Portchain: On a mission to solve the hardest problems in container shipping

The container shipping industry is the backbone of global trade, with 90% of all goods being transported by a container. The industry is, however, fundamentally inefficient: 50% of all container vessels are delayed coming into port, and fundamental planning processes are done manually in basic tools and spreadsheets.

The role

Portchain is looking for a Senior Product Manager to help us reshape the world of maritime container shipping. We consider ‘Inspired’ by Marty Cagan a guideline for what good product management is (but not the only) - if you agree, you will be an essential part of establishing the product-driven culture.

The challenges the container industry faces are enormous and have a worldwide impact, so if you are looking to solve the most significant problems, we have them lined up and ready to be worked on!

As a member of Product, you will, together with your team, take ownership of one of our core areas and make sure that the value offering continues to meet the needs of our users.

Having a strong sense of discovery and turning that into knowledge and insights that can help form our path is pivotal to our success. You will not be doing that alone, as you will be joining a fully cross-functional team to make sure you can act autonomously throughout all the steps.

The company is keenly focused on talking about Why and not What when it comes to framing what we want to solve, so you will also play a key role in ensuring we have an outcome-focused approach to our goals.

Some of what you will be doing

  • Maintain and evolve a product vision for your domain
  • Have a deep understanding of the relevant user segments
  • Close collaboration with your Design and Engineering colleagues
  • External and internal stakeholder management
  • A good grasp of the relevant problems to solve
  • Establishing success criteria and defining ways to measure them
  • A steady flow of product information to the rest of the company
  • And all the other parts of what a PM does


Some points about you

  • Around four years or more of Product Manager experience working with one or more products
  • Experience with engaging with users and customers
  • Strong communication skills, both written and verbally
  • A professional passion for finding good problems to solve
  • Facilitating and empowering your team is second nature to you

Bonus points for

  • Experience with B2B and SaaS solutions
  • Experience from a start-up or scale-up
  • Container shipping or maritime experience
