Everything happens somewhere - which is why spatial analytics is fundamental to companies seeking to understand the “where” and the “why” of their business. CARTO is the leading cloud-native location intelligence platform, trusted by data scientists, data analysts, and developers from companies such as Vodafone, IKEA, Decathlon, Coca-Cola, and Mastercard to provide geospatial insights for use cases such as site selection, geomarketing, route optimization, network planning and much more.
With an exceptionally diverse team of 170 people spread across the US and Europe, CARTO (backed by Insight Partners, Accel Partners, and Salesforce Ventures) is changing how companies analyze location data, simplifying how it is done by leveraging modern cloud data warehouses. Redefining its category, the company has grown rapidly in recent years providing a compelling alternative to legacy GIS software.
Many of our customers use CARTO to add interactive maps and spatial analysis insights to their web applications and products. We provide a set of APIs and libraries that allow developers to visualize large amounts of data on such maps and perform spatial analyses at scale. Thousands of developers use our products and we serve billions of requests per day.
To continue this growth, the Product team is looking for a talented, experienced and customer-focused Product Manager, with previous experience managing B2B SaaS products for the large enterprise sector, to help us craft the best product for our customers and to keep modernizing the geospatial industry with our technology.
Our Product team advocates for our users and our business, setting the vision for our growing family of products. We use data, research, strategy, and empathy to guide multidisciplinary teams toward a common goal, balancing diverse perspectives and empowering our teams to do great work.
The preference for this position is to be working from our offices in Madrid or Seville, with flexibility for hybrid remote work. We are open to considering full remote candidates too. This position will be reporting to our VP of Product.
