer grade’ experiences – regardless of the persona you are building for.
