Senior Technical Product Manager

Who we are


ACME Technologies is a highly customizable software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform for museums, zoos, aquariums, gardens, and other cultural destinations, with solutions to create a seamless visitor experience for some of the leading cultural attractions in the United States and beyond.


The ACME platform is API driven, offering our venues limitless design possibilities and connections with third party tools. The product suite includes a white-label eCommerce site, Point of Sale (POS) and Access Control apps, hardware integration, back office administration app, CRM integrations, and more. The core ticketing and membership applications are powered by ACME Pay, a payment infrastructure that can be used by any SaaS company seeking to monetize payments.


Our back end infrastructure is modern, elastic and based on the latest java micro services architectures and modern REST API principles. The challenges are great to keep our infrastructure reliable, secure, with high uptime and high performance as we process the main integrated payment use cases for our app layer and external API clients. If you like great engineering challenges, it’s hard to find better; we do deep technology.


At ACME, we’re passionate about culture and scalable technology. Given we build mission critical systems, we take pride in a low key, solution oriented company that deals with problems productively. Everybody is part of the solution. There is never a shortage of interesting problems to solve, interesting people to meet, and product complexities to master.
