I am the CPO and VP of R&D at a small start up.
I am looking to recruit what I would call a "Sparing Partner". That is someone I can brainstorm with all day, discuss and discect the market, identify opportunities, talk to customers and map out moon-shots.
I am having a hard time figuring out what title(s) of roles I should be posting. I feel like it should be something like Head of Innovation? Strategy? Product Development?
We have a product manager, new business team, engineering, sales, product marketing.
I think the closest would be a product manager, but often I see this as someone that can run with an idea, outline the requirements and work with engineering to deliver it. I am looking for someone that's more creative, entrepreneurial, innovative.
Would love any advice and or pointers to roles/descriptions.
Thanks in advance,
