This TPM would directly lead a team of engineers and designers to help improve the core video sharing experience, but also coordinate with adjacent teams to ensure roadmap alignment and consistent execution. In this role, the TPM will be the primary person defining how the core video experience should work. This includes the video upload, video playback and video quality. Key responsibilities include defining metrics for the core video experience, coordinating engineering within the video team, and helping the team coordinate across all of Facebook.
Product TPMs go through Engineering and Data Bootcamp and are expected to possess an overarching understanding of the whole system architecture (e.g. in the case of video sharing it means understanding the core engineering systems and the data pipelines). By being embedded in an Engineering team, a product TPM commits to learning the team's technology and to making it transparent to other teams.
