Job Description

ABOUT onX

onX is a pioneer in digital outdoor navigation. With offices in Missoula and Bozeman, Montana, we are inspired by the landscapes that surround us. We bring our outdoor passion to work every day with a singular goal–to awaken the adventurer in everyone. We do this by developing industry-leading technology, and by crafting dynamic outdoor experiences. 

Through multiple years of growth, we haven’t lost our entrepreneurial ethos at onX. We offer a fast-paced, tech-forward environment where ownership and accountability are essential.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR

onX is seeking a Senior Product Manager responsible for defining the strategic vision, roadmap and feature definition of the product to ensure success in the market. The role requires careful analysis and balancing of multiple inputs and feedback to determine product-market fit and prioritization including customer feedback, user conversion, engagement and retention metrics, internal feedback and ideas, competitive research and market dynamics, and company objectives and goals.  The Senior Product Manager acts as the product owner, leading a cross-functional scrum team and working directly with other product managers, engineering, geospatial content, operations, UX and product design, product marketing, brand, and customer service teams to ensure alignment and product success.

The ideal candidate will have a strong customer orientation, developing and maintaining a deep understanding of customer use cases as well as a focus on experimentation and usage data to drive decisions and prioritization. An ability to lead and influence multi-functional teams across departments is paramount to ensure product success both internally and externally. 

This position will report to the Director of Product and will lead our Routing and Navigation team. This is not for our app/website navigation. This role is responsible for empowering our customers to create their outdoor adventure routes and navigate to and on them while in the backcountry. This role requires full ownership from the nuts and bolts of compiling and consolidating data sets to enable routing and navigation to the user experience as customers build routes and navigate in the field, turn-by-turn, and on foot. The ideal candidate has previous experience with a similar product and familiarity with turn costing, distraction-free design, and navigational datasets, but this is not a requirement. 

LOCATION

Missoula, MT; Bozeman, MT; Remote from USA considered for highly qualified candidates.
