About Wyze Labs

Wyze Labs is a team of innovators and tech geeks obsessed with making smart home products accessible to everyone. Our products are intuitive and easy to use and are available at prices that won’t break the bank. We believe customers shouldn’t have to compromise – beautifully designed smart home products should enrich people’s lives and be something everyone can afford.

Job Description

 
Wyze’s mission is to make great technology accessible to everyone because we believe that when great technology is accessible, curiosity thrives! Founded just over three years ago, Wyze started out as a smart camera company, has since branched out into the entire smart home ecosystem, and recently raised $15M in its latest funding round.
 
Our offices are based in Kirkland, WA, an outstanding city 10.3 miles east of downtown Seattle and nestled around beautiful Lake Washington! We also have offices in Beijing and Shenzhen, China!
 
At the announcement of the pandemic reaching US borders, Wyze employees quickly adapted to WFH setups, and we, as well as any new hires, will continue to thrive from the safety of our homes until we can make a safe return to work in our new, COVID-conscious office space.
This role is based full-time in Kirkland, Washington, and we are happy to help new folks relocate to this wonderful, tech-savvy city!
 
Why You Will Make an Impact:
 
As a Software PM in Device Experience, you will own the common user experiences across multiple Wyze product lines, such as the cameras used in the Wyze Cam, Wyze Pan, and Wyze Doorbell, or the lights used in our Wyze Bulb and lighting product line, to create a delightful and consistent experience across all Wyze product lines, shorten individual product integration time, and improve product quality by providing platform-level implementation. During the development phase, you will lead your engineering team to ensure on-time project completion with high quality, as well as integrate new capabilities, such as new artificial intelligence or services, into Wyze products post-release.

    • Lead your team to deliver high-quality implementation on time, including accurate schedule estimates, on-time delivery, and low bug count.
    • Drive team-level process improvements to push up efficiency.

You Already Have These Qualifications and Love What You Do:

    • BA/BS in CS, engineering or related majors.

    • Excellent communication, interpersonal and negotiation skills
    • Good knowledge with SDLC and project management methodologies (e.g., agile/scrum, PMP)
    • Ability to prioritize and make important decisions under pressure.
    • Strong analytical and data analysis skills.

And Even Better if the Following Applies to You:

    • Former “0-to-1” delivery experience for software products (not prototypes)
    • Former experience in-app at the platform level (horizontal support vs. vertical design)
    • Former experience with IoT and/or smart home products.
    • Be an active and passionate participant in Smart Home products.
