Hiring an experienced Product Manager to lead the creation of world-changing open source software products.
Your Role at Protocol Labs
As an open source product manager you’ll use a diverse set of set of engineering, UX, and business skills to create products that guide and direct fundamental changes to the structure of the web. You’re action oriented and are able to guide and support an engineering team of 5-15 people in a very fast-paced environment, yet can step back and see how an individual project or goal fits into our larger mission. You take immense pride and responsibility in your work and aren’t afraid to stand up for what you think is right.
Great product managers use design thinking to deeply understand user needs, craft narratives, and lead a team in solving these needs with delightful products or features. They balance the need for an ambitious roadmap with the need for a healthy, reliable release cycle. To do this well you must operate at intersection between new ideas, technical possibility, user needs, and organizational priorities. Taking information from those reference points, you must iteratively design product narratives and product requirements documents while also steering release cycles and communicating with stakeholders.
Candidates for this position should have a strong understanding of the unique factors that arise in open source work. Proven experience with open source software teams is highly preferred.
