As a Senior Product Manager (d/f/m) you will play a pivotal role in our growth journey, functioning as the glue between our product and commercial execution. As one of our early hires, you’ll have the opportunity to shape our product strategy from the beginning, addressing the problems of our customers with solutions that provide high value.

In this role, you will report directly to the Chief Technology Officer (CTO).

Leverage your insights to drive the evolution of our product offerings and stay ahead of the competition. Collaborate with sales and business development teams to drive growth through strategic partnerships and market penetration.
  • Cross-functional collaboration: Serve as “glue” between various internal teams, and facilitate effective communication and collaboration to ensure alignment and successful product launches.
  • Roadmap Planning: Develop and manage a comprehensive product roadmap that outlines key initiatives, features, and enhancements. Prioritize initiatives based on business value, customer impact, and resource availability.
What we’re looking for

  • Proven experience in managing all aspects of a successful product throughout its lifecycle.
  • Ability to understand and discuss technical concepts, evaluate trade-offs, and work with engineering teams.
  • Experience with tools like Figma or Sketch, or ability to collaborate effectively with designers.
  • Experience in working with agile methodologies like Scrum or Kanban.
  • We work heavily with Gitlab for product management. You enjoy working with the team to do backlog groomings, working on roadmaps, etc.
  • Ability to work effectively with cross-functional teams in a remote setup. You enjoy bringing together a remote team spread across Europe and Africa.
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills, as the role may involve liaising with different teams (technical, business, marketing) and clients.
  • Strong problem-solving skills and hands-on mentality to get the job done.
Nice to have:
  • Previous experience in working with cloud native technologies and understanding of geospatial systems and data.
We're ideally looking for a candidate who is based in Germany, the Netherlands or United Kingdom. Candidates based in Africa as well as all other European countries are welcome to apply as well. What we offer
  • Mission: VIDA is more than just another software company. As our work goes beyond lines of code and interfaces you’ll have the chance to create tangible impact in real lives.
  • Equity: We want to reward our team’s hard work and dedication. As we believe in fostering a culture where everyone can participate in the success of the company, we will make you part of our VSOP program.
  • Impact & growth: It’s an exciting time to join us! Shape our success story and company culture from the ground up and see the direct influence of your work.
  • Diversity: Our team's diversity is truly exceptional. With more than 15 nationalities on board already today and team members spread across the globe, you'll connect and learn from a wide range of perspectives.
  • Fully remote working & flexibility: We're strong advocates of autonomy and flexibility. We allow you to determine when and where you get your stuff done most effectively.
