OPEN POSITION: Product
Senior Technical Product Manager
Prefect is an equal-opportunity employer. Members of under-represented groups are encouraged to apply!
Are you looking for an incredible opportunity to work with a high-growth technical SaaS company? Our workflow orchestration platform bridges the gap between data engineers and data scientists, allowing them to focus on their work while we handle the often-frustrating details of defining, monitoring, and managing workflows. We are looking for enthusiastic new additions to our team who are excited about eliminating negative engineering and the question, “What will you build?”
As Prefect’s Senior Technical Product Manager, you will work on and lead projects critical to the success of the company, taking features and products from conception to launch. As the first member of Prefect’s product organization, you will report to our CEO and work together to implement Prefect’s product vision as the standard tool for dataflow automation.
The Senior Technical Product Manager will be primarily responsible for transforming our product vision into actionable, tangible outcomes that deliver value to our users. You will coordinate with internal stakeholders, including our CEO and CTO, to implement and execute an ambitious roadmap, including the next generation of Prefect products. You will proactively identify opportunities for improvement, build consensus, track risks and dependencies and lead projects to completion with a positive attitude.
To succeed in this role, you will need a strong understanding of our users. You will need to be deeply empathetic to the negative engineering problem and be motivated by creating first-class user experiences. The features you deliver will have positive impacts across multiple products including our SaaS platform and our open-source APIs, and you will ensure that minor details receive as much care as major strategic directives.
