Because you belong at Twilio.
The Who, What, Why and Where
At Twilio, product managers are responsible for every aspect of the product. From concept to API design to go-to-market planning to revenue ownership. You will touch every team within Twilio, and have full responsibility and autonomy to grow your products. You will lead the product requirements required to build and operate real-time, highly-scalable distributed services that must operate at better than five 9s availability, all while the product grows at an exponential growth rate.
Twilio is looking for a Staff Product Manager to join the SMS team of our Programmable Messaging Product. You will understand the needs of our customers in the global SMS market and build products to help our customers scale and deploy worldwide. Working side by side with other product managers and engineering counterparts, you will collaborate to craft and deliver on the vision, strategy, and roadmap for Programmable SMS at Twilio.
Twilio is looking for a leader who lives the Twilio Magic and has a demonstrated track record of Product Development. They also have:
- 7+ years in product management in a fast-paced company. You have hustle and know how to knock down barriers to get to your objective.
- You are curious, collaborative, humble and have empathy as a key trait.
- You are a strategic thinker and thrive operating in broad scope, from conception through continuous operation of 24x7 services.
- You have solved complex problems and have the aptitude to navigate uncharted waters.
- The ability to solicit customer requirements from many - often competing - sources, prioritize, and work with engineering and design to deliver
- Collaborative mindset and ability to work with distributed, cross-functional teams.
- Great communication skills. You're equally at home on stage presenting to an audience of developers as you are coming up with product requirements. Your best days are the ones where you do both in the same day.
- Previous experience as a developer and the ability to have a comfortable conversation with developers.
- Experience managing products at various stages of maturity, from legacy to greenfield
- Technically savvy and experience with the cloud, APIs, communications, enterprise software, devices, and mobility is a plus.
- Bachelor’s degree or equivalent experience required.
As a Staff Product Manager, you will be doing many things including:
- BE AN OWNER & BE BOLD: Own the roadmap of your product/area for Programmable SMS. Every country and network has its own quirks that we design and build for.
- BE INCLUSIVE: Work directly with the carriers in moving the ecosystem forward and building products for both the carriers and our customers.
- WEAR THE CUSTOMER’S SHOES & DRAW THE OWL: Be the leading expert on our messaging customers, understanding what and how they are building, where they get stuck, and what tools or tech will make their jobs easier.
- WRITE IT DOWN: Report on both the business and operational performance of your products and customers on a weekly basis
- BE BOLD & NO SHENANIGANS: Work with cross functional teams to grow a global multi-million dollar business.
