Job Profile

This role is a fantastic opportunity for a Product Manager with agile software development experience to steer Vista Global Flight Operations, worldwide and maximize the effectiveness and efficiencies of our systems and processes that drive our air mobility services. The successful candidate will join our Vista Tech Team, reporting into the Senior Director of Product - Flight Operations.


Vista Global is building the future of private air travel so the world can experience aviation as it was meant to be. There was a time when we waited in long lines, removed our shoes, and shuffled through crowded security checkpoints. We settled for search engines, commoditization, and a plethora of apps. Meanwhile, thousands of private jets sat on runways and in hangars depreciating in value, and 40% of the private planes in the sky were flying empty. No-one stopped to ask if there wasn’t a better way.
