Product Manager

Information Services

Are you ready to join a company that delivers big data to the maritime world and all those connected to it? This is an incredibly exciting time for an experienced Product Manager to join a well-established but rapidly expanding team

Our client is a global operation driven by our mission to bring transparency to shipping, transforming data, information and expertise into actionable analytics, insight and perspective that create value for customers.
