Product Manager - Data - GemFire

You have a vision for Big and Fast Data that goes beyond the buzzwords. You understand the potential for the connection between real-time data management system, microservices, and applications. You approach data problems from a human-centric understanding, knowing that behind every data problem there is a person and a use case.
While you see the grand vision of high performance databases at scale, you are able to layout the individual stepping stones to get there. You constantly are linking customer pain points to individual user stories that convey the what, not the how.
You take an analytical and iterative approach to building software. You are constantly moving a product forward and skeptical of your decisions, building in feedback loops to validate your thinking. You are not a 10,000ft product manager. You relish the opportunity to work in close collaboration with engineers and designers to collaboratively build software.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
