Technical Product Manager


DESCRIPTION:  We provide the data necessary to design, build and launch rockets faster, cheaper and with continually higher quality. We accomplish this by building state-of-the art software, and analyzing data to uncover patterns for quick decision making.
We design systems that track millions of physical parts and complex manufacturing activities in remote locations.  We build systems that process massive amounts of data and engineering tools that enable rapid design and iteration. We are seeking team members of all backgrounds who are passionate about space and who have a strong desire to serve on a team that is the backbone of the company.
As a technical product manager, you’ll work side-by-side with astronauts, rocket scientists and software engineers to build a new generation of business systems. You’ll evaluate commercial systems where appropriate and help design custom systems where necessary. You’ll evangelize our products to the business and serve as the primary point-of-contact when users desire new features. We put a strong emphasis on hands-on technical ability, so you should be prepared and willing to get your head deep into both analytical and engineering problems. The role of technical product manager will be extremely challenging but also rewarding as you will have the opportunity to be highly impactful and influence change across the organization.
