What do our product managers do?
A product manager at OGP is a tech entrepreneur for the public good. We identify areas where tech could have a big impact, build prototypes to find product-market fit, and get the right stakeholders on board. We use their knowledge of user needs, technical possibilities and design goals to deliver strong product. We dream big, developing far-reaching visions for their product space, and relentlessly execute until they get there.
You will work on meaningful projects that solve important problems in society, from transportation, to education, to healthcare. The public sector is full of opportunities where even the simplest software can have a big impact on people’s lives. Rather than boosting the top line, we're here to improve how we live as a society starting with what we can offer in the Singapore government.
