At LogDNA you’ll help us build a fast and modern log management platform that offers the flexibility of an amazing developer experience with the trust of enterprise-grade infrastructure. Today, LogDNA is used by over 3,000 teams including IBM, OpenAI, Instacart, and Lime Bike. We’re building a future where developers don’t have to dread the tools they use at work, starting with log management. We’ve achieved 300% year-over-year revenue growth in the last year, and we’re just getting started.
We’re looking for a creative and ambitious Associate Product Manager to help drive delivery across a wide surface area of product, ranging from our web-facing dashboards to our developer integrations and internal infrastructure.
