Overview

About the role 

As a Senior Product Manager, you will be responsible for defining ingestion strategy as it pertains to Mezmo’s agent and ingestion sources to help Mezmo’s customers like IBM, Reddit, and American Airlines generate insights from petabytes of log data. You will be collaborating with fellow product managers, product designers, engineers, and counterparts in go-to-market to grow our portfolio of what and how we ingest data.

You will play a pivotal role as we shift from being a single product to multi-product company: log analysis and observability pipeline solutions. You will directly be responsible for leading one of the major product pillars, and will be responsible for helping to shape the culture of our product engineering organization moving forward. We are in the second inning of a massive market opportunity and you will have the opportunity to be one of the first.

The ideal candidate is highly analytical but understands the importance of making decisions quickly and driving progress above all. (Your least favorite building is a bikeshed.) You care more about finding the right answer than being right, take pride in building products that empower users to do their job better, and are a clear and effective communicator capable of bridging the gap between technical and non-technical audiences.

What You’ll Be Doing:

  • Work with product leadership and go-to-market to establish KPIs for success of your product
  • Partner with engineering to ship quality products on time
  • Partner with engineering to reduce product defects and balance technical debt with roadmap priorities
  • Partner with go-to-market to build and iterate a process for product feedback and launches
  • Help define and execute product roadmap and strategy through close collaboration with the leadership team and other stakeholders.
  • Make tough tactical prioritization decisions while helping the team think short-term and long-term.
  • Ensure alignment within the Product/Engineering/Design teams and across the wider company to ensure consistent execution of the roadmap, meeting customer and business needs regularly while staying within technical constraints.
  • Engage closely with the Engineering team to help determine the best technical implementation methods as well as a reasonable implementation schedule
  • Work closely with customer success to ensure existing customers are successful and that customer satisfaction goals are met.
  • Track quantitative and qualitative product and feature performance, ensuring our solutions are solving the right problems.

What We’re Looking For:

  • Successful track record shipping technically complex products that have created a positive impact for engineering teams.
  • Ability to break down technically complicated challenges and make them accessible to non-technical stakeholders
  • Strong ability to prioritize and make tradeoffs
  • Ability and desire to mentor product managers
  • Deep experience with complex enterprise software applications.
  • High level of comfort working with ambiguity and the ability to take complex situations and distill them down into actionable processes and next steps.
  • You should have a deep understanding of software development and operations. You should be able to understand our competitors’ offerings and be able to differentiate our product offerings.

About Mezmo

Mezmo is on a mission to empower people who build solutions that shape the world. We’re doing this by delivering a platform that enables enterprises to get more value from their observability data in real time, regardless of source, destination, use case, or scale. We’re not the only ones working on this problem but we have a few things the others don’t.

  1. We’re cloud-native and know how to make the most of modern technology like Kubernetes.
  2. We have scaled a solution from zero to petabyte scale in a short amount of time, while supporting thousands of active users across multiple environments.
  3. We are hungry for change and are surrounded by enterprises telling us they’re hungry, too.
  4. We have a kick-ass group of people who are thinking about the problem analytically and are excited to change the observability world for the better.

Mezmo has helped some of the world’s most innovative companies transform how they manage their systems and applications. Still, we know that we can help them get more value from their observability data by providing more flexibility and control over how they use it. This will enable teams to spend less time switching between data silos so they can focus on shipping better, more resilient, and secure products.

We have momentum on our side. Last year we saw triple digit revenue growth and added 800 new customers to our roster. Recent accolades include being named to YC’s Top Companies, CRN’s 10 Hottest DevOps Startups, and EMA’s Top 3 Observability Platforms.
