About the role

As the product leaders of, it is our job to ship the right product to the high standards we expect of ourselves, and to monitor its success after launch. We understand that a product isn't finished when it goes out the door.

We're looking for an experienced product manager to join us. You'll be focused on's authorization framework, enabling fine grained access controls to our customers.

What you'll do

  • Work closely with Design, Engineering, Product, Sales, Legal, Security, Customer Support, Marketing and Leadership to rapidly identify and validate product opportunities
  • Break down product opportunities into clear, concrete units of work that can be used to drive delivery
  • Specify the appropriate sequence and relative priority of product opportunities
  • Own project management with your squad and external customers to ensure smooth product launch
  • Bring to bear data, strategic insight and context to influence team members and build consensus for key decisions
  • Positively contribute to Product Team culture and provides mentorship and coaching to more junior Product Managers where appropriate

What you need to succeed

  • 5+ years experience as a formal Product Manager, previously focused on authorization, roles and permissions, and/or user management flows for a SaaS product
  • Experience in building platforms applied across a complex application
  • You've taken an idea from its initial brief to design to development to QA to release. You're at ease project managing a product through this process and how to ensure that release dates are met
  • You are capable of making sound decisions with incomplete/ imperfect data; proven track record to assess tradeoffs, thoughtfully prioritize, and maintain a bias for action
  • You communicate well. You explore your ideas through concise and thoughtful writing. You understand that half of the job is making sure the organization knows what your team is working on and how it will affect them
  • You're customer empathetic. You constantly look for ways to build customer understanding, whether through customer interviews or jumping into the support queue to solve real customer problems
  • You're technical enough. You work with engineers to understand how our data is modeled and how it flows through our system, but you know to leave the technical details of “how” to the engineers
  • You're a data-driven problem solver. You build a hypothesis and test it with data. Amplitude, SQL, and Looker are tools you are familiar with. The thought of not being able to explain why something was built, and whether it was a success, makes you queasy
