Senior Product Manager

Do you want to help people get where they are going faster, cheaper, and without ever having to worry about traffic? Voom is a long-term bet on urban air mobility as an alternative to ground transportation. To start we are building the world’s first truly on-demand helicopter booking platform that provides travelers with the ultimate in convenience and reliability, yet does so in the most affordable way possible.  We are creating new products, businesses, and processes to more efficiently leverage the world’s existing helicopter fleet, and preparing for the next wave of vertical flight vehicles. Voom is operational today in São Paulo and Mexico City, with more cities launching this year. Voom is a subsidiary of Airbus, the world’s largest airplane and helicopter manufacturer.

The Senior Product Manager is responsible for guiding our product strategy, functional requirements, product design, and prioritization across Voom’s product(s).  A Senior Product Manager is a skilled analyst and business person, able to weigh competing priorities and rapidly optimize.

  • Work alongside the CPO to develop and maintain the product backlog though various tools (Trello, Pivotal Tracker, etc) and build the Product practice within Voom.  You will also be sharing these tools and methodologies with Airbus at-large.
  • Make quick, data-supported decisions about what to do (and what not to do too).
  • Work with Voom’s designers to conduct user research, gather competitive intelligence, and utilize data to learn what works and doesn’t work to deliver growth.
  • Build relationships across the organization, stakeholder groups, the executive team, and the greater Airbus organization in order to successfully manage multiple complex projects, and ensure that the business is scaling according to plan.

  • Able to wear many hats, including but not limited to: Quality Assurance, Business Intelligence, Localization, and Project Management.
