Over Verra Mobility
Verra Mobility is a global leader in smart and customized mobility technology, making transportation safer, smarter, and more connected. The NASDAQ-traded company provides clients such as fleet operators and municipalities with road safety and driver behavior services, including fine collection, photo enforcement technology, and tolling. Their intercontinental presence in more than fifteen countries and extensive partnerships with leading toll authorities, rental car companies like Hertz and Sixt, and municipalities position them as a recognized leader in the smart and shared mobility space.
Verra Mobility’s unique value proposition is to work directly with its customers, to identify their needs and nimbly solve their mobility challenges. With cross-functional teams, Verra Mobility delivers end-to-end solutions that give results, improve efficiency, and increase safety. The company adheres to four core values: Own it, Do what’s right, Lead with grace, and Winning together.
Originally active in the US, Verra Mobility has gained a significant presence in Europe, through organic and inorganic growth. While the company is working to launch new products in the region, the current revenue in the European market is mainly driven by their enforcement services. In this domain, Verra Mobility is a market leader, supporting over 300 leading public and private issuing authorities with cross-border enforcement of traffic fines and fees. Whether it is tracking and collecting parking tickets and fees on behalf of municipalities and parking companies, assisting road toll operators to identify and issue invoices or penalties, or supporting local authorities to control and manage the flow of traffic and price congestion – the enforcement platform allows municipalities and private organizations to easily collect their due, making cities cleaner and roads safer in the process.
Vacancy: Product Manager
The Product Manager directs all tactical aspects of defining detailed product requirements and building the future product roadmap of the enforcement platform. They contribute to the product vision and strategy based on their own data analysis, market research, and collaboration with internal and external stakeholders. They identify key solution gaps and growth or improvement opportunities and advise on strategies to capitalize on opportunities in the different countries where the platform is rolled out. Taking a strategic overview of the product and the markets as a jumping-off point, they incorporate new product features on an ongoing basis. They work closely with the Commercial and Marketing teams to ensure proper sales enablement. The Product Manager reports to and works together with the Director of Product Management, who has P&L responsibility over the product.
This is a role for an early-career Product Manager, who nonetheless possesses strong business and commercial insight. They have an analytical spike and are able to reason from a UX point of view. The Product Manager quickly learns to understand what drives client decision-making and how to anticipate or respond to the needs of private and governmental clients. The Product Manager cascades product changes internally and externally. They support the coordination of cross-functional teams, with dedicated developers, product owners, and scrum masters.
“Parking fees, road tolls, traffic tickets, and congestion charges: all measures that support a cleaner and safer environment. Our clients include Transport for London, where we help collect vehicle pollution tax. Considering the nearly twenty billion vehicle miles driven in London on a yearly basis, this is not a minor topic. The Product Manager directly and visibly contributes to cleaner air and a more sustainable and fair traffic landscape.” – Oscar Mellegers, Director of Product Management Europe
