Job Description:

We are:

The Accenture Products and Platforms (APP) group in Accenture Technology. APP operates a portfolio of product-mindset business units inside Accenture - each with a shared mission to codify industry and functional knowledge into valuable and differentiated software assets for sale to Accenture clients. APP teams overlay Pragmatic Institute methodology frameworks, and Agile methodologies to create value and deliver excellence. APP solutions accelerate time-to-value, ensure customer satisfaction, and drive productive, long-term client engagements. APP offers unique and rewarding opportunities and software career paths within Accenture for those interested in building world-class re-usable software that addresses the needs of the most sophisticated Global 2000 clients. In this position, you will be working within Accenture Products and Platforms (APP) for INTIENT - Accenture's premier and most high-profile Industry cloud solution for Life Sciences and beyond. Accenture is committed to delivering on the promise of technology and human ingenuity, and INTIENT is the realization of this with capabilities that support improved efficiencies in drug development, and better experiences and outcomes for patients - improving the lives of millions of people. As an Product Manager you are a central player in this narrative and brand promise.

You are:

A professional who develops and implements a product strategy, product roadmap and release plans. You conduct market research to develop a market-wide understanding of buyer/user problems and corresponding requirements. You provide thought leadership and sales support, differentiating our competitive position while ensuring ongoing alignment with the global market, the industry and foundation programs. You work with stakeholders to leverage tech and industry partnerships to provide leading edge software products. You enjoy partnering with Software Engineers and Data Scientists to bring contemporary cloud-based solutions to clients. You have experience in the Retail industry.

The work:

  • Drive market-relevant enhancements into the Intient software offering: identify and prioritize key enhancements which should be considered when deciding the features to be built for each release. Focus will be on functionality, enhancements to the User Experience and leverage of AI/ML models. Output will be Value Propositions related to these key enhancements, along with detailed requirements to be provided to functional leads.

  • Assist Sales Teams in Software Sales Engagements: support Sales Teams as they engage with potential customers in the sale of that software. Primary activity includes reviewing RFPs, providing key insight as to what exists in the software and to what degree it is flexible to meet a requirement. Where functionality is not available, assist in responses that provide some indication as to when such functionality might become available.

  • Manage Requirements backlog and help document epics & user stories, and other requirements with ongoing management of their relative prioritized ranking in the backlog.

  • Assist with Acceptance testing of features where applicable.

  • Deep-Dives with Clients/User Personas regarding our software solution and the top functionality topics that are being considered over the next 3+ releases.

  • Work with internal and external ecosystem players including Cloud providers, and internal Accenture experts in Cloud, Analytics and Life Sciences, to ensure solution meets the needs of the market and differentiates Accenture.

For now, all Accenture business travel, international and domestic, is currently restricted to client-essential sales/delivery activity only.

Please note: The safety and well-being of our people continues to be the top priority, and our decisions around travel are informed by government COVID-19 response directives, recommendations from leading health authorities and guidance from a number of infectious disease experts.
