They are not customer-facing and have a greater emphasis on technical and architectural considerations.
The role of a Platform Manager encompasses being the primary administrator of the software, orchestrating its setup, and overseeing ongoing maintenance. They are tasked with establishing the initial parameters for the website and managing all constituent data.
For Platform Product Managers, the primary goal is to deliver outcomes that contribute to business scalability and achievement of goals. Effective management with different teams is crucial for success, and collaboration, communication, and recognition of other teams play a key role in their responsibilities.
