Who we are
Over the course of the past five years we have grown to a business of over 1,500 Instaboxers – diverse in who we are, but united by a single purpose: providing the smoothest shipping experience known to mankind. Parcels have been delivered to people's homes for centuries, millennia even (rough guesstimation disclaimer). But a solution with digitalized lockers connected by sophisticated software that allows the user to know precisely when the order is ready for pickup, let's just say that is something new.
As we continue to expand our product offering to new merchants and geographic regions, our logistical network and operations are getting increasingly complex. That is why we are now looking for additional Product Managers to help us tackle these exciting new challenges. “What might that mean?” you may wonder. Funny you should ask:
What you will be doing
As a Product Manager at Instabox, you will develop a vision roadmap for a specific product domain. Together with internal stakeholders as well as through close collaboration with the Product domain group, you’ll identify opportunities that will lead us to further improve our products and processes. We handle millions of parcels every month, so any positive change has the potential to have a huge impact.
It will be your responsibility to create, prioritize and maintain the backlog according to business value (we always think "user first"!) and lead the development team in reaching the goals set by you and the Product management team. This includes being able to partake in technical discussion with the engineering team you are working closely with, where you will ensure that technological investments take place accordingly.
You will take a vital role in testing and rolling out new features and workflows. Together with the other departments, you will onboard users and ensure that the changes are giving expected results.
Who you are
In order to be successful in this role, we expect
- You have experience in setting a backlog by continuous assessment of short and long term goals, and executing them in collaboration with the engineering team
- You love building products that add real value
- You have excellent interpersonal skills and presentation skills and are able to adapt the way you communicate based on the audience in order to get them on board
- You enjoy switching between having a strategic mindset to being hands-on and running tactical work
- You are not afraid to say “no” and back up your decisions with data and a counter-plan
We offer you
A role at the very center of what makes Instabox, Instabox. Not only will you play an integral part in developing our product offering, but also to build the Product organization. We as an organization are constantly at work to find ways to improve our way of working. As we are a relatively small team of (currently) seven product managers, your input will shape how we as a team decide to work together.
We can promise you that you will be challenged, pushed to develop your skillset and have the opportunity to work with open, driven, and smart colleagues. The journey ahead is what excites every Instaboxer working here today and we are just getting started.
Then there is the compensation package, benefits, centrally located office etc. but we’ll get to that in due time.
Hit “Apply” and give us a chance to show you how fantastic this job could be. We look forward to meeting you.
