As a Product Manager at Axion, you care deeply about understanding our clients and the problems they have in accelerating vehicle development & ensuring high quality. You’ll work with innovative engineering leaders to understand their needs and translate them into the development process of new features. At Axion, we inspire our product engineering team by building deep empathy for our customers’ experiences, needs, and by painting a picture of how the future we want to deliver will be different and better.

You’ll translate our clients' needs into solutions & work closely with engineers, data scientists, and machine learning engineers to enhance our platform to meet our user’s needs and bring new and exciting industry-first product experience to market.

By working with design, engineering, and more, you’ll gain experience in team building, leadership, and driving consensus across an organization. You’ll translate customer feedback and discovery into tactics for your team by co-developing new features with our customers, all while getting valuable experience in the tactics of end-to-end feature development and release.
