Product Manager

Los Angeles
Automation – Product /
FTE (Full Time) /
Hadrian builds software-defined high precision factories for the top aerospace companies in the world. After a successful customer beta we are substantially scaling our operations to our second factory (based in Torrance, Los Angeles) and are in the final stretch of building our core software team from whom the future of Hadrian will be built upon. This team will build custom in house software solutions to help improve, automate and scale the future of manufacturing in the U.S.

We've raised >$200m to achieve this vision, with multiple rounds from Lux Capital, A16Z, Founders Fund, Construct Capital, Caffeinated Capital and more."

Role Overview

Hadrian's FactoryOS ("Flow") is the app that runs Hadrian’s factories. It’s the ‘do-everything’ engine at the heart of Hadrian.

It automates everything we do: from day-to-day factory operations, to generating customer paperwork, to supply chain operations, quality inspections and more.

As a Product Manager at Hadrian, you will be responsible adding core functionality to Flow and making existing functionality better.

In this role you will

    • Interact directly with the users you’re designing for: regardless of they’re machine operators, customers, quality inspectors, or program managers
    • Learn about every aspect of what is necessary to manufacture and deliver precision aerospace components with industry-leading reliability and speed
    • Cultivate thoughtful product management practices as a core discipline at Hadrian
    • Mentor future PMs
    • Deliver real business value quickly — our largest software projects last weeks, not months
    • Work with engineers and industry experts from SpaceX, Oculus, Google, Flexport, Boston Dynamics, and Stripe

This might be a good fit if you

    • Work quickly; you’re comfortable sharing product specs and iterating quickly with subject matter experts
    • Are adept in explaining your work and process, and taking on feedback
    • Think in systems and want to extrapolate and extend shared patterns and behaviors
    • Want to deeply understanding the product you’re building for; details matter
    • Get a kick out of Manufacturing, Space, Defense and our mission
    • Grasp product impacts to users and factory operations intuitively
    • Have 3-10 years experience working in product development, with at least 2 years as a product manager

Nice to have

    • Experience with video games, ERPs, or products with guided flows (e.g. TurboTax)
    • Management experience
    • Internal tooling or B2B workflow experience
    • Aerospace / Healthcare / FinTech / experience (we handle sensitive data)
    • Designed interfaces for complex real world environments (eg: logistics, factories, gig economy)
Compensation and Benefits

For this role, the target salary range is $150,000 - $300,000 (actual range may vary based on experience). 

This is the lowest to highest salary we reasonably and in good faith believe we would pay for this role at the time of this posting. We may ultimately pay more or less than the posted range, and the range may be modified in the future. An employee’s pay position within the salary range will be based on several factors including, but not limited to, relevant education, qualifications, certifications, experience, skills, geographic location, performance, and business or organizational needs.

In addition to salary and equity, we offer:
• 100% coverage of platinum medical, dental, vision, and life insurance plans for employees
• Relocation stipend if you’re moving from outside of LA
• Flexible vacation policy
