Product Manager

Full Time

Computercraft is looking for a dynamic Product Manager to join a team that helps develop and manage cutting-edge digital products at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), part of the National Library of Medicine (NLM) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). These digital products are the preeminent, open-source tools and technologies used worldwide to contribute to scientific research and discovery, facilitate the work of clinicians, and improve human health. Working on NCBI products, these Product Managers can help to accelerate the development of cures for diseases like COVID-19. This role can be fully remote (in the continental U.S.).

As Product Manager, you will work at the center of decision-makers, users, and a cross-functional team of scientists and programmers, driving the creation of prominent technology products. You will identify user personas, define and discover their needs, and work closely with technical teams to develop products and features to meet them. Specifically, the position will support a set of related tools, SciENcv, MyBibliography, and MyNCBI. SciENcv is used by researchers to assemble the professional information needed for participation in federally funded research, MyBibliography is used to save citations and manage peer-reviewed article compliance with the NIH Public Access Policy, and MyNCBI retains user information and database preferences providing customized services for many NCBI databases (e.g., searches, display formats, filtering options).

NCBI has one of the top 400 most visited websites worldwide, and its wide range of applications serve more users and more data than nearly any other U.S. Government agency. NCBI provides free access to petabytes of biomedical and genomic information, and scientists all over the world use its products.
