**Description** At Fleetio, we believe that building great software requires great product management. As a Product Manager, 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 around the world manage a fleet. Transportation technology is a hot market and we’re leading the charge, with raving fans and new customers signing up every day. 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. 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 building 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 a lot of them in order 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 Balsamiq 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 each day, 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 team work remotely, and as a company, we strive to promote a strong remote working culture and have done so since the beginning (2012). **More about our team and company:** * Watch our culture videos: <> * Fleetio overview video: <> * More about the Fleetio platform: <> * Our careers page: <> **Requirements** * 3+ years in a product management or UX development (or closely related) role on an agile software team. *Should you not meet the experience requirements but have true Product Management experience, we still encourage you to apply.* * Strong strategic decision-making — you will need to decide what to build and why — which isn't just about listening to customers tell you what features they want. * Strong technical background that enables you to convey product requirements to engineers and relay complicated details to non-technical colleagues and customers. * Natural leadership and influence, even when you don’t have direct authority over others within an organization. * Excellent organization and communication skills — this role is all about communicating while efficiently managing projects with many moving parts. * “Spidey-sense” product instinct and creativity. Able to suggest approaches that nobody on the team has thought of, but immediately strike everyone as obvious when they hear them. * Fundamental understanding of good UX design — you’re compelled to make things look beautiful and work flawlessly. * Natural curiosity and empathy — always looking to deeply understand problems and challenges. * Level up if you know a thing or two about cars, fleet management, vehicle maintenance, or related industries. * Be sure to mention coffee in your cover letter so we know you actually read this **Benefits** * 100% coverage of employee health and dental insurance (50% family) * 401(k) + match * Company stock options * Vision, STD & LTD * Dependent Care FSA and Medical FSA * Generous PTO, Company Holidays & Floating Holiday * Maternity/Paternity leave * Community service funds * Mac laptop * Professional development funds * Health and wellness incentives * Remote working friendly since 2012
