Engineering

Background

Based in London, MachineMax is an award winning and dynamic tech start up aiming to disrupt the construction and mining industries with our leading digital services and solutions, helping them reduce cost, improve productivity and become more sustainable by reducing emissions.

Our vision? Enhance human capabilities to help make a better future. How do we get there? We see the big picture, we keep it simple, we empower decision making, we surface the invisible, we think unconventionally. And of course, a high performance team working creatively and collaboratively together.

The role:

We are looking for an eager and ambitious Product Manager to join us in a fast growing team. You’ll be responsible for the product thinking behind our data science capabilities. Not only does this include the machine learning required to predict activity states but also looking at how we can use ML for predictive usage models, and to build out insights. As we scale there will be greater considerations around how we process and store data, which will be a key consideration for the person in this role too. This is heavily linked to our platform, so you’ll work very closely with product, UX and engineering in those areas.

With your entrepreneurial spirit and pragmatic approach, you’ll quickly develop a deep understanding of the market landscape, uncover and size areas of opportunity, develop our product strategy, and drive the product from concept to reality. The key will be ensuring adoption and frequent use of the data available to the customers, minimising churn. You’ll be fully autonomous and pushed to make critical business decisions with your team as well as managing the day to day; writing user stories and prioritising the backlog, and owning the value and business viability for your area of the productm within the team.

hand

capabilities

required to enable effective, safe, and reliable processing of data
