    • Location: This is a remote role, but the candidate is expected to travel at least 6 times per year to the Bay Area.

About You:

    • 10+ years experience as a technical leader and/or Product Manager with experience dealing directly with hardware or firmware product development. (e.g. consumer electronics, vehicles, IoT devices, OS development, etc…)
    • Passionate. Not only about Lime's mission and micromobility, but passionately focused on the vehicles and solutions that we build in our space
    • Empathetic. Demonstrated ability to understand your customer, their experiences, and have a process for doing soIntellectually honest. You recognize that you can only solve problems you’re willing to call out
    • Owner’s mindset. You're a self-starter and get things across the finish line. You identify the most important challenges and tackle them.
    • Insight-led, and data optimized. You recognize great insights come from customer empathy. They’re then optimized and refined by looking at data. You’re comfortable with using data as a way of looking at a problem, and you’re confident in your ability to pull your own data to analyze a problem
    • Drives Clarity. You are comfortable with ambiguity and are able to bring Clarity and drive decisions. You are able to set direction, when we may not even know what the problem is before starting. You look around corners and address challenges before they arise
    • Operate at all levels. You are able to drive decision making with our C-suite at one moment, and then dive deep with technical teams in the next to understand a root cause, or review a test plan.
The anticipated salary range for this position is $144.000.00 - $241,000.00. Equity and benefits may be provided as part of the compensation package, depending on the position offered.
