We're Celonis, the global leader in Process Mining technology and one of the world's fastest-growing SaaS firms. We believe there is a massive opportunity to unlock productivity by placing data and intelligence at the core of business processes - and for that, we need you to join us.

The Team:

We are the Developer Platform team, a group of product enthusiasts who are passionate about pushing the boundaries of the current status quo. The Developer Platform enables any developer to build top-notch applications and integrations that contribute to business success using Celonis Process Intelligence Graph. We foster an environment where developers can easily create, innovate, experiment, and distribute their applications or integrations while having access to the latest tools and technologies.

The Role:

We are looking for an experienced Principal Product Manager to join our rapidly growing product and engineering organization. 

As Principal Product Manager, you will be responsible for defining the platform vision and strategy for our API portfolio. You will collaborate with product, engineering, and go-to-market leaders across Celonis to lead various impactful initiatives. Your extensive knowledge of enterprise API platforms and empathy for developers will be instrumental in fostering internal alignment and delivering a seamless developer experience.

The work you’ll do:

  • Drive the strategic direction of our API portfolio for customers and partners - define the vision and build and execute a roadmap aligned with business goals.
  • Collaborate closely with engineering to translate the strategy into actionable plans and successfully bring the product to market.
  • Drive buy-in and alignment across the organization for the product strategy and vision, ensuring that all stakeholders understand and support the direction.
  • Work directly with customers and the go-to-market organization to deeply understand customer needs and identify opportunities to enhance the product, focusing on delivering the highest possible customer and partner value.
  • Serve as the subject matter expert and evangelist for the Developer Platform, championing its features, benefits, and value proposition both internally and externally.
  • Establishing partnerships to foster innovation, drive adoption, and evangelize our API offerings.
  • Monitor key product metrics and performance indicators, and use data-driven insights to inform decision-making and drive continuous improvement.

The qualifications you need:

  • 8+ years in product management. 3+ in an API-first and/or developer-centric business or working in a technology-heavy role, including crafting the vision and strategy for the APIs you built.
  • Proven experience with platform architectures and client/service experiences.
  • A passion for working with developers, learning about new technologies, and evangelizing exciting developer tools.
  • Excited about providing clarity in the face of ambiguity and working in a dynamic environment that comes with being part of an innovative hyper-growth company
  • Confidence to participate in very technical discussions and to push back on engineering and others when appropriate; the ability to drive consensus and commit even when all parties don’t agree
  • An analytical or technical background along with a passion for all things data. Experience measuring the impact of platform work, identifying sub-optimal decisions, and pivoting when necessary
  • Success in communicating upward and outward about the bigger picture, trade-offs, and delivery timelines
  • Outstanding written and verbal communication skills. Fluent English is essential

  • The unique opportunity to work with industry-leading process mining technology
  • Investment in your personal growth and skill development (clear career paths, internal mobility opportunities, L&D platform, mentorships, and more)
  • Great compensation and benefits packages (equity (restricted stock units), life insurance, time off, generous leave for new parents from day one, and more). For intern and working student benefits, click here.
