Product

With VC funding, Unacast has opened offices in Oslo and NYC, and been featured in everything from Fast Company to Venturebeat and Business Insider. We were named «10 Northern European Startups To Follow In 2016» and also awarded the Best New Nordic Company and Best IoT Startup at the Nordic Startup Awards. Recently Inc. Magazine covered us as “The startup that just might threaten Google”.


We are hiring a Product Manager to help lead Unacast forward in building a first of its kind Proximity Data Platform. As a Product Manager at Unacast, you will help drive a data-first culture across the company working with our teams located in both New York City and Oslo, Norway.  Your main tasks will be to help spec and prioritize the product roadmap, along with leading the product life cycle from ideation to release.  Your role will actively contribute in improving existing and new products, ensuring high data quality on both the supply and demand side, data evaluation, fraud detection, and incorporation of new data sources.
You will work in a cross-functional team consisting of engineers, data scientists, and sales representatives. Your main hub will be at our Manhattan offices, but you are free to work from anywhere you want as long as you get things done. You’ll also have the opportunity to work out of our Oslo, Norway offices for periods of time, and you can expect to travel there at least a couple of times every year.
Our current product development process most closely resembles an Agile Framework, but it is tailored to specifically meet our internal structure and culture.  Your leadership will help guide us in improving and refining this process as we execute against our exponential growth. 
To us, innovation is the ability to tackle the challenges we don't currently know we have before someone else does it. For that reason, we acknowledge that we need a diverse team with different background and experience. If you feel that your knowledge can help us get to the next level, we'd love to speak to you.
