Senior Product Manager

OnTruck is transforming the road transportation industry – €600+bn in Europe. We are building the leading logistics network for B2B, on-demand road transport. We make trucking simple, transparent and on-demand.

We are backed by the top seed investors in Europe. Our team is rapidly growing and made up of the best in Tech, Product, Logistics and Operations.

What we do

The trucking industry has been stuck for the last 30 years managing shipments through complex, slow phone transactions. We are developing the technology platform and product to make the industry more efficient and effective.

We offer shippers a web platform to make the process of finding the right truck quick and simple. Carriers are able to accept shipments through a mobile app, letting them grow and manage their business with ease.

The team

Every one of us has had several start-up experiences and on average we have 10+ years of experience in somehow similar challenges. We know success, we know failure; we’ve built platforms from scratch, we’ve dealt with large legacy systems. We care about each other and about the product we’re building.

The product and engineering culture

  • We have a research oriented philosophy. We start researching the needs from external and internal clients, we discuss the potential solutions, we then do the design and finally we implement the chosen solution.
  • We value speed of iteration and best practices and we care about our craft: both our API and key JavaScript code have 100% test coverage, for instance.
  • We get engineers as close to the business problems as possible, so everybody can be involved in product decisions. We have mechanisms to enable anybody in the company to bring their new ideas to decision makers since we believe that innovative ideas come from everywhere.

The growth culture

We are disrupting a massive industry with significant inertia. To do so successfully, we are obsessed with being:

  • Agile and smart about how we work together, build products and make decisions
  • Lean where nobody micromanages or makes top-down decisions. We believe in giving trust and autonomy to all our employees.
  • Customer-first where we give shippers and carriers the best experience and service possible, across all interactions.
  • Accountable through clearly defined roles and goals – weekly, monthly and quarterly. Everyone is responsible to voice their opinion and reach their goals, so we can be better and constantly improving.
  • Hands-on to not only think deeply about key strategic questions, but get into the dirty details of more tactical, operational tasks day-to-day.

What we offer

  • An office in central Madrid (Sol). We are easily accessible by public transport, as well as close to public bike stations.
  • A flat, laid-back culture. Everybody is encouraged to participate in discussions and contribute.
  • Opportunities for personal growth and learning, every single day.
  • Competitive salaries and stock options packages. We want everyone to have ownership and participate in company success.
  • Flexible schedule. Though be strong believe in face-to-face communication so we don’t allow regular remote working.

  • You enjoy working in a team and appreciate modern process techniques. You are polite when reviewing other people’s work and take it well when you get feedback on yours.
  • You prefer working in a fast-paced start-up, with quick iterations, changes of direction, tight budgets, and chaos over a hierarchical, well-structured corporation with clear and well-defined assignments, and career paths.

  • You are able to stand up for your opinion and point out the risks when taking decisions.
