Our team of product managers advocates for our customers and our business, setting the vision for the future of retail. We use data, research, strategy, and empathy to guide our digital roadmap, balancing diverse perspectives and empowering our teams to do great work.
We take projects from idea to rollout and take ownership of every step of the process.

The future of retail employs advanced technologies such as computer vision and machine learning to transform the customer experience and dramatically change the cost structure by getting rid of checkout and automating common tasks such as restocking. At Valora we want to be at the forefront of such developments and want to move from concept to successful pilot and widespread rollout as fast as technology allows and the business case makes sense. As a Product Manager in the Autonomous Stores vertical you will be responsible to bring products from the piloting phase to scaled roll-out and drive the development of new products and features. In other words, you will play an essential role in making the future of retail happen.
