Playbooks started as an experiment to improve chat during incidents. Since then, it has iterated vigorously to become a pillar of Mattermost’s multi-product strategy and is used by our customers to carry out their most valuable workflows such as product release, cybersecurity response, and customer onboarding. 

We are looking for a product manager that is particularly good at connecting the dots between user insights and big picture ideas, and then breaking it down into incremental deliverables that offer customer value and validate assumptions. You will be the go-to owner of a cross-functional team as well as represent the product to the rest of the company and community including sales, marketing, and leadership teams. 

Did you know that the iPhone couldn’t copy and paste text until two years after its initial launch? Playbooks is currently at that stage. We’ve gotten great validation of its amazing potential but the inflection point is still ahead of us.

    • Own the roadmap planning and execution for Playbooks to drive company-level outcomes
    • Grow the adoption of Playbooks within Mattermost user base well as in the broader market
    • Become the subject matter expert of the use cases and value propositions for each applicable industry vertical
    • Develop a deep understanding of customer needs, and use it to shape product roadmap and team objectives
    • Prioritize effectively maintaining a laser focus on high impact work that drives improvement on product KPIs
    • Analyze data to determine if shipped features and experiments had the desired impact.
    • Communicate product initiatives, strategy and output metrics, and updates across all stakeholders in the company as well as community

Required Background/Skills:

    • Product management experience working on B2B SaaS or self-hosted products
    • Excellent written communicator, with prior experience working in asynchronous environments
    • Comfortable working in a rapidly changing environment where you are prepared to initiate and thrive in change
