Product Manager - Driver Programs

About us

WeaveGrid builds software to make it cheaper and safer for utilities to serve electric vehicles, add renewable energy resources, and save customers money. Our mission is to drive rapid decarbonization in the global transport and power sectors by intelligently connecting electric vehicles to the grid.

We are currently in market with early utility clients, and we must rapidly build and deliver product improvements to serve existing customers and win new deals from our deep pipeline. As a rapidly growing company, we are building a thoughtful, capable team that can adapt with our rapidly evolving circumstances.

Industry context

We are living through historic changes in the ways people use transportation — a sector that is now one of the largest and fastest-growing sources of greenhouse gas emissions.

Electric vehicle (EV) sales are growing at over 60% a year, with vehicle manufacturers spending billions to get ready for an electric future. Boston Consulting Group estimates EVs will account for over half of all vehicle sales by 2030. Electric utilities see massive opportunities in this transformation, as the rise of EVs could drive more growth in energy demand over the next 10 years than any decade since the 1950s.  

‍Larger EV fleets can also help support renewable energy sources on the grid. But to accommodate growth in EVs, utilities will need to make substantial investments in infrastructure and technology. Weave Grid's software helps meet the challenge of our transition to electrified transport.

Culture and mission

Beyond your core skills and track record, you are someone who will expand the culture and cumulative wisdom of the team as a whole. This can take many forms - relevant past projects, hard-won perspective from personal history, an unusual or adjacent skillset, a motivating passion, and so on. We are whole individuals, not just functional role-fillers, and we value everything that you can bring to the team.

Finally, you should be strongly motivated by Weave Grid’s mission. Energy and transportation expertise are not necessary, but it is important that you are passionate about tackling the climate crisis head on, by improving societal and environmental health.

Compensation and location

We are looking to fill this position as soon as possible. Compensation will include competitive salary, equity, and benefits. Weave Grid is based in San Francisco but is open to considering remote candidates in the US for some roles.

About the role

WeaveGrid clients include several of the biggest utilities in the country. We unlock value for these clients by helping their EV-driving customers connect their vehicles to our application through a simple three-step registration process. Once connected, we shape their vehicles’ charging patterns to solve multibillion-dollar challenges posed by the rise of EVs.  

Stepping into the product manager role, you’ll guide the roadmap for driver-facing product initiatives, helping delight our connected drivers and guiding their behavior to create massive value for our utility clients.

You’ll be responsible for shipping features that are essential to our success and generating driver metrics that thrill our utility clients and regulators - helping them embrace programs that are essential to a future low-carbon electric grid.

By your side, you’ll have incredible, committed colleagues in UX, engineering, marketing, analytics, support and utility client success, all pushing to make EV ownership easy, cheap and rewarding for drivers across the US.

Core Responsibilities

  • Launch features that demonstrably delight EV drivers in utility programs
  • Deeply explore EV driver needs and frustrations through user and market research 
  • Drive your roadmap while making hard decisions on what needs to get built, what doesn’t, and when
  • Maintain  clear lines of communication with stakeholders across the company, having frequent, candid conversations about priorities and constraints
  • Build an engine for collecting driver satisfaction and charge behavior insights from our programs that get utilities, regulators, and internal stakeholders excited
  • Set, communicate and achieve product goals that most effectively move the company toward strategic success
  • Incorporate a complex set of cross-team objectives, inputs and technical considerations in defining a roadmap that balances immediate delivery needs with critical investments in long-term capabilities

About you

You’re an experienced consumer technology product manager with a track record of bringing new software to life, inspired by deeply felt user needs. 

You chart your course toward a thoughtful product vision by developing clear metrics for success and constant reflection on the impact of decisions you make.

You’ve demonstrated your ability to engage with a wide variety of stakeholders and prudently incorporate their input, while coordinating to ship meaningful features at a rapid pace.

You have well-tuned intuition about how to make trade-offs around release timing and future commitments, knowing when something is good enough and when it needs to be immaculate.

Most of all, you’re ready to step up to a big, blank canvas and draw on your unique experience to scale a business that can meaningfully reduce global climate risk.
