- Build and maintain a roadmap to delight our users while growing the business
- Integrate usability studies, user research, market analysis and community feedback into product requirements to ensure the product satisfies user needs as well as wants while informing product decisions with quantitative data on user behavior and experimentation
- Define methods and metrics for measuring success and failure while ensuring the team is clear on their objectives, and constantly track performance
- Coordinate with other product managers, designers, and engineers to ensure a cohesive overall user experience.
What we're looking for:
- 7+ years of product management experience, ideally in SaaS and / or packaged software
- Deep understanding of continuous integration and continuous delivery concepts and practices
- Direct experience with how software is built, tested and released to customers
- Demonstrated ability to prioritize amongst competing opportunities, balancing customer needs with business priorities and the ability to articulate the rationale behind those decisions
- Strong use of analytics, user research and business cases to drive decisions and improve products
- Experience working with a variety of product management strategies and techniques, with a clear understanding of the pros and cons of each and how and when to apply them effectively
- Demonstrated ability in breaking down complex problems, developing strategies and plans to solve them, and effectively collaborating with teams to deliver solutions
- Exceptional written and oral communication skills
- Exceptional organizational and analytical skills
- Experience working for an engineering-driven company a plus
- Startup experience a plus
