Indigo is a high growth innovative agriculture company based in Boston.  We have an extraordinary opportunity to help farmers harness nature to feed the planet in a sustainable manner.  Our biological advancements enable us to work with farmers to improve agriculture in a way that creates enormous economic value while benefiting the environment and providing consumers a more natural food supply. 

As a Senior Technical Product Manager at Indigo you will have the opportunity to collaborate with many teams across the organization.  We believe that understanding our customer’s problems are critical to helping us prioritize features which leads to a strong roadmap.  In this role, you will lead a product line or feature set and be responsible for the overall success of that product.

What does a successful product look like at Indigo?

We can’t make good product decisions without ‘voice of customer’ and it will be your responsibility to make sure we get that.  Both internal and external stakeholders alike.  Products need to bring value and be profitable and you will take a lead role in driving us towards that.  There are many product lines or areas of innovation within the walls of Indigo and the external community.  Part of your job will be to balance between feature enhancements for existing customers, alongside internal and external innovative integrations.  In other words, we don’t have to build everything ourselves!

How do we work?

We are not perfect. In fact, we are learning through trial and error every day.  We try new things, take risks, make educated guesses and move quickly.  Excellent communication and collaboration skills are a must.
