We are a team of doers, seasoned engineers, hackers and builders, working on the future of streaming data.

Funded by premier investors including GV and Lightspeed, Redpanda is building the streaming data platform for developers. We’re evolving streaming beyond the Apache Kafka® protocol into a unified “engine of record” that delivers a categorical reduction in complexity, wicked-fast performance, onboard Wasm transforms, and transparent tiered storage that gives consumers access to both real-time and historical data from a single API.
 

About the Role: 

We are looking for a Senior Product Manager (or experienced engineer/sales consultant with relevant domain expertise) to guide the evolution of our core product capabilities for the Redpanda streaming data platform. Reporting to the Head of Core Product, you will work with customers and study the market to gather data, drive the strategic roadmap for several of Redpanda’s core platform capabilities, and guide their inclusion into our self-hosted, SaaS and serverless cloud offerings. You will also help drive the technological vision in these areas, following the latest trends and advising the team on new technologies, standards, approaches, and potential partners in order to stay on the leading edge.

This is an opportunity to work closely with product and engineering leadership and the respective teams at a fast-growing, well-funded startup, building and delivering category-leading products.

  • Communicate new features internally and externally and help articulate the value proposition, messaging, and pricing.  This involves training GTM teams, sharing roadmap and product pitches with customers, writing public blogs, attending industry conferences, and potentially briefing industry analysts
  • Collaborate with multiple internal teams (including Engineering, Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success) to ensure we ship the right features, at the right time, with the right user experience to match the expectations of our ICP and various user personas
  • Own delivery of features end-to-end, picking up tasks wherever needed, reviewing documentation, and creating the telemetry required to measure the success of feature launches after rollout

You Have: 

  • 2+ years of experience in direct role-related product management for B2B enterprise software platforms, particularly data infrastructure, data integration or other distributed systems. Alternatively, 5+ years of experience in a sales consulting / customer success role supporting B2B enterprise software sales
  • 5+ years of experience overall experience in enterprise software companies
  • Experience working cross-functionally with technical and non-technical teams
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills, with the ability  to concisely explain technical concepts to non-technical audiences (and vice-versa)
  • Work with a 100% distributed / remote team, collaborating in GitHub/JIRA Slack, Google docs and other modern productivity tools independently and efficiently
  • Comfortable switching context frequently to address customer, engineering, and go-to-market issues and requests
  • Experience working closely with highly technical products and customers 
  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or related technical field, or equivalent experience

As a remote-first company, we strive to consider each candidate's job-related skills, location, experience, relevant education or training to determine individual base salary. Your talent partner will share more about the specific salary range for your preferred location during the hiring process.

Redpanda is used by Fortune 1000 enterprises pushing hundreds of terabytes a day, as well as by the solo dev prototyping a React application on her laptop. Think of it as a streaming data API platform that scales with you from the smallest projects to petabytes of data distributed across the globe.
Join Redpanda if you’d enjoy being part of a fast-moving, 100% remote organization with team members around the globe and a culture based on trust, transparency, communication, and kindness.

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
