The Skydio team combines deep expertise in artificial intelligence, best-in- class hardware and software product development, and operational excellence to empower a broader, more diverse audience of drone users - from action sports enthusiasts to first responders to insurance claims adjusters.

About the role: By combining best-in-class autonomy and cloud connectivity, drones will become critical and ubiquitous infrastructure that can be deployed and monitored in real-time to solve a variety of problems faster, cheaper, and safer than ever before. As a Product Operations Manager, you will play a key role on Skydio's Product team across a range of strategic and operational responsibilities.

  • Crafting onboarding content
  • Preparing vehicles and accessories as needed
  • Inviting and onboarding new customers
  • Managing regular updates and communications with customers
  • Systematically gathering, analyzing and relaying customer feedback to the product development team
  • This role will also entail other key responsibilities to improve the product development process in general at Skydio, including:

  • Systematically analyzing product usage data
  • Formalizing feedback collection from different internal and external channels
  • Creating and/or streamlining operational best practices within and involving the Product team -- e.g., driving internal “dogfooding” programs to collect product feedback
  • What you can expect in this role:

  • Ownership and accountability for the success of Skydio's Early Access programs
  • Direct engagement with a broad range of customers, prospects, and internal stakeholders
  • Gaining deep familiarity with Skydio's products
  • Working with (and improving) systems and processes to capture and relay product feedback back to product development teams
  • Close collaboration with sales and customer success to build and maintain close customer relationships and ensure success
  • What would make you a good fit:

  • Three to five years of proven success in a similar role, driving successful operational programs within product development and/or customer success organizations
  • Specific experience running beta/early access programs
  • Detail-oriented with exceptional written and oral communication skills
  • Dedicated team player who strives to enable others to do their best work
  • A passion for speaking with — and learning from — customers
  • Familiar with business systems and tools (e.g., JIRA, Zendesk, Confluence, Salesforce)
  • Experience with data visualization tools (e.g., Tableau)
  • Extensive drone/UAV experience and/or a passion for drones
  • At Skydio we believe that diversity drives innovation. We have created a multidisciplinary environment that embraces the power of diverse perspectives to create elegant solutions for complex problems.
