Overview

Hi, I’m Somer, VP of Product at Customer.io.

I’m looking for a Senior Product Manager to join our CDP team. You’ll tackle a challenging opportunity: taking our Customer Data Platform product from 1 to 100.

At Customer.io, we enable companies to create highly personalized messaging journeys that impact millions of people every day. Our customers are fellow product-led growth companies who use emails, SMS, in-apps, and mobile push notifications to accelerate their customers’ “Aha!” moment.

Our Customer Data Platform connects the data needed for such messaging journeys from and to wherever it needs to go: APIs, data warehouses, marketing automation tools, ad platforms, analytics tools, CRMs, and more.

Our vision is to evolve the CDP into the ultimate data experience for product-led growth professionals who aren’t comfortable with code. Do I use the first_name or the firstName attribute? When and why does the signup_validated event fire? These questions stop most users in their tracks. We need you to unblock them!

This role is perfect if you enjoy getting into the weeds with customers, designers, and engineers as much as you enjoy building alignment with senior leadership. Both are critical for success.

You’ll work within a supportive and disciplined product environment, and at a company with strong financials. Check out this report for an overview of how we stand out.

What you’ll do

Lead the CDP Squad in achieving strategic outcomes with solutions that are:

  • Valuable (our customers choose to use)
  • Viable (the solution works within the constraints of the business)
  • Usable (our customers can figure out how to use)
  • Feasible (our engineers have the skills and technology to implement)

Contribute a deep knowledge of customer data integration, identity resolution, and the related competitive landscape.

What we’re looking for

  • Working hours that overlap with 9 AM to 3 PM Central Daylight Time
  • 5+ years of product management experience in a software development setting
  • 2+ years on a CDP, Reverse ETL, Data Warehouse, or Integration-as-a-Service product
  • Alignment-building expertise – you listen, understand, and influence at a near-executive level
  • Product-led Growth experience – you’ve used marketing automation tools before
  • Fluency with concepts like unique identifier, API, ETL – an Engineering background is a plus
  • Data proficiency – you can source, analyze, and present quantitative and qualitative data
  • Excellent writing skills – you write clearly and concisely, favoring plain language over jargon
  • Initiative – you take ownership of problems when next steps aren’t clear
