As Zing’s first Product Manager, you will own Zing’s product (digital & physical) roadmap, specification, quality and analysis. We are looking for an experienced, independent, and out-of-the-box thinker to join us and build Zing’s complete offering with our software, hardware and operations teams. You will work directly with our CEO to deliver an amazing customer experience while utilizing cutting edge technology to drive operational efficiency, growth, and scale. At Zing, we try to infuse each customer experience with a bit of magic; we also know that there’s no magic if we haven’t gotten the basics of our product design exactly right. While scaling Zing’s existing tech from one to many locations, from a few vehicle prototypes to a fleet of hundreds of smart, modular, and connected Zing-mobiles, you will work alongside our entire tech, data and operations organizations to be as obsessed with product excellence as the founding team. You will be joining a high-growth, venture-backed startup — led by co-founders who have founded and led multiple successful businesses — and will play a critical role in scaling our business into an entirely new mode of commerce!
