Product Manager

Job Description

Are you bored? Is management where you are currently working too focused on politics and power games and not results? Are they threatened by your drive, intellect and ways of looking at things differently? Do you find yourself being able to do something in 1 hour that takes most people 3? Then do we have a role for you! This is not a 9-5 job - this is a career opportunity to make your mark not only in Australia but also in the USA and Europe where the company is currently operating and expanding. We don't believe in excuses or wingeing. The company values are driven by the unrelenting passion and emphasis on customer service, problem solving and results that can be backed by data. You will need to park your ego at the door like we all do, and have the strength of character to backup your views with outcomes. The company encourages fast growth not by the length of time you are in any specific role, but by sustainable results and personal accountability. Can you handle it? Does this excite or intrigue you? Are you willing to shake off the shackles that hold you back? If the answer is yes..read on.

We are a fast growing, complex online logistics/delivery tracking and management software company that enables business owners to automatically dispatch like Uber, track like Dominos, optimise routes like FedEx as well as manage the delivery of goods and mobile workforces.

The company is well funded and listed on the ASX in 2016. We also recently won 1st prize for the Australia-Pacific OzApps award among other accolades….but enough about us. This is all about you….

We're not just looking for a product manager, we're looking for someone who is prepared to go above and beyond customer service levels. You will need to quickly understand our strategic opportunity and work with us to expand our global product roadmap and roll out the platform across the client portfolio. The company is also in the process of evaluating acquisition targets so there is an opportunity to learn this sector and participate as part of technical/product M&A team.  You will need to have the right drive, motivation and hunger for success above all else. Your success will directly correspond to your ability to onboard the demand the company has in its pipeline.

  • Data driven analytics and business intelligence projects to help different departments of our client make better decisions

  • Real-time delivery tracking and mapping projects to improve the user experience of our client’s and their receiving customers

We offer a competitive salary package (they all say that), a great work environment (we mean it), and the opportunity to travel and be part of a team with an entrepreneurial culture. But above all else we offer you new experiences, the ability to pick up new skills along with freedom and respect!
