Staff Product Manager / Product Lead

We are seeking a talented and very senior Product Manager with experience creating products that developers love in the open source and cloud infrastructure ecosystem.

This is an exciting role where you will work directly with builders in enterprises, collaborate with our Add-on partners, engage the broad open source community and work with the core Ockam engineering team.

You will be the very first PM at Ockam! We have two products at Ockam:

The first is Ockam Open Source. This product has been available for over a year, is one of the fastest growing OSS communities on GitHub and has over 200,000 rust crate downloads.

The second is our paid subscription product called Ockam Orchestrator. This is an incredible opportunity to be part of the earliest moments of a new product's lifecycle. Ockam Orchestrator is a fully managed, cloud based service that our customers need to run Ockam at massive scale. It will launch into GA in the AWS marketplace in late September.

You will work along side our CEO, CTO, and VP of Engineering to help empower developers to build trusted systems. You will collaborate with customers, write code, and build how-to guides. This role is highly technical and very hands-on given the technical aspects of Ockam's products, and the use cases we encounter. You'll be responsible for all developer experiences and user flows. You will also have responsibility for, , and user guides.

Over the next year we will hire around 5 people into our Product / Developer Experience team. So in the beginning you will be a one-person show, but will be able to shape our product team from the ground up as you need more resources to fill out the customer and user experience.

You will leverage your prior expertises as a senior engineer to create demos and documentation - this is also a great opportunity to jump into the Rust ecosystem in earnest.

We think that there are several paths into this position. You could either be a Staff / Director / Lead PM or come from a very senior Solution Architect background. You probably have worked on products that have an open source and a managed cloud offering. Examples include HashiCorp, Confluent, Auth0, or MongoDB. Alternatively you may come from a cloud infrastructure / platform background such as Snowflake, Cloudflare, or Okta.

Our team is remote-first and globally distributed, but in this case you must be based in the United States and be a US Citizen.
