Product Manager – Cognitive Digital Technologies

The Product Manager would envision, design, develop, and deliver cognitive digital products across the EWF sector.  The role will:

define the AI-based product portfolio based on the internal stakeholders’ requirements

define the commercial market appropriate AI product portfolio
