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.

  • Own and manage goal-setting for your project team, help evaluate success criteria, and facilitate estimation and prioritization 
  • Coordinate sprint kick-off, sprint planning, and grooming exercises
  • Facilitate weekly team meetings and daily stand-ups, and provide regular updates on project status to engineering and business leads
  • Act as an agent of change, continually helping your partners and stakeholders find clarity and reinvent processes as the business scales 

What You'll Need:

  • BA/BS degree or equivalent practical experience
  • 4-6 years experience software project management experience
