Former Hardware Storage Technical Program Manager at Facebook
about 3 years ago
The TPM role is very unique in a sense that it merges technical skills with program management and leadership skills. A Hardware storage TPM handles delivery of projects specific to infrastructure and those concerned with hardware products in data centers. It might also involve working on research projects in storage and networking. A TPM manages a product from inception of an idea to its delivery to the client, works with cross-functional teams, manages and leads meetings and makes sure that the company goals are met within the given timeframe. It is a very people oriented job too.
