Product Manager

A Product Manager for the Raster Foundry Team helps build cloud native geospatial products for our customers. Product development is a collaborative effort between engineering, design, and customer-facing teams. You’ll join a dedicated product team with a successful track record of delivering web-based geospatial and machine learning applications to a wide variety of organizations.

The Raster Foundry product team develops everything from our core platform API, specialized machine learning applications, use-case specific mini-applications, and backend analytics workflows responsible for processing terabytes of imagery.

If you are passionate about making geospatial processing on the web more accessible to others, and excited to work on a supportive team in a fast-growing environment, we want to meet you!
