Senior Product Owner, Hardware
Mayfield Heights, Ohio
Mercedes is a dedicated, passionate technical leader within her team and a fast riser within the Rockwell Automation hardware design and development organization. In just five years of professional experience, she assumed the role of Product Owner within one of the most complex product design programs in the company, now leading a team of 14 engineers with levels of experience from less than one year to more than 25. Her role is to define the technical roadmap for the next two years and remove barriers for her peers; she does so with consistent positivity and a professional focus.
Fun fact: Mercedes recently — and randomly — took up quilting and has fallen in love with the meditative process.
