About the Role: 

As a Product Manager at Planet, you lead complex, multi-disciplinary engineering projects using your engineering expertise and product vision. You plan requirements with internal customers and usher projects through the entire product lifecycle. This includes managing coordinating stakeholder input, product roadmap and schedules, identifying risks, and clearly communicating them to stakeholders. You're equally at home explaining your analyses and recommendations to executives as you are discussing the technical trade-offs in product development with engineers.

You will be primarily responsible for the ongoing evolution of Planet’s SkySat products.  You will work on one of the core foundations of all of Planet’s products, the 50cm high resolution SkySat imagery global imagery. You’ll be responsible for gathering requirements and setting goals to make Planet’s SkySat imagery ideally suited to all of our users downstream; from our most valuable customers to our internal analytic models. You will work very closely with the other core imagery product managers, as well as engineering and satellite operational teams, to clearly articulate requirements and priorities. In addition, you will look to customers and customer-facing teams to gather feedback that drives consistent and well-maintained improvements. You will be the voice of the customer back to the broader imagery product team as our suite of imagery-based products evolve.

The mission of Planet’s SkySat imagery PM will be to capture and deliver the highest quality imagery products that the SkySats can physically produce. This is central to Planet’s mission to image the entire Earth every day and make global change visible, accessible, and actionable.

  • Set project priorities and work through team leads to advance projects from development through implementation
  • Capture and prioritize product requirements from multiple sources such as customers, users, Sales, Engineering, Customer Success, Tech Support, etc.

What You Bring:

  • 3-5 years experience as a product manager
  • Experience in imagery applications and characteristics; familiarity with concepts like resolution, compositing, radiometry, rectification, etc.
  • A strong intuitive grasp on working collaboratively in a constantly evolving environment, such as cross-department interactions, and using business/enterprise toolchains for project coordination
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills at the technical level, and using a variety of tools (e.g., JIRA)
  • Excellent analytical, problem-solving, and creative thinking skills
  • Must be energetic, empathetic, creative, and self-motivated
  • Diversity of experience is appreciated and valued
  • Creative and flexible problem solver
