- Here's what you will do AND learn to be successful in this role
In a world where trades are happening faster than ever to answer our needs, where sustainability is not just an option anymore, clarity and trust in the information we trade with are a must.
So, say hello to Kpler! We exist to facilitate sustainable and efficient trade to meet the changing needs of our world. To do so we’ve built a Data-as-a-Service solution that does exactly that across the lifecycle of a trade.
Our solution aggregates data from hundreds of sources including radar and satellite imagery as well as logistics, governmental, shipping databases and more. Intelligently connecting the dots across fragmented information landscapes, we bring to our clients a unique, real-time understanding of the trades happening all over the world, by giving them access to live information about the movement of cargos, the availability of vessels as well as the commodity storage.
To support this endeavor we have teams in more than 7 countries and 8 key locations (Brussels, Paris, London, Vienna, Dubai, Singapore, Houston and New York). With individuals of various backgrounds, diverse skills, and international experiences, being global & inclusive is in our DNA!
What you will do
Kpler’s Inventories team is owning one of our key products - storage of commodities.
The Inventories team goal is to unveil the hidden. Through a combination of drone data, satellite images, and external sources, coupled with a layer of machine learning, we provide users global coverage of how much liquid is stored in which tank & underground facility, as well as who owns it. The team delivers both the final information as well as the means to map, ingest, and process the images & data sources.
As a Product Manager for our Inventories team, you will be at the central point between Technology, Business and Design. As such, you will create and own the roadmap, working hand-in-hand with the Tech Lead and the developers of the team. Your focus will be, among others, to maintain high-level standards for the maturing Inventories product as well as to find and bring to life new opportunities.
