Senior Product Manager - Serverless Event Gateway

San Francisco/Remote
Product
Full-time
About us

In 2015, we created a project called the Serverless Framework. Our mission was to make serverless development easy.  A community rallied behind the project and the broader serverless movement, contributing to the open source core, offering their opinions and insights, and sharing their passion. Today, the Serverless Framework is the de facto standard for serverless deployments, managing nearly one million deployments per month.

As the adoption of serverless has grown, so too have the needs of today’s serverless teams. In addition to tooling that simplifies the development of serverless applications, these teams need tools to simplify operations.  They need logs and metrics, they need team collaboration, they need ways to integrate with legacy systems, and so much more. To address these needs we recently launched the Serverless Platform.

An important component of the Serverless Platform is the Serverless Event Gateway. The Event Gateway is an event router, capable of routing event data to serverless functions and other services across clouds. It’s the answer to how organizations can integrate serverless into their existing services.  The Event Gateway lets you react to any event, from anywhere — any cloud provider or SaaS, containers and legacy infrastructure. With the Event Gateway, you can do things like: easily build FaaS-backed APIs, use configurable connectors to react to events from data stores like Kafka or Kinesis, and utilize multiple cloud providers in a single serverless application.

Now we are looking for a seasoned product manager (or an experienced AWS user and serverless trailblazer who wants to turn their learnings into compelling solutions) to own the product management activities for the Serverless Event Gateway.  Our tight knit team is comprised of user focused, product minded technologists who are low on drama and high on performance. We are distributed by location but united in our purpose. We value accountability and fully own our successes and failures.  Most importantly, we believe that people do their best work when empowered. If you are on a journey to find a team that crafts ingenious cutting edge solutions while having fun together, we are your destination.
