About Product Management at CircleCI
The Product Management team is responsible for the product strategy, roadmap, and execution. Because developers are our customers (and we’re a huge user of our own service), Product Management and Engineering work together closely to understand the needs of our users, and jointly define the product vision. We work in cross-functional teams, use data and user-research to drive our decision making, believe in delivering features quickly and continuously improving them, and love to talk to our users. To do that effectively we work in durable teams and use agile and scrum methodologies. We have full ownership of our product areas and are responsible for the success of our products. We prioritize work that delivers the most impact and is measurable and achievable.

- Build and maintain a roadmap to delight our users while growing the business
- Responsible for defining what the team works on and why by assessing opportunities and doing discovery.
- Integrate usability studies, user research, market analysis, and community feedback into product requirements to ensure the product satisfies user needs as well as wants
- Inform product decisions with quantitative data on user behavior and experimentation (a/b testing)
- Define MVPs, prioritize features, build agreement, and coordinate product schedules with a team of engineers and designers to ship top-quality experiences to users for a core part of the CircleCI experience
- Define methods and metrics for measuring success and failure of the product, the technology, and the team while ensuring the team is clear on their objectives, and constantly tracking performance
- Coordinate with other product managers, designers, and engineers to ensure cohesive overall user experience.
What we’re looking for:
- 5+ years of product management experience, ideally in SaaS or related space
- Demonstrated ability to prioritize amongst competing opportunities, balancing customer needs with business priorities, and the ability to articulate the rationale behind those decisions
- Strong use of analytics, user research, and business cases to drive decisions and improve products
- Exceptional written and oral communication skills
- Exceptional organizational and analytical skills
- Solid understanding of how software is built, tested, and released to customers
- Experience working for an engineering-driven company a plus
