Job Description

About The Role

WeaveGrid’s business is built on data products that integrate and mediate the needs of a diverse set of external stakeholders. This role will be responsible for the product development of one or more of the company’s core systems, ensuring that the capabilities of our electric vehicle charge management platform evolve to support the growth of our business.

This role will require deft translation between business objectives and the performance properties of data-driven and machine learning-based software. This will entail frequent code switching to communicate effectively with a range of team members, including the leaders of other product teams, software engineers and data scientists, our connected drivers, connected vehicle automakers and utility solutions teams, and functional leaders across the business.

Aside from these specifics, this role will comprise the core activities of enterprise SaaS product management, including maintaining the strategic product roadmap, scoping features, prioritizing backlog, documenting and demonstrating features, and coordinating with internal and external stakeholders to continuously refine the product and process. 

  • Collaborate with scrum team members on the design, definition, documentation and implementation of new capabilities and performance properties
  • Partner closely with other product leaders and their teams to integrate and harmonize the needs of their stakeholders and users
  • Work hand in hand with technical leads to identity and prioritize potential approaches, manage risks, and allocate resources to product development
  • Maintain a well-groomed backlog in Jira to enable efficient and properly-prioritized development sprints
  • Prepare and maintain the corresponding areas of the company’s overall product roadmap
  • Serve as the internal and external subject matter expert for product offerings, working with Sales, Marketing and Client Success groups
  • Support strategic initiatives and other duties as needed to ensure product success

About You

You have experience in product management for products whose requirements are expressed largely in terms of their performance along various technical metrics; relevant past projects might include developer tools, data products based on machine learning, or real-time data processing systems. You may have worked in the transportation or energy domains, but this is not a requirement.

You have a solid grounding in quantitative and analytical methods, though you are always drawn to frame questions and results in the language of the current audience. You are motivated by performance and outcomes, rather than the application or exploration of technology for its own sake.

You are a team player, committed to helping colleagues and accomplishing shared goals. You seek out compelling evidence for your decisions, although you are willing to act under uncertainty and adapt quickly to emerging market signals.

You are excited to build products and systems that power high-impact solutions to some of the most pressing challenges in the climate crisis. Infrastructure is not a dirty word for you, but rather one of the most exciting realms in which to make a positive difference. You share the WeaveGrid team’s commitment to achieving outcomes that support the shift to electrified transport and a decarbonized electric grid.

  • 5+ years of experience in product management, ideally with complex, data-intensive products
  • Strong ability to translate between different stakeholders
  • Clear and succinct communication practices - verbally and in writing
