  • Guide prioritization, planning, and execution of workstreams and ensure alignment across functions
  • Make data-driven decisions through rapid iteration, experiments in market, and learning through feedback from real customers
  • Communicate highly complex concepts and plans to a diverse set of internal and external stakeholders, and evangelize the product strategy to executive leadership

  • Experience with Agile, Lean, and Design Thinking principles in the product development process
  • Experience building service-based product ecosystems e.g. Consumer Electronics, Internet of Things (IoT), Mobile Applications, Transportation as a Service, or Autonomous Vehicles
  • Comfort navigating ambiguity, establishing goals and crafting a plan in a fast-paced, rapidly changing environment
  • Strong strategic thinking and problem-solving skills; able to use data to translate ambiguous problems into elegant solutions
  • Experience partnering with cross-functional teams to build complex products
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills; able to engage effectively at all levels from executive leadership to customers, across geographies and cultures


What you’ll receive in return:

As part of the Ford family, you’ll enjoy excellent compensation and a comprehensive benefits package that includes generous PTO, retirement, savings and stock investment plans, incentive compensation and much more. You’ll also experience exciting opportunities for professional and personal growth and recognition.

At Ford, the health and safety of our employees is our top priority. Vaccination has been proven to play a critical role in combatting COVID-19. As a result, Ford has made the decision to require U.S. salaried employees to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, unless employees require an accommodation for religious or medical reasons. Being fully vaccinated means that an individual is at least two weeks past their final dose of an authorized COVID-19 vaccine regimen. As a condition of employment, newly hired employees will be required to provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination or an approved medical or religious exemption.
