Senior Product Manager (Robotics)

Postmates Vancouver, BC

Postmates X 

At Postmates X, we’re reimagining how things move in cities. Serve, our personable sidewalk delivery robot, is our vision for the future of delivery. It’s designed to take deliveries away from congested streets and onto underutilized alleys and sidewalks, to save energy, reduce emissions, reduce traffic, and make deliveries faster and cheaper. Why move two-pound burritos with two-ton cars?


A Day In The Life

As a Senior Product Manager, you will create a roadmap of robot capabilities. You will shepherd projects from conception to launch and optimize post-launch to improve delivery efficiency.


You might spend your morning observing an Alpha feature being tested on the streets of LA, discuss delivery pain points with the Ops team, and then run queries to validate your theories. Then spend your afternoon brainstorming with the Design team and the Hardware team on opportunistic updates to the robot. Jump in to scope a feature identifying hazards on the sidewalks leveraging computer vision. End your day by modeling the Alpha features' expected impact to delivery efficiency and iterate on obstacle avoidance requirements with the Navigation team. There will be no 'routine' days, but you can count on each day being cross-functional and fast-paced. 


Responsibilities 

Own the product vision for features that push forward the delivery efficiency and reliability of the robot including prioritization and scope

Work with different teams (Cognition, Navigation, Mapping, Ops, Design among others) to evolve what the robot can do, from improvements to obstacle avoidance and routing to autonomous expressions based on situational awareness

Develop requirements and user stories that distill real world events, stakeholder feedback, technical trade-offs, and data analysis into actionable features 

Proactively identify product gaps and business opportunities
