About Greywing

Greywing is a digital platform that tracks ships and optimises everything that gets on or off.

We connect hundreds of public and private data sources - like satellite tracking, crew and fuel reports, GDS, and port restrictions - to provide immediately actionable intelligence on vessel operations.

Our efforts are currently focused on making crew changes cheaper and faster, and in making sure the thousands of men and women who keep our economies functional get home safely to their loved ones.

We work with two of the largest ship operators globally to digitize their operations. They give us the real life experience to automate their businesses and our vision is to deploy the same techniques to the long tail, creating a single operational platform for shipping.

About the role

Greywing Product Manager - a 5 minute Loom from our CEO & Co-founder, Nick Clarke

Work directly with the CEO and CTO to manage the development of a product in the nascent maritime technology space.

You will have the opportunity to manage and lead the product development that will lay the foundation for maritime software for the next ten years.

This is the right job if you like exploring things that have never existed before, are excited by new challenges and understand that products live and die on the user experience.

If successful, you will help decide the future of Greywing, as well as lay the roadmap for all future development of the interface.

What do we need you to do?

What we do is simple to explain and hard to execute. Greywing automates everything that gets on or off a vessel, excluding cargo. Right now we are focused on Crew Changes.

We need you to drive product development to keep the product developing towards increasing automation for our users in a way that manages all of the stakeholders interests.

You will be comfortable interacting with our Users, Crew Managers and other platform participants - understanding their concerns and problems. You'll be happy reviewing user interviews and turning their insights on pain points into actionable outcomes for the Customer Success, Sales and Development Team.

We expect you to be the Lead for product so you'll have to make this happen, lay out your framework of how you want to execute and ensure that you can build rapport, relationships and secure buy in from all of your Team Members (Us!).

Shipping is about to pop as a laggard industry in the adoption of technology. Working with Greywing you get to be at the forefront of the digitisation of one of the few remaining trillion dollar industries.

Who are we?

Greywing is a maritime intelligence tool that enables ship managers to conduct operations and save thousands of dollars by providing actionable insight into the decisions they make. Simply put, we process hundreds of thousands of points of information about a vessel to tell them where it should go and what it should do.

We are backed by the people at Y Combinator, Instacart and Flexport. We work with the world's largest ship managers and operators to make the global shipping network more efficient while protecting the people who make sure our world runs smoothly.

In the past year, we've conducted charter flight operations for vessels calling at Singapore, helped evacuate wounded crew that would not have been possible otherwise, and saved hundreds of thousands of dollars in wasted fuel and resources.

For the insatiably curious, you may find more information on our blog or our CTO's Writing.

Why we need you

Maritime software is still in its infancy. Do a quick Google and you'll see that interfaces look like they were designed on FrontPage in 2008 - and this is the state across the ecosystem. Decisions that govern millions of dollars in cargo and hundreds of thousands of tons of iron and steel are made through excel sheets, email, and pencil and paper. We have a rare opportunity to lay down how maritime will interact digitally for the next decade, if we get this right.

The Team

Our CEO is a former Royal Marine Commando that has built a business in maritime from nothing to 4 million in turnover.

Our CTO has published multiple papers across technology, from Formal verification in cryptocurrencies, human-computer interaction, embedded glucose monitoring to baseline optimization in chemistry and physics. He has also built software and hardware serving hundreds of thousands of users across southeast Asia, in fintech, insurtech, robotics, for companies like National Geographic, Ethereum, and SGX.

Our Stack

Backend: NodeJS, Express, Postgres, Redis

Frontend: PlainJS, Bootstrap (migrating to React or Vue)

Details

Full time role, fully remote if outside Singapore. Payment and salaries are compatible with Gitlab's compensation calculator, with competitive equity.

If you're interested, please reach out to jointheteam @ grey-wing.com with a short Loom video answering the following questions (or any you'd like):

  1. What should we know about you? Background, capabilities, what you think your strengths are.
  2. What interests you about us?
  3. Tell us a little about the most memorable project you've worked on. What were the hardest parts? What were the best moments?
Technology

Greywing currently has a state-of-the-art vessel routing tool, as well as the industry's first structured data collection tools for state actor and vessel data - both public and private.

Our first priority is human-augmentation, by using intelligent path-finding algorithms to navigate this data to provide actionable intelligence to vessel operators.
