Canvass AI – Disrupting how Industrials Improve Global Productivity and Sustainability

Do you want to make a positive impact on the world?

Canvass AI is disrupting the manufacturing and industrial sector by making the hype of AI a reality. Our AI platform is fast becoming the most in-demand solution on the market because we put the power of AI in the hands of industrial engineers, who can now unleash the value in their data in ways they’ve never been able to before! We are helping the world’s largest companies drive impactful results, almost instantly, from improving their productivity to spearheading their global sustainability efforts. Our software and customer deployments prove each day that AI is revolutionizing how manufacturers reduce carbon emissions, waste, water, and energy consumption.

Proudly funded by Alphabet’s Gradient Ventures and Yamaha Motor Ventures. Join us on the quest to build a more sustainable and productive future!


Reporting to the Director of Product Management, the Product Manager’s role is to define where our Industrial AI platform needs to go by creating a roadmap about what needs to get built and communicating those needs to our engineering team. The Product Manager will be responsible for full life cycle product management and overall positioning of the platform for commercial success including supporting the sales team and marketing team with their efforts.

  1. Support Canvass AI’s overall growth strategy in terms of securing more customers and greater revenue by creating and defining the future direction for our Industrial AI platform including plans, tangible visions, and roadmaps to get there. Additional responsibility includes ensuring full adoption and usage of the Canvass platform, post purchase.
  2. Lead the development of future releases of the platform by working with product designers and software engineers. Specifically, the product manager will be responsible for defining the specifications of new capabilities to be built, ensuring those specifications are communicated to and understood by product designers and software engineers, and guiding the software development process.
  3. Become and be recognized as an internal expert on the Canvass AI platform. Demonstrate leadership by providing training and information on specific products such as: “how to talk about the product”, “how to position the product” and be able to demo the product and share information about its application and use in industry in easy-to-understand terms.
