Biography

Martin Dare

I collaborate with customers to understand their needs, and align internal stakeholders to work towards business objectives and priorities. I synthesize information, identify sources and dependencies, and formulate actionable solutions to create business value.

I have 10+ years of experience in delivering technology products for start-ups and corporations, and 5 years of experience in working with Agile teams. My skill set includes:

▪ Technology product management and marketing
• New product development and market entry strategy
• Cross-functional management across geographies
• SaaS, application platform, web service integration solutions
• Agile software development practices (Scrum Alliance CSP, CSPO)

I was introduced to the Scrum Alliance and Agile practices in 2007 while working as a Product Manager at Autodesk working on the development of a search/information retrieval framework to enable cross-platform integration of Construction & Real Estate Industry Solutions SaaS products (Buzzsaw, Constructware). I continued to expand my Agile knowledge and experience as a Product Owner at Skire, where I guided the development of Real Estate SaaS solutions on a new enterprise web application platform, and a public, closed-domain, knowledge base, social media plattform targeting real estate and construction (formerly Jotter.com).

I am currently Product Owner at Redwood Systems prioritizing feature development for an open framework API as well as guiding third-party development of mobile applications (Android, iOS, web), and integration with hardware (AMX, Crestron,TZ) and software (Google Apps, Microsoft) using the Redwood API to deliver building sensor network data, system performance reporting, and LED lighting control solutions.
