About Raptor Maps
Solar power is the largest source of new energy in the world. Raptor Maps is a fast-growing, venture-backed, MIT-born climate tech startup that is building software to enable the solar energy industry to scale. Parties across the entire solar lifecycle use Raptor Maps’ data model to manage ever growing utility-scale solar portfolios. We are an industry leader with hundreds of customers, including owners, builders, operators, and aerial service providers, across over 45 countries with 200+ million solar panels under management. Our software platform is essential in the fight against climate change.
We’re looking for a talented full-time Product Manager to help execute the strategy for our Robotics squad. The ideal candidate is excited to use their hands on engineering and/or robotics chops to reshape many core“last mile” use cases of solar farm asset management, while growing in the craft of product management. In this role, you will work at a fast, startup pace. The role will push you outside of your comfort zone by combining product sense, robotics experience and real-world conditions. For example, one week you may be doing discovery with users and building a go-to-market strategy for a new feature, then the next two weeks you may be coordinating with our team in the field and testing at a utility-scale solar farm.
The right candidate for this role will be able to juggle competing priorities, enjoys an outdoor adventure, is excited to travel as needed, and is resourceful.

  • Communicate and collaborate often with other Raptor Maps teams in support of each phase of the development cycle
  • Own and develop your understanding of the rapidly growing and evolving solar power industry, informing your analysis of the squad’s opportunity space
  • Help maintain a product roadmap by synthesizing product signals and weighing priorities
  • Generate and maintain documentation in support of your squad’s products

Qualifications

  • Bachelor’s Degree in Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science, or equivalent
  • Hands on experience with commercial-off-the-shelf robots or drones(DJI, Spot, FANUC, etc)
  • 2+ years of direct professional experience in product, design or engineering
  • Demonstrated ability to make decisions informed by qualitative and quantitative data
  • Excellent written, oral and leadership skills
  • Ability to learn and speak the language of customers and cross-functional team members(engineering, design, operations, sales etc.)
  • High empathy levels, collaborative spirit and strong alignment with our core principles
  • Must be primarily located in the contiguous US
  • Must be authorized to work in the US

Preferred Qualifications

  • Startup experience
  • Understanding of utility scale or commercial and industrial solar technology, project development, operations and maintenance or finance
  • Professional experience with robotics products, robotics software product or related technologies(e.g. self driving cars, unmanned ground vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, automated factories)
