GitHub is changing the way the world builds software, and we want you to help build GitHub!
GitHub is a key part of many development teams’ infrastructure stacks today. With the increasing popularity of infrastructure as code, more development teams need to quickly and consistently provision their GitHub environments, to make it easy to start new projects, and to meet security and compliance requirements. Our goal is to make it simple, automated, and configurable with code to manage your GitHub environments.
To lead this effort, we’re looking for an experienced product manager to join GitHub, in the area of software supply chain security. The software supply chain security team works to make consumption of open source software something that all developers can do with confidence - so that they have more faith in the security of open source code than in their own code. We want to make security of open source software as automated as possible so that the community can scale to secure all software. You can learn more about our security products here:
In this role, you will have the unique opportunity to work as a Product Manager with a globally distributed, diverse and a passionate team. You’ll work with a team of engineers to research, create and maintain features and experiences impacting millions of developers worldwide. You will also develop deeper expertise into GitHub’s software supply chain product features, evangelize their usage, and support our customers through their security journeys.
- Own the product vision for a new product in the security & compliance space. Define the key customer pain points to be solved, and how GitHub will address these needs. Ensure that it aligns with the overall security product strategy and company vision, and help our customers succeed. Develop deeper strategy for GitHub in areas including configuration as code and automated security fixes.
- Become an expert on the domain, market, and trends in the space. Evangelize your vision so all stakeholders are aligned, have context and understand where we are going.
- Engage with security leaders at our top customers, identify opportunities to deliver value, and build relationships to better understand how to serve our users. Represent the customer and bring the customer’s voice into the creation process.
- Manage the roadmap. Make tough tactical prioritization decisions and tradeoffs while helping the company think long-term. Build trust with stakeholders by maintaining an understandable, accurate roadmap.
- Collaborate across teams. We win or lose as a team. Product managers play a critical role in creating alignment between engineering teams and stakeholders. A collaborative attitude is essential to the job.
- Use data to inform decision making. Analyze data for trends and potential customer pain points, and use this to prioritize and inform how to improve the product. Go back to the data when needed to answer questions.
- Measure success. Own the measures used to define success for your product. Success measures must be defined at the inception of a product and tracked throughout its lifecycle. Make measures visible to all stakeholders and interpret them into actionable conclusions and new hypotheses.
- Develop new opportunities. With your finger on the pulse of the market, the customers and the engineering teams, you are uniquely positioned to discover and develop new opportunities.
- 3-5+ years of engineering, developer evangelism, product management, program management, or equivalent experience with demonstrated ability to discover opportunities and define and deliver products.
- Previous experience working with a software delivery team.
- Experience of building platform features across a product/service, deep understanding of administrator’s needs in an enterprise on security and compliance areas.
- Experience building features for a cloud service/application at scale.
- Experience working across organizations with Sales, Marketing, Support, Product, Engineering and Design.
- Strong technical abilities including experience with developer tools.
- Familiarity with modern software development practices and infrastructure and/or configuration as code.
- Demonstrated ability to translate complex feedback into actionable priorities.
- Entrepreneurial thinking and the ability to act effectively with only high-level direction.
- Strong communication skills, with clear verbal communication as well as explicit and mindful written communication skills.
- Strong customer and stakeholder empathy and understanding.
- Strong analytical capabilities, to decompose complex structures and data into useful primitives and analyses.
- Demonstrated ability to lead multidisciplinary teams and projects.
- Previous experience with policy, compliance, auditing, and reporting systems.
- Previous experience with open source project development, use, and consumption.
- Willingness to travel anywhere to our developer communities, staying productive and professional on the road.
