This role is an extremely rare opportunity to participate from the ground-up in establishing a start-up within a recently designated “unicorn” private company. The original founding business and technical teams from Trax and Quri (acquired by Trax in 2018) have been asked by Trax’s executive leadership to create an entirely new business within Trax that ultimately will enable our customers to make real-time merchandising decisions at physical retail stores globally. The solution will uniquely combine technology and marketplace innovations such as AI/ML, computer vision, AR and new labor/workforce innovations.
Streamlining retail labor is the final piece in the $1 trillion global value equation between brands, retailers, and shoppers, and we believe strongly that Trax is in a unique place to leverage our market-leading position and core competitive advantages to build our next big business. We expect to grow quickly.
As background, Trax is the world leader in computer vision solutions for retail. We offer best-in-class in-store execution tools, market measurement services, and data science solutions that are fundamentally transforming how in-store retail data is being collected, viewed, and analyzed. With Trax, consumer goods manufacturers and retailers can improve product availability, reduce distribution gaps, identify category opportunities and increase their sales immediately.
Trax has been chosen globally as a strategic partner by over 175 clients in over 50 countries. Some of the world's top brands such as Coca-Cola, AB InBev, Nestle, Henkel and P&G among others leverage Trax globally to increase efficiency and business growth.
The Sr. Product Manager develops merchandising solutions for Trax customers. This includes but is not limited to managing the entire product lifecycle (including collecting and analyzing product requirements internally and conducting discovery with target customer base); defining functional specifications; developing and managing timelines; completing competitive analysis; building pricing models; and tracking development, QA processes, and adoption across the customer. The role works side-by-side with other teams within Trax, including the Engineering, UX/UI, and Operations groups. Overall, the Sr. Product Manager translates user and business needs into products that enable Trax to fulfill its mission to enable the future of how work is done at physical retail.
Generally, the Sr. Product Manager also works to establish a shared vision for Trax’s merchandising solution across the company, builds consensus, and monitors product health and usage to react to customers' wants and needs to provide the best product possible.
