As GitHub expands into new communities and new product categories, we’re looking for a Staff Product Manager to help us shape how the world discovers, experiments, deploys, and maintains artificial intelligence and machine learning (AI/ML) models. 

 

In this role, you’ll work with a global team of mission-driven “Hubbers” working on some of the world’s most complex engineering problems. You’ll answer questions like, “How do we…”

 

  • Adapt existing GitHub workflows to the needs of AI/ML practitioners?
  • Collaborate with the community to establish standards & norms for ML Ops?
  • Help AI/ML practitioners iterate and get experiment results faster?
  • Make it easier to fork, and fine tune models?
  • Enable the general public (i.e. consumers) to discover and play with new models?

 

Working at GitHub, you’ll be challenged and rewarded with global impact. With over 85 million developers contributing on GitHub, there’s simply no other destination where your work can have a larger impact on the developer community.

 

We value collaboration, empathy, quality, positive impact and shipping. The most successful candidates will exhibit work that reflects these values. We want every team member to do their best work, and we'll partner to do the same for you. We expect you to have a strong technical background, excellent communication skills and a commitment to make everyone on your team feel included.

Your Impact

In this role, you’ll have tremendous opportunity to learn, collaborate and impact the habits of AI/ML practitioners everywhere. As the product owner for AI/ML workflows on GitHub, you will:

 

  • Own the product vision for AI/ML. As the person responsible for product strategy, you’ll build the vision for your product area and ensure it aligns with company strategy. You’ll define how data scientists, researchers, students, and hobbyists practice machine learning using GitHub. You’ll make tough prioritization decisions while helping the team think strategically about long-term opportunities while balancing short term objectives. 
  • Become an expert. You’ll become an authority on the practices, innovations, trends, and history of AI/ML. You’ll share your vision with others both inside and outside of the company so we can make GitHub a better home for AI/ML practitioners.
  • Represent the customer. You’ll serve as the champion and voice of customers in every conversation. You will build direct relationships with customers and immerse yourself in their experience of the product. You’ll also strive to ensure everyone on our team understands our customers’ needs.
  • Collaborate across teams. Your success will require coordination across multiple teams and disciplines at GitHub. You’ll play a critical role creating alignment between partner teams and ensure we all succeed together as a team.
  • Make data-informed decisions. You’ll use both quantitative and qualitative data to identify customer pain points, and use this information to prioritize your product roadmap. 
  • Experiment. You’ll drive improvements through iterative design and experimentation. You’ll gather data to build a strong understanding of the customer, the friction they experience, and the solutions that lead to a better developer experience.
  • Measure success. You’ll own the definition of “success” for your product area – making sure the criteria are measurable, attainable, visible to all stakeholders, and create the right incentives.

Qualifications

Minimum requirements

  • Excellent written & oral communication skills 
  • Track record of using qualitative and quantitative data to prioritize and drive decision-making
  • Demonstrated ability to ship software that drives business impact
  • Working familiarity with modern ML development stack, open-source libraries, and hosted ML services (e.g. Jupyter Notebooks, Replicate, Hugging Face, Google CoLab, Tensorflow, PyTorch, NumPy, etc.)

Nice to have, but not required

  • Proficiency in one or more major programming languages
  • Experience working across multiple disciplines (e.g. Sales, Marketing, Finance, Legal, Support, Product, Engineering, Research, and Design)
  • Familiarity with:
    • GitHub and its users (or have used GitHub yourself)
    • Developer tools
    • Enterprise development practices
    • Continuous integration, delivery and learning
    • Cloud compute methodologies and technologies

Minimum salary of $118,100 to maximum $265,100.

At GitHub certain roles are eligible for additional rewards, including annual bonus and stock. These rewards are allocated based on individual impact in role. In addition, certain roles also have the opportunity to earn sales incentives based on revenue or utilization, depending on the terms of the plan and the employee's role.

Voluntary Self-Identification (US)

Voluntary Self-Identification

For government reporting purposes, we ask candidates to respond to the below self-identification survey. Completion of the form is entirely voluntary. Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

GitHub is committed to non-discrimination and regardless of whether an employee chooses to self-identify their ethnicity or race, no negative consequences will occur due to that decision.


Veteran Status

 

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.

Disclosure of this information is completely voluntary and refusing to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. The information will be used only in ways that are consistent with Section 4212 and will be kept confidential.


U.S. Armed Forces Status

In addition to our affirmative action obligations for protected veterans, for our Diversity efforts, Microsoft offers you the opportunity to share on a voluntary basis whether you have served in the U.S. military (including the Reserves and National Guard).


Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at  http://www.dol.gov/ofccp.
