About the role

We are looking for a Product Manager who can provide product vision for how we leverage technology to improve business processes and productivity, by creating a roadmap, and bring their product to life. This role will gain a strong, deep understanding of the companys technology, interact with other Product Managers and development teams to lead the strategy for their product. Successful Product Managers in this role are able to understand business requirements, translate them into functional and non-functional user stories, and quantify the value/impact of new features for prioritization. Then, working with the necessary departments, implement the latest technology all while monitoring progress to meet the clients needs.

This is exciting because you will:

  • Take a customer-first approach to owning the roadmap and ensuring successful product launches across web and mobile

  • Ensure successful product launches by facilitating communication and priorities across stakeholders, product, development, and UX
  • Own the entire lifecycle of product development, from requirements gathering to user research
  • Balance business, customer, and technical needs for prioritization - understand that sometimes tech debt is just as important as customer feedback for business goals as a whole
  • Identify any gaps in functionality or user experience proactively
  • Use data, both quantitative and qualitative, to drive product decisions and to track product progress
  • Monitor the competitive landscape for new ideas and features

What you bring to the table:

  • 3-5 years of experience managing product at a tech company with strong aptitude and understanding of how to break processes down into technical objects to solve problems.
  • Excellent communication skills to solve complex problems and produce high-quality results
  • Ability to work in a fast-paced, startup environment
  • Experience with developing and following through on metrics and goals
  • Having experience in a B2B2C environment is a plus
  • Expertly walk the tight balance between both detail-oriented and big-picture thinking - keeping the future and road map always in mind when working on smaller tasks
  • Technical background preferred; retail operations experience a plus

Geraldi Prenata
UX Intern

Last Friday, I completed my 13-week summer internship with Takeoff Technologies as a UX intern. I really enjoy working in such a warm, friendly, and collaborative environment. I learned about creating user personas, performing user research, testing, and interview for our fulfillment & supply chain apps. I learned how to conduct an effective competitive analysis and analogous research to gain insights on current trends of competitors and eGrocery market. I also learned how to analyze user behavior and engagement using different analytical tools, and implement the findings to further improve our apps usability and features. Last but not least, I would like to thank my manager Becky Carpenter and Laura Cody from the UX team for teaching me the principles of Lean UX, product design, and collaboration with other departments.
