Your role in helping us shape the future:

You will work with internal and external stakeholders to enhance Intelsat Inflight offerings, delivering value for airlines and strengthening our partnerships with aerospace OEMs and third parties.

The Product Manager is a member of the Product Management organization. As a Product Manager, you will be part of a highly collaborative, cross-functional Agile team that delivers against overall Intelsat Inflight business goals and product vision. Utilizing Agile / SAFe methodology, the Product Manager will collaborate closely with Product Managers, other Product Managers, Account Management, Development, UX Designers, Systems Engineering/Architecture, Quality Assurance, Dev Ops, and other key stakeholders and represent the team in various SAFe rituals. The Product Manager serves as the voice of the customer to the team and is seen as a leader within the team, and the organization as a whole.


As a Product Manager, you will be responsible for the end to end process and delivery of related features and commitments, on behalf of your Agile team(s).


  • With input from System Architect/Engineering/Software Development and other stakeholders, the Product Manager has the primary responsibility for building, editing, and maintaining the Team Backlog in order to iteratively deliver software and maximize the value of the products created by the team.
  • Product Managers also contribute to the Program Backlog by partnering with Product Managers for development of an epic and contributing to the organization’s vision and roadmap.

  • During execution, the Product Manager will attend regular Agile team meetings including daily standups, backlog grooming, sprint planning and retrospectives. At grooming sessions, the Product Manager will vertically slice features into user stories so that the team can deliver value incrementally.
  • The Product Manager approves story and feature completion. This includes validating that the stories meet the feature acceptance criteria, ensuring the appropriate level of automated testing has been created, and that the feature achieves the Definition of Done (DoD).

Are you up to the challenge?

  • The Product Manager acts as a servant leader, promoting continuous improvement with the Agile team and the organization.


  • The Product Manager motivates the team to deliver high-quality software by enabling continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) practices.
