At Corteva Agriscience, you will help us grow what's next. No matter your role, you will be part of a team that is building the future of agriculture - leading breakthroughs in the innovation and application of science and technology that will better the lives of people all over the world and fuel the progress of humankind.
The Product Development team is a part of the Farming Solutions & Digital group that designs and builds customer-facing digital solutions that maximize value for farmers and advisors. Our work helps fuel and expose Corteva's scientific innovation.
As the Head of Product Management for Corteva's Farming Solutions & Digital Product Development (FS&D PD) group, you will lead a team of product managers as they build software for farmers and their trusted advisors that exposes and fuels Corteva's R&D digital innovations. You will be a critical part of the FS&D PD leadership trio along with our Head of Engineering and Head of Design, reporting into the FS&D PD Leader. In addition to leading, coaching & developing the Product Management team, you will work with other senior leaders to help define and evolve the Product Development's team operating model, develop and communicate strategy and priorities, and represent Product Management with critical stakeholders throughout the FS&D and R&D org.

  • Embrace and expect the PM team to use market, customer, and usage data to make product decisions. Good product decisions are usually the result of pairing of quantitative and qualitative insights as a result of data
