  • Work closely with technical experts to define product specifications, timelines, and supporting materials
  • Organize inputs from other business divisions to keep the development team steadily focused on delivering a responsive and innovative product
  • Simultaneously manage a wide variety of time-critical tasks across disciplines such as supply chain, design, engineering, testing, production, operations, and marketing
  • Resolve conflicts among team members and put in place safeguards to prevent them from arising again

What You’ll Need

  • 7+ years in the product development field - strong preference for transportation, consumer electronics, batteries, and industrial products
  • 2+ years managing teams and products
  • Strong writing skills
  • Bachelor’s degree in a relevant field
  • The ability to make decisions quickly, communicate effectively, own mistakes while recovering from them gracefully, and lead with humility
  • An inspiring and unique perspective that will strengthen the foundation of a team building world-leading electric mobility
  • Effective at motivating remote teams and partners to move quickly and remain positive in frustrating or unclear circumstances

 

About the Team

 

JUMP is building the future of urban mobility: shared electric bikes that are the quickest, most enjoyable, and most empowering way to get around a city. Cheaper than most public transit and faster than cars in traffic, JUMP e-bikes radically improve local transportation. Founded in 2010, JUMP pioneered dockless bike share and has deployed more than 15,000 bikes in 6 countries. Our goal is to transform cities, making them more sustainable, equitable, and livable through electric mobility. Recently acquired by Uber, our next step is to scale what we’ve done 100x - and launch electric bike sharing systems in every major city, globally. To make this vision a reality we need to grow our team. We place tremendous value on our company’s roots and culture: a mix of ingenuity, controlled chaos, hard work, and sense of purpose. This is a great opportunity to join a small but rapidly growing team that is shaping the future of transportation.
