An Audacious Mission

Today, coordinating business travel is complex because of competing interests, opaque industry practices, convoluted systems, and bad software.

But we believe that travel is a force-multiplier for growth.

Travel connects teams to new and existing co-workers, partners, and customers. It enables new opportunities, produces unexpected collaboration, and shifts perspectives. That’s why we focus daily on making travel more about why you’re going and less about how you’ll get there. 

Our mission is to make in-person collaboration effortless.

 
Who is Pana?
Our core values…
    • Make Safe Spaces
      • People are happiest and most effective when they can take risks without fear of being judged as stupid, negative, or disruptive. We encourage admitting mistakes, asking questions, and offering new ideas.
    • Say What You Mean
      • We openly share our thoughts and feelings because we believe that debate leads to better decisions. We care about seeing each other succeed, so we frequently give direct and specific positive and constructive feedback to each other.
    • Check Your Ego
      • We’re solving unknown and complex challenges, so we constantly challenge our own assumptions and beliefs. We engage others’ feedback early and often, because we believe that teams accomplish more than individuals.
 The Role
We have an opportunity for a seasoned product manager who wants to have a big impact on a quickly-scaling business in the travel space.
 
As a product manager, you’ll be responsible for helping build tools that support booking travel for hundreds of thousands of customers. You’ll partner with business stakeholders, design and engineering to solve complex problems and deliver value to our customers.
 
You will be given the freedom and responsibility to make key product decisions that affect outcomes for hundreds of global companies. We have a strong focus on building high-quality and well-engineered products (our CEO was a former engineer!), and you will have the opportunity to influence how we maintain this focus during an aggressive growth period.
 
In return, we provide full benefits, unlimited vacation time, a competitive salary, stock options, and a chance to change the face of travel.
 
Responsibilities
  • Own product vision for your area, and ensure that it aligns with overall product and company vision.
  • Define functional requirements, product specifications and project plans to solve hard problems.
  • Collaborate with engineering, design, business teams, users, and customers to develop and ship impactful features and products.
  • Work with data and engineering teams to articulate clear metrics for measuring the impact of the features you ship.
  • Maintain relationships with external parties such as partners, vendors, and suppliers and manage projects related to integrating with their systems.

The Typical Day
  • Writing requirements for stories in the upcoming engineering sprint.
  • Running sprint planning and story point estimation with our engineers.
  • Prioritizing stories based upon feedback.
  • Coordinating a release strategy of a new feature with engineering and operations teams.
  • Meeting with customers to gather feedback and discover new opportunities.
  • Working with partners to understand they can help us deliver more value.
 Requirements
  • 6+ years of experience in a product role at a software company.
  • Extensive experience shipping complex product functionality functionality into production
  • Experience working within the travel industry is a huge benefit 
  • BA/BS or equivalent experience 
  • Ability to work in-person at our office in Denver (we're in RiNo!)

Note: An offer of employment at Pana is contingent upon passing a background check. This does not include a credit check. All background investigations will be conducted in accordance with the Fair Credit in Reporting Act and other applicable state/local regulations.

An Insider's view of Pana

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

Pana really encourages a strong work-life balance. I coach volleyball after work and I don’t feel any kind of pressure to give it up or to work while I’m out of office coaching or traveling with the team. We’re encouraged to spend our personal time on personal endeavors, and that helps me feel really present when I am at work.

Ryan

Sales Development Representative

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Right now we’re figuring out how to make trips go smoothly for guest travelers (candidates, medical professionals, etc.) who don’t know what policies they are meant to follow, or have an easy way to pay for/ expense travel costs. Figuring out how to mask the complexity of travel in order to make it super simple is incredibly interesting to tackle.

Kim

Product Manager

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Pana’s rapid growth has challenged me to learn more and faster than I ever imagined. The projects I’ve helped lead have made me feel like I’m having a real impact on Pana’s future. Everyone at the company shares a common goal and we’re working together to reach it, this has given my work meaning and made me invested in my future with Pana.

Kendall

Implementation Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We build idea meritocracies, where solutions come from anyone, no matter their title. We have processes, such as our daily Product Forum, where anyone can bring feedback/ideas (with well-justified arguments). We also hire for intellectual honesty—the ability to debate ideas on the merits of their reasoning, not because you want to be right.

Devon

CEO

How does the company support your career growth?

Pana has a really supportive and transparent culture. I’m not only allowed to make mistakes, but when I do, there’s support in place for me to recover and learn from them. We know what the company goals are and this makes it easier to know what to focus on to help achieve them. Plus, there’s always direct feedback about how I can grow with Pana.
