OpsLevel Job Board

Product Manager
Remote (EST hours), ON, Canada

Description

Introduction


At OpsLevel, we’re on a mission to help engineering teams wrangle large production architectures and adopt “You Build It, You Own It”.  We’re building a Service Ownership Platform - starting with a Microservice Catalog - to make it easier for engineering teams to own and operate software in production.  We want to take back DevOps: its roots were in Service Ownership and we want to bring it back there again.

Company


We're a seed-stage startup headquartered in Toronto, Canada and with employees working around the Americas.  We have closed our seed round in Sept 2020 with fantastic Silicon Valley investors and have a growing roster of customers.  As part of our growth, we’re hiring our first product manager to help contribute to our core product.

Our culture values the following traits in people:
  • Empathy: Think of others; think of your users
  • Growth Mindset: Get comfortable with being uncomfortable
  • Intellectual Honesty: The best solution is more important than anyone's ego
  • Focus & Efficiency: Keep the main thing the main thing
  • Simplicity

Roles and Responsibilities


  • Learn a ton about DevOps, SRE, and Developer Acceleration and leverage that knowledge to build great product
  • Routinely interact with our customers to identify their needs through interviews/feedback, data analysis, research, and attending sales / CS calls.  Translate these customer needs into business cases, features, product requirements and roadmaps.
  • You will manage multiple parallel projects and iterations alongside engineering, and ensure the delivery of feature releases that drive our core business.
  • While working with our engineering and design teams, you can make tradeoffs between scope and user experience.  You can apply intellectual honesty and clearly articulate your reasoning behind decisions.
  • Work with marketing, sales, and customer success teams to launch new features to our customers and get more value in their hands.

Requirements


  • You have sharp communication skills and can effectively present your ideas to technical stakeholders and executives alike
  • You get stuff done.  When you encounter a new situation, you are naturally curious, driven to learn, and unafraid to ask for help
  • You have a technical background and enjoy learning about new technology

Bonus Points


  • Background working as a product manager developing new products, ideally at a startup / SaaS company
  • You’re comfortable with SQL or data analysis tools
  • Experience with the end-to-end product lifecycle, from feature launch to end-of-life
  • You’ve previously worked on/with a platform or infrastructure team and understand operational aspects of delivering large scale service experiences

Preferred Qualifications


  • A technical degree or equivalent experience
  • You have experience with hands-on software development.
  • You are a master at prioritization
  • You love to serve customers, internal and external
