Altana provides the world’s only dynamic, intelligent map of the global supply chain - the Altana Atlas - using AI and machine learning models to connect with and learn from massive sets of public and private data. Through the Atlas, companies and governments can understand the distant origins of products well beyond their own direct suppliers; discover trading relationships and national security risks deep in their networks; measure labor and environmental impacts; identify related risks and opportunities; ensure effective compliance and enforcement with trade requirements; and collaborate to manage all of it.

We have built a fundamental understanding of how the world’s economy works, and the implications for global resiliency, sustainability and opportunity are enormous. Backed by leading investors and used by the world’s most important organizations (Maersk, US Customs and Border Protection, Boston Scientific, and more), Altana’s mission is to power a new era of globalization organized around trusted supply chain networks.

This is a lofty mission, and our success depends on building a diverse, global team and creating an environment in which they can thrive. We operate in accordance with our values: we focus on value creation, not capture; we foster diversity and embrace difference; we embrace reality; we get things done; we amaze our clients. When you join Altana, you’ll be joining a vibrant, collaborative team working together to solve complex problems with the potential for global societal impact.

The Opportunity at Altana

The Product team is looking for a Director of Product Management to lead the product and design efforts for a collaborative system of engagement. You’ll be responsible for working closely with a diverse set of clients, coordinating with our commercial and marketing teams, incorporating company and executive vision, and collaborating with engineering to synthesize a cohesive product experience and execution plan that drives results. Some key product surface areas under your stewardship include:

  • Visibility - search, network analysis, and customer data foundation: You’ll deliver a system for exploring and connecting to a shared knowledge graph of the global supply chain. The Atlas serves as a common operating picture for users across the public and private sectors. The product enables users to find and analyze hundreds of millions of companies, their B2B relationships and activities, and extended networks through advanced search, network analysis, and graph exploration tools. The fusion, modeling, verification/refinement, and visualization of customer data within the global supply chain network is central to situating each of our customers in the common operating picture with other users.
  • AI-driven insights and decision support: You’ll apply the latest artificial intelligence technologies to a massive, globally-unique dataset in combination with customer data. Through models, Altana-generated analytics, and third party analytics overlaid on the supply chain graph, you’ll deliver tailored intelligence across compliance, environmental impacts, sourcing and procurement, security, and business continuity dimensions for a range of users working off of a shared source of truth. You’ll design user interactions that drive model learning loops and compound the intelligence available to users across our platform. Ultimately, you’ll drive decision making with real-world mission impact.
  • Collaborative workflows to take action: You’ll build a user network effect through collaborative workflows that enable users to take action across silos - internally and externally. We connect our users into a supply chain common operating picture with shared intelligence, and deliver collaborative workflows that enable them to take action on that visibility and intelligence, helping them to manage and govern their global, multi-tier value chain networks.

Your Responsibilities

  • In collaboration with product, engineering, and commercial teams, work to develop the overall product strategy, product roadmap, and feature specifications for Altana’s Customer facing UI’s and API’s.
  • Manage three sub-area product managers focused on intelligence/investigative use cases, enterprise supply chains, and trade compliance & shipment screening. Mentor, unify and develop these people to ensure customer alignment while creating a single unified product.
  • Collaborate with product design, engineering, internal subject matter experts, and external customers.
  • Work closely with our commercial team to build out our go-to-market plans and strategies; build a deep understanding of our market trends, partner ecosystem, and competitive landscape.
  • Partner with sales and marketing to manage product launches and product releases.
  • Develop and oversee processes for user and customer research in order to deeply understand customer needs and preferences across our target customer segments: customs agencies, logistics service providers, F500 enterprises, defense and intelligence agencies, and financial service providers.
  • Mature processes for understanding market signal from sales and marketing and incorporating that into our product vision and customer engagements.

About You

  • Significant experience (generally 8+years) as a product manager in a complex enterprise b2b space with multiple stakeholders.
  • Entrepreneurial sense of ownership of the success of the products, with full ownership and accountability of outcomes
  • Demonstrated success identifying commonalities across seemingly disparate user groups, and building transformative experiences.
