About the Role:
As the Sr. Product Manager, Real Time Insights, you are responsible for the product strategy and development of Planet's next generation real time high resolution tasking capability. You will design, specify and build Planet’s next generation tasking capability based on near real time communications and next generation high resolution spacecraft. You will define Planet’s real time tasking capability such that Planet is competitive with “direct access” providers but builds product capabilities that are far better and more valuable in the market. This PM must coordinate closely with:
You will work closely with engineering teams to ensure the new imagery and real time tasking interfaces are ready for customers on day one of operations. You will proactively engage across Product Management and Engineering to ensure RTI dependencies outside your direct control are represented in the product roadmap. The current maturity of the next generation high resolution mission means you will continue to refine and clarify spacecraft, payload and ground infrastructure requirements for the Space Systems team. In addition, you will work with the software engineering team to develop the proper data processing pipeline and novel fast track pipeline(s).
Most importantly, you will ensure excellent product-market-fit for Planet’s Real Time Insights and next generation high resolution products. This requires tight coordination across the broader go-to-market team and relentless drive to create a customer-centric, sustainable and profitable business.
Product Management is not the direct supervisor of their engineering teams. Thus, to be effective, you must demonstrate a strong commitment to Planet’s cultural values, agile principles and leadership through influence to succeed in this role.
