Senior Technical Product Manager

| Greater Denver Area

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.


The Role
We have an opportunity for a seasoned technical product manager who wants to have a big impact on a quickly-scaling business in the travel space.
 
As a technical product manager, you’ll be responsible for helping build the infrastructure and systems which support booking travel for hundreds of thousands of customers. You’ll be tasked with understanding the complexity of how the underlying systems that power the travel industry function, and you’ll partner with engineering to develop new products which harness these systems to 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.
 
This is a truly unique opportunity for someone to embark on a career-transforming journey. As such, it is going to require a truly unique individual to do it well; we suggest you read this blog post and ensure you’re a “whole-body” YES to everything in it before applying.
 
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 external feedback.
  • Coordinating a release strategy of a new feature with engineering and operations teams.
  • Meeting with an airline inventory provider to better understand how to integrate with their system
 Requirements
  • 6+ years of experience in a product role at a software company.
  • Extensive experience shipping complex product functionality functionality into production
  • Experience working with travel infrastructure and Global Distribution Systems (GDS) such as Sabre, TravelPort, or Amadeus highly preferred
  • Technical experience highly preferred, but not required. (We think ex-engineers make great PMs!)
  • BA/BS or equivalent experience 
  • Ability to work in-person at our office in Denver (we're in RiNo!).

An Insider's view of Pana

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.
