We reframe old problems, seek new solutions and operate comfortably in areas that are unknown. Our backgrounds are diverse, but our team shares a love of the outdoors and a desire to protect it for future generations.

    • Drive the planning and implementation of program and features with the cross-functional teams to hit roadmap goals, tracking progress, analyzing risks, resolve execution issues and communicating status.
    • \n
    • Develop and manage program schedules, technical issues, release management and resource needs with engineering and cross-functional teams.
    • \n
    • Manage communication of progress/status with stakeholders and leadership in various locations and time zones, own and nurture relationships between cross-functional teams
    • \n
    • Implement process improvements to streamline product development and continuously manage risks.
    • \n

    Qualifications

      \n
    • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, Electrical Engineering, or a related engineering field
    • \n

    • \n
    • Track record of launching consumer electronics, IoT devices and/or other similar hardware/software devices from concept to production.
    • \n
    • Experience managing embedded device hardware/software releases and integration into front-end/back-end software systems.
    • \n
    • Proficiency with bug program management software tools (i.e., JIRA, Smartsheets, Agile/Arena, etc.)
    • \n
    • Passion for and demonstrated proficiency in working with cross-functional hardware & software teams.
    • \n
    • Highly collaborative mindset and strong communication skills.

    Qualifications

    • Bachelor’s degree in computer science, Electrical Engineering, or a related engineering field
    • 10+ years of experience in program management, product management, engineering or similar cross-functional role
    • Track record of launching consumer electronics, IoT devices and/or other similar hardware/software devices from concept to production.
    • Experience managing embedded device hardware/software releases and integration into front-end/back-end software systems.
