TELECOMMUTE – Work from Anywhere
Title:VP of Product
We’re looking for a Vice President of Product to inspire and grow Platform.sh to a new level. Platform.sh is set to fundamentally change the way DevOps is perceived and enable developers to bring their ideas to light. We are a deeply operational company: we don’t only take responsibility for the build phase, but also for the run. We care about quality and robustness before we care about glitz. We must go fast yet not break things.
We have values we try to live by, the first amongst which is:We aim for the stars; but we get there one step at a time. We want to tackle and solve hard problems, with a sense of urgency and bias toward action. We promote radical change through incremental steps. We’re balanced: thinking small is a self-fulfilling prophecy, betting the house is for cowboys.. You’ll help us in becoming ever more ambitious, and ever more robust.
The ideal candidate has a strong understanding of Platform.sh’s product space, experience in building teams and establishing product practices and knows how to drive execution.
Your mission will be supported by a strong set of Product Managers, who are actively tackling tough projects as radical pricing model changes, internal tooling and metrics. You will be enabling them and working directly with the CPO and CTO to drive the vision of the product.
Drive execution, by working hand in hand with product managers, engineering and design to ensure deliveries have the desired growth impact.
Partner with the CTO,CPO and product teams to develop the vision, strategy and priorities for Platform.sh.
Engage directly with customers, sales and support to understand the impact of features, gaps and improving the way of working.
Lead a team of product managers, who are highly experienced with the domain, keenly aware of customer needs and Platform’s technical capabilities and challenges.
Develop practices that empower product managers to effectively manage priorities and ensure a product culture that allows for a high level of autonomy.
Improve the team by attracting, retaining and developing new engineers, product managers and designers to allow them to excel.
You have 10+ years as a Product Manager, and 5+ years of experience in executive product position(s).
You have played a leadership role in defining and executing key strategic initiatives. You like setting up plans. Concrete plans. But you are adaptable and know when to take a u-turn.
You are a strong communicator, who ensures alignment in our challenging distributed team setup across many time zones, cultures and goals. You communicate well both verbally and in writing. People listen to you. But first and foremost because you listen to people. You are great at synthesis.
Demonstrated experience leading cross-functional teams that consistently execute on set product strategies.
You may be serious, but you are joyful. You want people around you to have fun. While building a product that is joy to use.
You have a strong growth mindset and an understanding of pricing strategies as well as the implications of cost around the design of features.
You have a strong background with software development workflows, cloud environments and the related SaaS or PaaS product space.
It would be great if you had experience in B2B product developmen…
