Aviation Product Manager | Canberra, ACT
|Position Type:||Full Time|
|Attachments:||No File Attached|
|Application Close Date:||29-Apr-2019|
Commercial aircraft carried an estimated four billion passengers worldwide in 2017 and, over the next 20 years, the number of commercial aircraft in operation is likely to double. Our world-leading eye and face tracking sensor technology will help the aviation industry maintain and improve safety standards by measuring degraded alertness and attention states.
About the opportunity
The Aviation Product Manager will focus on supporting our first commercial aviation product (and product line), which is designed to support crew training in various simulator environments. This product is due to be launched and released mid-2019.
Reporting to the VP Product & Partnerships, you will own the day-to-day product management, project management and build schedule, and product delivery of our Aviation CTS Product. You will be responsible for product planning, execution and management throughout the entire product lifecycle. This includes gathering and prioritising market, product, and customer requirements – to refine and support the product vision.
As the Aviation Product Manager, you will work closely with colleagues from within the Aviation group, as well as across Seeing Machines to build the CTS product, and ensure a successful CTS product launch and market introduction. These stakeholders will include engineering, sales, marketing and operations (including support).
Furthermore, you will incorporate the commercial goals of our Aviation group in product design planning, to ensure that Product/Market Fit is achieved, and that the CTS product line is designed for long-term profitability and viability.
This is a career opportunity to make your mark in product management. Ideally you will have some experience as a Product Manager, but it isn't essential. Perhaps you are a systems engineer looking to broaden your exposure to the full product management cycle.
We value the breadth and depth of experience that our people bring to their work. We are seeking people with a good mix of technical competency and personal capability.
Specifically, we are looking for people with:
- Demonstrated experience in managing technology-based activities to assist in successfully taking a product concept through the entire product lifecycle,
- Ability to lead and manage product related project and activities with both hardware and software integration requirements
- Excellent written and verbal interpersonal communication skills
- Experience gathering user requirements and business process mapping
- Experience working within, or a keen interest in the aviation industry
How to apply
To apply, please include an updated resume and a cover letter outlining your interest in the role and how you could make a difference at Seeing Machines.
Seeing Machines is a world leader in driver-machine interaction. We harness human factors science to create artificial intelligence (AI) technology that observes the driver's attention – reliably, unobtrusively, and in real time – and intervenes seamlessly when necessary.
Specialised computer vision algorithms underpin Seeing Machines' core camera-based driver monitoring technology. Algorithms allow us to precisely track eye gaze, head position and pupil size while our state-of-the-art AI technology analyses the data to quickly and accurately detect driver drowsiness, distraction and microsleep levels. We work with some of the world's leading brands to deliver this technology, helping keep drivers and operators engaged across commercial transport and logistics, automotive, aviation, rail and mining industries.
The WHY of our technology
• According to the World Health Organisation, over 1.3 million people die in road accidents, globally.
• The American Automobile Association says that 1 in every 10 auto accidents in the US is fatigue related and that 25% of US car accidents are caused by distraction.
• European Commission recommends that camera-based driver monitoring technology be mandated to enhance safety in cars, vans, trucks and buses from 2022.
• Air traffic is set to double over 15 years and the world's aviation fleet is set to double in 20 years. This creates a huge demand for more pilots and air traffic management which increases pressure on training and safety frameworks for the aviation industry, globally.
• Seeing Machines' Guardian technology for commercial fleets has been scientifically proven to reduce fatigue related driver events by more than 90%.
