Entry Level

Introduction
Ready to re-imagine the product management role?  At IBM, as an Offering Manager, you are responsible for the full lifecycle of an offering: from validating need to determining the business model and defining the solution requirements. Going beyond the traditional focus of timetables and budgets, you use your keen insights into what customers want in their own business plan - and work across disciplines to build the best solutions to a problem. If being the CEO of your offering excites you, consider an offering management career at IBM.

Your Role and Responsibilities
IBM is transforming product management and has created a new discipline called IBM Offering Management. IBM Offering Management transforms how we take offerings to market by first focusing on the needs of the client. The Associate Offering Manager (AOM) Program is the cornerstone of this transformation. The AOM Program recruits and develops early-career, technically-minded entrepreneurs to join offering teams who are solving complex problems in a changing world. We THINK big.

We look for emerging leaders who are entrepreneurial, adaptable, analytical, creative problem solvers, persuasive, empathetic and tenacious. We also look for those who have been exposed to, and are well versed in, technology concepts.

Our AOMs operate in a demanding role at the center of multidisciplinary teams which include design, engineering, sales, marketing, finance and legal. Our clients rank among the world's largest, most influential companies and governments, and our offering teams serve their needs under constantly changing priorities. We are passionate about using technology to solve these problems

When considering applicants for this role, we look for education and background in areas such as innovation, entrepreneurship, engineering, computer science, market / user research, design thinking, technology commercialization, business and go-to-market practices.

We hire from both Bachelors and Masters levels programs candidates who exhibit the aptitude and experience relevant to product management. There are two levels of AOMs based on education, experience and skills. By applying to this job posting, you will be considered for the level that fits you best.
