Timescale🐯 is looking for an experienced Technical Product Manager with a track record of success shipping SaaS products and cloud infrastructure.

Love databases? Advanced cloud-native infrastructure, like containerized stateful applications running in multi-cluster Kubernetes? Feel at home working with highly technical engineers?

This is an exciting opportunity to help build the next great cloud-native database and data infrastructure platform. You will have product responsibilities for our cloud platform, helping to define, plan, and ship advanced capabilities for our managed service, both customer-facing and internal. You will also balance and improve reliability, availability, and security, ensuring that Timescale Cloud achieves its uptime SLAs while continuing to innovate at a rapid pace.

We need you to help us execute tactically and move strategically so we can meet our ambitious goals and build the next great database cloud. If you have experience in technical product management and want a role where you can have a direct and immediate impact on a fast-growing startup serving developers worldwide, then this is the role for you.

Timescale is a fully-remote company with team members around the world, and English language fluency is a requirement. To better coordinate with their teams, the preferred candidate for this role will have working hours in the North/South American time zones.

Responsibilities:

  • Develop a deep understanding of our customers and their problems, the competitive landscape, and market trends.  
  • Craft a quarterly and annual product strategy and roadmap in concert with other product managers, customers, engineering, design, and go-to-market teams. Create differentiation for Timescale Cloud.
  • Perform product discovery, gather and document requirements and feedback from customers, community users, and internal stakeholders, and find innovative solutions to complex problems.
  • Own execution and delivery of new product features end-to-end, but also balance  feature development against reliability, availability, and security concerns.
  • 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, 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:

  • 3+ years of proven track record in product management, with at least 2+ years of experience on complex technical products/platforms.
  • 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.
  • Strong sense of ownership and problem-solving skills - Timescale is moving fast and so should you. Trying things, making mistakes, and quickly improving is in our DNA.
  • Computer Science or technical degree much preferred, or prior technical development experience.
