Product

Timescale🐯 is looking for our first growth Product Manager to help drive the growth and expansion of our database cloud.

Love technology and developer products, yet equally interested in solving business problems and driving product adoption? Feel excited working with many teams including engineers, product and designers, and marketing and sales partners?

As a senior Product Manager for growth, you will help define and lead initiatives to drive Timescale Cloud product adoption and expansion. You’ll develop a deep empathy towards improving the experience of users during their first weeks of onboarding and months of adoption. You’ll figure out how to unlock the growth of data-under-management for users on our database cloud, including the adoption of new product features to the benefit of our users.  You’ll drive strong decision-making through data-driven analysis and hypothesis testing, and qualitative research and customer insights.  

This is an exciting opportunity to help us build the future of our database cloud and business. We’re building a larger growth engineering team and internal customer data platform, and you’ll lead the product side of that team and practice. You will have significant strategic and tactical responsibilities for defining, planning, and executing growth initiatives for Timescale Cloud.  

If you have experience in product growth for SaaS products, and want to have a direct and immediate impact on a fast growing startup serving developers worldwide, then this is the role for you.

For the right candidate, staff product manager levels and responsibilities for this role are a possibility. More senior candidates may also have product responsibilities overseeing our internal customer data platform, ensuring the right data infrastructure for driving growth initiatives.

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 and empathic understanding of our customers and their problems
  • Craft a quarterly product growth strategy and roadmap in concert with other product managers, customers, engineering, design, and go-to-market teams.
  • Define methods and metrics for identifying success and failure, while ensuring the team is clear on their objectives.
  • Measure adoption of the product, collect customer feedback regularly, and adjust plans as needed. Use data to support your decisions, and perform fast-paced experimentation to drive measurable product improvements.
  • Help our product designers and engineers build beautiful, intuitive data product experiences.
  • Drive continuous product improvement and optimize for shipping a portfolio of small, medium and large releases.
  • Work with go-to-market teams on messaging, positioning, pricing, and launch activities.
  • Potentially help define and product manage our internal customer data platform to support product and go-to-market needs.

Requirements:

  • 5+ years of proven track record in product management, with at least 3+ years of experience on SaaS platforms.
  • Growth PM experience, including building experimentation programs, strong collaboration with marketing teams, etc.
  • Ability to write SQL queries and build dashboards to track product growth and provide insights that power big decisions.
  • Understanding of databases or other technical infrastructure products, and the developer journey to adopt them.
  • Experience working with broader software ecosystems or partners is a plus!
  • Excellent written and verbal communication, with a precise talent for articulating customer challenges.
  • 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.
