  • Help our product designers build beautiful, intuitive data product experiences.
  • Design powerful APIs (SQL, REST, GraphQL) as programmatic platform interfaces.
  • Own execution and delivery of new product features end-to-end.
  • Measure adoption of the product, collect customer feedback regularly, and adjust plans as needed. Use data to support your decisions.
  • Work with go-to-market teams on messaging, positioning, pricing, and launch activities.
  • Help support customer engagements and take part in sales enablement activities within the company.
  • Serve as the connective tissue between engineering, design, marketing, customer care, and other stakeholders, proactively communicating product questions and decisions.

Requirements:

  • Strong understanding of cloud-native infrastructure architectures. Experience with databases or other technical products with high scale, high performance needs.
  • Comfortable engaging and working in the open with developer communities.
  • Excellent written and verbal communication, and the ability to explain complex technical design in 20 seconds or 20 minutes, depending on the audience and goals.
  • Ability to combine data-driven approaches with strong user empathy to figure out what/when/why to ship – we’re building a platform for millions of users and there’s lots to do!
  • Excited by ambiguous and vague problem definitions and ability to refine them to an actionable plan.
