At Star, we connect strategy, insights, design, and engineering into a seamless workflow devised to support our clients every step of the way—no matter how long or complex their journey. We anchor everything we do in clear and compelling endgames, which in turn enable our multidisciplinary teams to create superior solutions and impressive commercial returns for our clients.
Star is truly global. That is why we are the first major consulting company that does not have headquarters. Instead, we have many front doors, spanning Silicon Valley, Tokyo, London, Munich, Copenhagen, Kyiv, Wroclaw, Ho Chi Minh City, and other vibrant design, technology, and creative nuclei of the world. Our spirited and growing 750+ strong Star Crew takes great pride in working side by side with their trailblazing counterparts at some of the world’s most disruptive “unicorn” startups and iconic global brands like Lufthansa, Dolby Laboratories, BMW, Panasonic, Walmart, and Zeiss.
Our mission is to make every great person, every great idea, and every great company shine. That’s why we’re called Star.
Our client is a worldwide leader in automotive infotainment and advanced connected car solutions. One of the client’s products is a connected vehicle platform intended to communicate with OEMs, fleets, and vehicle owners by providing them with relevant services, content, and analytics information. The goal of the project is to help the client develop the server-side of the platform by implementing core services and integrations with IoT and partner systems.
As our Product Manager, you will be a part of the community that builds innovative solutions for end users and works with the latest technologies and frameworks. We’ve been working with a number of companies for years, from startups to huge corporations and everything in between. We are looking for an exceptionally self-motivated problem solver and dedicated team player.

Product Champion. You are passionate about building products that customers love. New domains do not slow you down, rather you dive into them with a healthy “challenge accepted” attitude.
Facilitator. You easily capture business and product requirements for complex products, where user experience, business processes, hardware constraints and software integrations unite. Your exceptional soft skills complemented with advanced English and communication techniques eliminate all barriers with international stakeholders and SMEs.
Consultant. An ability to explain technical complexity, challenges and opportunities to stakeholders with different backgrounds is very important. You are sharp-eyed for logical gaps and unpolished design but know how to come up with relevant and optimal business solutions.
Entrepreneur. You are commercially minded and have a strong sense of use cases that lead to commercial success. That allows you to find a “golden middle” between long-term vision and immediate business value, which is crucial for product development and business transformation.
