Hello! I’m LJ, Group Product Manager at Customer.io.
I’m looking for a Senior Product Manager to lead the team making Customer.io the go-to messaging solution for teams building mobile apps. You’ll drive the roadmap for one of our fastest growing product areas, shaping the features and SDKs that mobile app teams need when connecting with their customers.
This role is perfect for you if you love staying on top of how mobile apps are created in the rapidly changing environment of iOS and Android development. You’ll work directly with exceptional mobile app developers to understand what they need to run their communications. You’ll take those insights and partner with your squad to ship software that makes it easy for them to bring their perfect messaging strategy to life.
And you’ll be learning, building, and shipping within a healthy, supportive, and disciplined product environment. At Customer.io you’ll find a culture of innovation and customer focus, balanced with profitability and strong financials. Check out this report for an overview of the landscape and how we stand out.
What you’ll do
- Lead the mobile 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)
- Develop a deep knowledge of our prospects and customers, industry trends, and the competitive mobile landscape. Use this knowledge to educate, advocate, and influence within the company.
- Find and nurture ideas from anywhere in the company, expecting many of the best ideas will not be your own.

What we’re looking for
- Able to commit to at least 3 hrs of working overlap with the Americas (GMT-8 to GMT-5 timezone)
- Previously built and launched mobile apps or have worked on tools and software used by mobile app teams.
- Successful track record of taking software products from “idea” to “shipped”.
- An infectious energy when sharing customer stories, and you use those stories to align your team around the customer’s experience.
- Passionately curious and love asking “Why?” one more time.
- Proficient skills with data including how to source, analyze, and present quantitative and qualitative data.
- Exceptional organization skills and self-motivated.
- Experience navigating ambiguity and taking ownership of problems even when the next steps and solutions aren’t clear.
- A proactive communicator, and collaborator, who believes in “working out loud” to share work early and often.
- An excellent writer who values clarity and brevity while avoiding jargon.
