At Fleetio, we believe that building remarkable software requires great product management. As a Product Manager at Fleetio, it’s your job to move the product forward in search of happy and productive customers. This is a demanding but rewarding role that requires an abundance of curiosity, skill, and leadership.
Fleetio is a modern software platform that helps thousands of organizations worldwide manage a fleet. Transportation technology is a hot market, and we’re leading the charge, with raving fans and new customers signing up daily.
You’ll own key parts of the software development process: researching the details of how something should work, defining and prioritizing user stories, talking to customers, and working with product designers and engineers to build remarkable solutions. This specific role will be part of a cross-functional team responsible for the strategy, roadmap, and delivery of product-led growth initiatives across our web and mobile platform.
Product Management is a fairly technical role at Fleetio. While you won’t be coding, we expect PMs to have a fundamental understanding of how web applications and many of the underlying technologies work. You should be comfortable with data - knowing how to instrument systems to collect data and build queries to analyze it.
What you'll be doing
- Talk to customers and know the market, the product line, and the competition extremely well. You’ll learn to finish our customers’ sentences, which means talking to many of them to understand the root of a problem — and all variations of it.
- Make strategic decisions. You will be expected to build and execute a product roadmap that achieves a strategic vision. The Product Manager is the decision-maker, the person who can take a variety of inputs and skillfully decide what actions must take place immediately, next, and never.
- Research and spec out how things should work. Explain the obvious. Engineering shouldn’t have to ask a million questions when they start working on a feature.
- Organize feedback, bugs, and ideas into a development backlog. You’ll use tools like Whimsical or Figma to prototype creative solutions and work with designers and developers to refine and implement them.
- Communicate internally and externally. You will help write documentation, deliver updates to other Fleetio teams, craft marketing messaging, assemble presentations, contribute to white papers, and more.
What's in it for you
- Build software used by users all around the world. So many different types of companies and organizations operate a fleet daily, and Fleetio is a good fit for most of them (it’s a huge market).
- Be a part of an incredible team of “A” players who go above and beyond to make Fleetio a successful company. We’re a customer-centric team with a great product, excellent support, and countless happy customers.
- Work remotely (within the United States) or at our Birmingham, AL HQ. About half of our product, engineering, and design teams work remotely, and as a company, we strive to promote a strong remote working culture and have done so since the beginning (2012).
