Head of Product

Full-Time Palo Alto, CA, USA Closes: 2021-03-01

Who we are

At Inpixon, we turn location data into actionable indoor intelligence. Our comprehensive intelligence platform with mapping, positioning, security, and analytics harnesses the future of the Internet of Things (IoT) now.

We are motivated by and focused on our vision to ‘do good’ with indoor data and build something that can quite literally change the world we interact with. We take pride in the way we positively impact the daily lives of our customers and continue to push the boundaries of how our platform can benefit others.

Inpixon’s Indoor Intelligence technology ingests diverse data from IoT and third-party sensors designed to detect and position all active devices – cellular, wifi, Bluetooth, and Ultra-wide Band – using a proprietary computing process ensuring anonymity. Our platform provides a complete solution to locate, track, guide, and monitor everything indoors along with the plug-in architecture and open APIs that enable interoperability and seamless integration with other systems, increasing the reach, flexibility, and power of indoor solutions.

The opportunity

Inpixon is scaling rapidly, and to support that growth, we have a newly created opportunity for a Head of Product. Reporting to and partnering with our COO, this is a rare chance to join a company that is continuously innovating, testing, and trying new ideas while maintaining a well-funded, established presence in the market as an industry leader.

You will use your insights, creativity, and analytical abilities to dive into who we are, gain a deep understanding of our vision, and ultimately roll out a philosophy and methodology to amplify our success. You will work in close collaboration with engineering, design, marketing, sales, and other departments, diplomatically navigating a culture of homegrown and globally acquired resources and products. As the primary driver of our products, you will oversee the development and management of product roadmaps and lifecycle, enhancing the definition and direction of our growth; and further building out our product strategy to fit – and anticipate – the needs of the market. This is a chance to work remotely and transition to our office in Palo Alto for part of the week once pandemic restrictions are lifted.

Who you are

You are an experienced Product leader with a passion for innovation, insights into a SaaS organization, a customer-centric point of view, and a willingness to take calculated risks. You thrive in a role that combines people and product leadership; analytics and innovation; technology with customers. You have proven, progressive success delivering world-class products, leading teams from product concept to successful adoption in the market.

What’s in it for you

A genuine career opportunity. We are at a turning point in how indoor space is experienced, and we are growing rapidly. You want to take an entrepreneurial approach to spearhead our product strategy. Whether you’ve hit the ceiling at a startup or you’ve moved to a bigger company and recognize you miss the challenges of building something new, you want to be at the helm.

A high growth company. Inpixon is building an incredible suite of products that provides intelligent post-pandemic return to work tools; cybersecurity tools; asset tracking; and enhanced indoor positioning. We are disciplined about pouring our R&D dollars into advancing our offerings, and we recently raised $40 million. This is a chance to join a company that offers the best of both worlds: the stability of a well-funded, publicly-traded stable organization and strong work-life balance with the fast-paced, responsive, and Agile environment of a scale-up investing in research and the latest-in-everything.

A collaborative team and supportive leader. We want your ideas and your involvement. This is a place where you can make mistakes and learn from them. You want to sit in the driver’s seat of technology changing the world, with access to the resources, funding, and support to take your ideas from concept to execution. At Inpixon, innovation is not just a word we throw around, it’s our driving force. We are confidently poised to take risks to succeed, and you want to do the same.

Innovation. You will leverage your extensive product background and experience to gain buy-in for your product roadmap, presenting to senior management and diverse stakeholders. You will use product data, modeling, and analytics to plan, measure performance, and improve products with every iteration.

Product/Market Evaluation. You will investigate and analyze the product market and associated competitors, identifying and presenting opportunities to the product committee for validation and testing. You will influence the product strategy and ensure that informed and beneficial decisions align with our fundamental business priorities.

Problem Resolution. You will identify issues in the strategies developed by the junior product management and bring to a resolution, ensuring solutions meet financial, strategic, and technical goals.
