Product Manager

Join our team | Published: December 22, 2021

We are looking for a Product Manager

Do you want to help us design the future of our technology and make sure that our products are effectively used for many more patients in hospitals around the world?

As a product manager at MRIguidance, a UMC Utrecht spin-off company, you will be responsible for the product vision and roadmap as well as organizing, prioritizing and refining the product backlog to steer the development of our product portfolio into the right direction.

What you tell at birthdays about your job

“The company I work for prevents cancer in patients that need to undergo a bone scan. Nowadays, if someone needs a bone scan, radiologists use an x-ray based CT scan which exposes the patient to harmful radiation. The BoneMRI technique we developed is a radiation-free alternative that provides both bone and soft tissue information using only one machine and one exam. This reduces patients’ burden, and saves time and money for hospitals. My job is to design the future of this technology to make sure that our products are effectively used for many more patients in hospitals around the world.”

What you actually will be doing

For MRIguidance product development is really a core process. AI-enable algorithm development is combined with cloud application development to deliver BoneMRIs to the clinical setting. Your task will be to scope new features and together the development teams plan the delivery of the new features in product releases for our customers. Based on incoming data coordinated by the clinical team, outcomes from experiments from the algorithm team, feedback from our customers and prospects you will work in close collaboration with the CTO to determine the product roadmap, plan and adjust releases, where necessary.
