The Cloud Foundry team at Pivotal is looking for a great product manager to join us in building our open platform as a service (PaaS), transforming how the world deploys and scales software.
You are passionate about the cloud-based future of infrastructure provisioning and software deployment. You understand why PaaS isn’t just a buzzword but a game changer. You have a deep empathy for what current operations and development groups experience with traditional provisioning and deployment practices, and you want to help them find a better way.
Although you have a high-level vision of how the right PaaS technology can fundamentally change corporate IT, you are grounded in the concrete details of making that vision into a reality. You can identify clear incremental steps forward to that overarching vision. You enjoy working closely with programmers to hammer out the details and ensure that the emerging implementation does what you expected.
Cloud Foundry is co-developed with Pivotal Labs, a leader in the field of agile software development. We are opinionated about how software should be built. Product Managers are embedded with the engineering team. Engineers pair program, all-day every-day, because we know it delivers remarkable results. We work in small teams in a large open team room. We believe in working at a sustainable pace – you’ll typically work hard for 8 hours each day, but then you’re off work to relax, recharge, and refocus.
Cloud Foundry engineering is located in San Francisco, in our SOMA office near 4th and Howard St. To make sure you start your day energized, we provide a catered breakfast every weekday morning, and unlimited snacks/drinks are of course available all day. Our collaborative, open-plan office space is filled with talented people who enjoy taking advantage of our weekly Tech Talks, playing ping pong, and hanging out with their co-workers.
Develop a product vision by engaging with internal stakeholders, customers, and the broader PaaS community, then break that vision down into an actionable backlog of user stories for the development team
Work hands-on with the development team to prioritize, plan, and deliver software that meets your requirements
Focus on delivering a Minimum Viable Product through careful and deliberate prioritization
Help innovate and iterate on agile PM processes and share our learnings
