Dagens is an Oslo-based food tech startup building the platform for a transparent and resilient food system, making direct trade of local, sustainably produced food easy. We already delivering to all top restaurants and canteens in Oslo and Trondheim and have just launched in Copenhagen. Our strongest asset is our amazing team of passionate and dedicated designers, developers, and product people dedicated to challenging the status quo of a food system that is ripe for disruption. We have a modern tech stack and use product management tools such as OKRs and retros to help guide our focus.
The team consists of 17 value- and mission-driven individuals 9 nationalities and we are proud to have (nearly) reached 50/50 gender balance, which is far beyond average in tech. Maintaining an inclusive, empowering, caring and open-minded culture is our top priority.Dagens is currently live in Oslo, Trondheim, and Copenhagen. We just raised a seed round and are now rigging our platform and the organization to scale into Europe.
As a product manager in Dagens you will be responsible for a specific product area in Dagens - shaping our product strategy for that area, as well as the road of how to get there. You tie all the pieces together - the user feedback and insights, the technical constraints, the needs for cleaning up technical debt as we go, and the market trends - and you prioritize and set the direction for the product team efforts based on it. You will work closely with our developers and designers, defining the product priorities and what to build, and supporting them as they figure out how. You will be able to solve and crack loads of interesting challenges, directly impacting the lives of local farmers and chefs.
The Product team has become ninjas in collaborating online so it is up to you if you want to sit at the Oslo office or the Copenhagen office. If you will be sitting at the Copenhagen office, we want you to be willing to travel to Oslo once in a while, as we still believe the magic of meeting face to face cannot fully be replaced by remote work.
