We are looking for a Product Manager (m/f/d) for 8a.nu and the Vertical-Life app

EDITORIAL

Monday, 9 May

This is an opportunity to combine your passion for climbing with your professional expertise. You’ll get to work on and develop software that many of your climbing friends interact with every week.
As a product manager, your job is to find efficient ways to improve 8a.nu and Vertical-Life, and to bring them closer together. You will formulate clear user stories and - journeys with a great day out climbing in mind, whether that is in the gym, or on the way to a remote crag. You’ll be in charge of documenting, coordinating and prioritizing the team’s tasks that range from UX improvements and new features, to technical improvements that pave the way for future development. To manage all of this, you will rely on your ability to work methodically and to think analytically, as well as your deep understanding of climber’s needs and how 8a.nu and the Vertical-Life app can best serve them.

Requirements:
- You are a passionate, well-traveled and competent climber. You know a glue-in from an expansion bolt and don’t think of the stock market first when you hear ‘Wallstreet’
- You have a demonstrated ability of analytical thinking and like to get to the bottom of things. A university degree in computer science, a natural science or similar is a plus.
- You are committed to quality, that’s why you diligently test changes before they go out.
- You are able to manage an international, partially remote, team and coordinate their work.
- You are fluent in German and English and able to communicate clearly.
- You are willing to travel to South Tyrol in regular intervals (min. 6 times a year).
- Previous experience in software development, product management or data analysis is a plus.

Sound like you?
Great, we would love to hear from you! Please send the following to [email protected]:
- Your CV in English or German, highlighting your most relevant professional experience, as well as a short list of your favorite climbs.
- A one-page write-up (Cover Letter) in which you briefly introduce yourself and tell us why you would like to work with us.

About us:
We are a team of roughly 30 people from more than 12 countries that share the common goal of creating software and digital solutions that express our passion for climbing. Our office is located in Brixen, South Tyrol, but some of us work remotely and visit sporadically. We have five main products - the Smart Climbing Gym software, NO-Q, the result service, 8a.nu, and the Vertical-Life App. While we’ve been focused on the first two in the last two years, we are now expanding our team and itching to better connect and improve 8a.nu and Vertical-Life. Join us to make it happen!
