The Team

Looking to join a strong Product team with a vision to build the future of transportation? At Arity, achieving our goals requires a product manager eager to confront tough problems and collaborate regularly with engineers, customers, and stakeholders to drive creative solutions.
Within the Product team, you’ll be responsible for discovering, delivering, and managing the products in Arity’s growing portfolio, as well as ensuring we are building the right products and defining KPIs to measure their success. Our purpose is to work collaboratively across functions at Arity to move forward the most impactful work for the organization.
We’re looking for a dynamic new teammate who’s comfortable with change and ambiguity. You may be scoping out use cases of a new implementation at one moment, providing design critique the next, and then finishing up by building out a roadmap around a new feature. Above all, an Arity Product Manager should possess insatiable curiosity and high attention to detail.
