Senior Product Manager

We are a self-funded, London based startup of a steep growth trajectory. We provide developers and DevOps teams a self-service cloud-native delivery platform, with which organisations can ship applications quickly, securely and at scale by automating away the complexities of cloud and Kubernetes. With us our customers, like the UK’s Home Office or Bank of England, are harnessing cloud-native technologies, limiting the challenges of infrastructure management and rapidly delivering digital products.

We are on a mission to enable organisations to make cloud and software delivery simple and efficient, whilst having the insights into costs, security and cadence. As a company that holds customers at the heart of everything we do, we are looking for candidates that want to make a real change and support organisations as they move to cloud and use it easily.

We’re looking for an experienced lean/agile practitioner who has worked in a hands on product role delivering modern software into production to join our growing product team. You enjoy helping your team make progress in the face of hard problems and ambiguity. You are thrilled when your team’s software delights your customer and you have a gift for doing so. You are comfortable learning new technologies and are excited about finding opportunities in complex markets.

The Role
Our product managers and product designers work side-by-side with our engineers in small, empowered teams, using Lean and UCD as guides. We measure success by making our customers more productive.
