Posted on Friday, December 15, 2023

The Product Lead, TSA PreCheck will work closely with Engineering leadership and the Aviation team to define and build core enhancements to enable scale and operational excellence of TSA PreCheck enrollments to millions of travelers nationwide.

You obsess over enabling frictionless travel experiences for customers. You bring a high level of creativity to product management.

  • Drive efficiencies for all customers: TSA, Ambassadors, New and Existing PreCheck Members
  • Contribute to company-level strategic decisions by highlighting current and future state capabilities of the program
  • Become an SME in understanding government requirements processes, why those requirements exist, and how best to solution against them
  • Collaborate with Product Design to map out end-to-end consumer travel journeys
  • Collaborate with Engineering counterparts to ensure delivery of products on time and within budget
  • Represent CLEAR externally with strategic business partners to drive towards a shared product vision

How you'll measure success:

  • Develop success metrics and drive a culture of continuous, data-driven improvements

  • Scale TSA PreCheck Enrollment Provided by CLEAR to millions of travelers nationwide

What you're great at:

  • Bachelor's Degree in a technical field
  • 7+ years of experience in technology product management
  • Proven track record of delivering high-quality, innovative consumer experiences at scale
  • Ability to drive alignment across senior executives, business leads and technical leads

  • Ability to create clarity and drive focus in complex and dynamic contexts
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, including description of technical topics to non-technical audiences
  • Passion for learning new things and driving innovation
  • Obsession with the customer experience
  • You have patience and persistence, knowing not everything will go as planned
