VP Product | Miros Mocean | Oslo

Work with technology that will change an industry!

Do you want a unique opportunity to build and scale an ambitious startup which is made of the combined expertise of Miros, BW Group and Copenhagen Commercial Platform?

Miros Mocean is a result of exactly this. The platform is centered around digital sea state data, providing accurate, real-time vessel performance insights to improve in-service vessel performance optimization, charter party performance and fuel efficiency. The key to our product is to offer solutions to specific problems, not just data!



Globally there is a significant push to decarbonize the shipping industry and a clear sense of urgency to act now. Therefore, Miros Mocean is accelerating its development and entering a new phase with ambitions of international growth.

To tackle the challenges ahead we are looking for a VP Product to help reach our goals. Therefore, we need to find a dedicated and enthusiastic person to drive our product roadmap, take an active part in developing our position in the market and accelerate our growth. This role will report directly to the CEO.

In this new company, you will have the freedom and opportunity to shape the company and the role thereafter. You will lead the product strategy to position Miros Mocean as a leading provider of data and vessel performance insights to ship owners, operators and charterers. You will be part of safeguarding the tech and the continuous development of the product.

Main responsibilities:

Why is this a unique opportunity?

This is a new role in a startup and you will have significant freedom to shape its future, furthermore your own role. Miros Mocean is being built from scratch, but with the help of three experienced and well-established owners.

You will be joining an international team who shares a passion for the ocean, digitalisation, and supporting maritime operations worldwide. You will be working with a product that will become an important stepping stone in the global push towards decarbonising and a more sustainable maritime industry. Miros Mocean offers a competitive salary and incentive scheme.
