Due to the current hype around startups, hiring a product manager is crucial for project success. Every freshly minted project needs a product manager to join. It's often even more important than finding a good engineering team.
However, the alarming shortage applies not only to software engineers. Finding a suitable candidate for your product management could be way more difficult. According to Glassdoor
, a product manager is currently in the top-3 jobs in the US, with almost 44% more open vacancies than Java developers.
At the same time, whether you are a small startup or a big company
launching a new product, it's not always beneficial to hire an in-house specialist with a large salary. Outsourcing product management is a much more cost-efficient option.
