Principal/Chief Product Owner
Product Strategy & Commercialization
Erick Rios has always been a problem solver. His 11th-grade aptitude test highlighted his mix of strong managerial, investigative, and social skills, along with a talent for “mechanical reasoning,” but noted that what he loved most was “finding solutions to problems.”
Whether it was leading his design team for their MIT senior project or over the past six years as the Director of Product at Big Bang, Erick has used those same skills to bring people together, solve problems, and create successful product strategies.
Under Erick’s leadership, Big Bang has worked with Fortune 500 companies, including Pitney Bowes, Cuisinart, and Plantronics, as well as exciting start-ups and growing companies such as Phonic, Guided Therapeutics, Dentek, and Werner Ladder.
He received a BS in Mechanical Engineering from MIT and an MS in Mechanical Engineering (focused on manufacturing) from Georgia Tech and developed his product design experience at Ford Motor Company, IDEO Product Development, and the MIT Center for Innovation in Product Development.
Since joining Big Bang 16 years ago, Erick has helped design hundreds of products and brought over fifty successfully to market. Still, he believes his greatest strength is his ability to bring together a team of diverse expertise and personalities to tackle the kind of complex challenges that don’t have easy answers. Because what Erick still loves best is an opportunity to figure out the problem and find a solution.
