We are a tightly knit strike team who is passionate about 'moving the needle' with innovative technology, making data-driven decisions, and pushing the boundaries of our expertise. We get to wrestle with cutting-edge technology spanning multiple disciplines all day long— the Internet of Things, electronic paper, solar power generation and storage, proprietary sensing methodologies, AND MORE!

Soofa is for people with a shared stake in a special place. Join us!

 

Opportunity

As the most senior Product Manager on the team, you will help guide the evolution of not only our media product (digital and sponsorship-based advertising in OOH), but our future as an organization. You will bring your expertise and build processes we don't have—your way. You are passionate and opinionated, and we will empower you to be successful and impactful. And if you have your eyes set on a leadership role, this is the way to get there.

  • Build a deep understanding of customer perspectives and specific needs our team can serve
  • Develop a product roadmap that prioritizes high-impact customer solutions and contributes to key company goals
  • Continuously capture insights from customer feedback, experiments, research, and analysis to iterate on the roadmap and improve the product. Transform visionary ideas and direct user feedback into actionable, delightful new experiences and enhancements
  • Define metrics and KPIs for the features your team builds, then measure the impact of product releases and use data to inform the roadmap
  • Empower the organization, especially Customer Support and Sales, with training and support materials for product release
  • Act as customer-to-engineer translator, clearly documenting features and functionality in a way that can be easily consumed and built by developers
  • Become a trusted advocate and product resource for product initiatives
  • Analyze and report on key product initiatives to executives, product teams, and other key stakeholders

 

Qualifications

  • 4+ years' experience in building and shipping platform products resulting in significant business impact
  • Deep experience with experimentation (A/B testing, beta testing, etc.)
  • Agile methodology experience
  • You’ve completely owned a project from start to finish and knocked it out of the park!
  • Experience creating product roadmap(s) from conception to launch, driving product vision, defining go-to-market strategy and leading design discussions

 

Candidate Characteristics

  • Passionate about bringing clarity into the product. Ambiguity doesn’t scare you
  • Strong understanding of how to work effectively with engineering leadership and engineering teams directly
  • Passion for how the work gets done as much as the work itself
  • Ability to build alignment across multiple teams and stakeholders
  • Ability to tailor your communication to any audience
  • Comfortable facilitating meetings and ensuring all voices in the room are heard

 

Bonus Points For

  • Experience at a startup 
  • Experience in the smart cities space
  • Experience in the media/advertising space, especially OOH
  • Experience with a hardware product

  • Dog-friendly office
  • Virtual team events
  • Company culture focused on talent development and caring personally

An Insider's view of Soofa

How does your team reward individual success?

From gong rings to weekly shout outs, a Soofarian’s achievements are never kept quiet. Soofarians set quarterly goals and get support from the rest of their team to reach them. At Soofa, there is nothing better than having your hard work acknowledged by your fellow peers. Our company works hard, plays hard and we love a good reason to celebrate!

Kayla Zaylor

Operations Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I love that a lot of my work involves meeting with local government partners, attending neighborhood association or city council meetings, and going to conferences, or going out to new neighborhoods to find the best locations for our signs or oversee the installation of a new Sign and answer any questions curious passerbys might have.

Lyra Schweizer

Director of City Growth

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I was hired as an engineering intern, then into a full-time product manager role. Working with so many aspects of our org has helped me learn how to speak the language of every employee and department. I can speak up for resources I need to hit company goals, and I have ownership over our metrics—which enables and encourages me to get things done.

Charlotte Warne

Product Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

We hold monthly "content-making parties" where we all gather over video (it used to be in person, with cheese, but alas) and create content for our Soofa neighborhoods using Canva, our favorite creative tool. It's a great way to de-stress and clear the cobwebs!
