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. We prioritize work that delivers the most impact, and is measurable and achievable.

  • 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 methods and metrics for measuring success and failure while ensuring the team is clear on their objectives, and constantly track performance
  • Coordinate with other product managers, designers, and engineers to ensure a cohesive overall user experience

Requirements

  • 5+ years of product management or engineering leadership experience in SaaS or developer tools
  • 5+ years of experience in software development or software operations
  • Experience with a continuous integration and delivery toolchain
