Product Manager

Alfresco is growing globally. As a truly global company (nearly 400 employees and offices in the UK, US, and Australia), we handle over seven billion pieces of content for 11 million users in more than 212 countries. Since 2010, we’ve grown ~25% year over year on average, and have helped an increasing number of companies deal with challenges of the modern work place.

Since 2005, Alfresco has championed and delivered flexible solutions that help organisations like Cisco, Saks 5th Avenue, Fox, NASA, Stanford University, and both US & EU Governments collaborate around and share their business content inside and out of the organization.

Today, through our open-source Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Business Process Management (BPM) solutions, we’re pioneering better ways to help our customers design and create automated processes around the business content they interact with every day.

Tomorrow, our customers will enjoy everything they love about Alfresco through the lens of design-led custom applications, making it simple and intuitive to do your work.

As we build towards a planned IPO, every member of our team will make a significant impact on our business and our customers. We want you to share in the experience of building a truly great company and doing great work.

The Team…..
As a product team we’re focused on the needs of our customers. This covers both their requirements now, and their need for new products they haven’t yet dreamed of. We develop our products using lean and agile methodologies including iterative validation, elaboration and user testing before writing a line of code. We strongly believe that if we give our customers a great user experience that really solves the customer problem, our customers and our business will be successful. We can only do this through teamwork!

We offer flexible work arrangements, but Product Managers would normally be expected to be collaboratively working in close proximity to their development team.
