Snowflake started with a clear vision: make modern data warehousing effective, affordable, and accessible to all data users. Because traditional on-premises and cloud solutions struggle with this, Snowflake developed an innovative product with a new built-for-the-cloud architecture that combines the power of data warehousing, the flexibility of big data platforms, and the elasticity of the cloud at a fraction of the cost of traditional solutions. Over the last few years, Snowflake has added additional products and features to its portfolio (from data pipelines, cross region / cloud features to data exchanges) evolving to the leading Cloud Data Platform.

We are looking for an experienced product manager to lead our efforts around Snowflake’s underlying cloud infrastructure across all major cloud providers including AWS, Azure, and GCP. In this role, you’ll be working with numerous engineering teams to ensure Snowflake leverages the latest cloud technology - ranging from scalable cloud storage, elastic compute / VMs, to advanced networking and security services. Snowflake’s presence on all major cloud platforms also requires close interaction and collaboration with our cloud partners including AWS, Azure, Google, on a regular cadence.

  • Manage programs and structure projects to ensure smooth execution of the product roadmap.
  • Manage customer preview programs and engage in frequent conversations with customers both on site and in customer offices to understand their needs, gather feedback, and overall ensure that product direction is in tune with customer needs.

Minimum Requirements:

  • Good understanding and desired experience working with core cloud services (examples: S3 / Azure Blob Storage / GCS, EC2, cloud provider load balancer, EBS, PrivateLink, various cloud APIs).
  • Experience with numerous deployment strategies and automation for cloud services.  
  • The ability to understand the breadth of our product line as well as the technical ability to drill into details on owned areas.
  • Prior experience defining a product vision and roadmap, and managing incremental execution through successful launches.
  • Proven expertise working with, presenting to and managing communications with customers.
  • Demonstrated ability to work cross functionally across the company.
  • Ability to thrive in the dynamic environment that comes with being part of an innovative startup from its early days. That means flexibility as well as dealing with ambiguity.
  • 5+ years of relevant experience in a technical role.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
