About Wing:

Wing is reshaping the future of delivery. We are an on-demand drone delivery service that can deliver food, medicine or other items within minutes. We’ve also developed an unmanned traffic management platform to safely route drones through the sky. Our service is faster, safer and produces far less pollution than traditional delivery. Originally created in 2012 within X, the Moonshot Factory, Wing is now an Alphabet company.

About the Role:

Are you a creative, results-oriented self-starter? Are you passionate about creating best-in-class customer experiences? Are you driven by a relentless need to meet deadlines and consider shipping a product to market a feature? If you answered “yes” to these questions, this may be the role for you!

Wing is looking for Operational Program Managers to join our Manufacturing team. The ideal candidate has a passion for bringing complex designs into production and demonstrated knowledge of the ability to deliver results as part of a dynamic, cross-functional team. Execution against challenging timelines with laser focus on most critical needs is paramount.

  • Implement and/or improve engineering processes and workflows to increase efficiencies, minimize disruptions and maximize potential while balancing rigor with agility
  • Work with other TPMs, Technical Leads (TL) and Product Managers (PM) to collaborate and identify solutions to business objectives while maintaining realistic timelines and achieving predictable outcomes

  • Passion for product excellence, depth of technical knowledge and ability to find creative solutions as demonstrated through bringing new complex products to production
  • Collaborative team player and creative thinker, ability to adapt to different working styles, changing priorities and unforeseen challenges in a positive and productive way
  • Masters / BS Degree in Electrical, Mechanical or related technical discipline
  • Overall 10+ years of working experience. Ideally in high volume high quality manufacturing
  • Experience dealing with ambiguity within Wing
  • Technical skill-set to work well with cross functional management teams and can stand your ground to push back on non-manufacturable scenarios

  • Record of technical excellence and interaction with vendors
  • Fluent English with excellent written communication, management presentation skills, and ability to comprehend and articulate complex technical issues and impacts to supply
