Ambassador Labs (formerly Datawire), the cloud native developer experience leader, enables developers to code, ship, and run applications faster and easier than ever. Maker of top Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open source projects, including Emissary-ingress and Telepresence, Ambassador Labs delivers a developer control plane for Kubernetes that integrates the development, deployment, and production infrastructure for developers and organizations worldwide including Microsoft, PTC, NVidia, and Ticketmaster. Ambassador Labs is backed by top investors including Insight Partners, Matrix Partners, Trinity Ventures, and Four Rivers Group.
Ambassador Labs is solving interesting problems for cloud native developers in the Kubernetes space. Our mission is to make the complexities of developing, deploying, and operating micro-services on Kubernetes as straightforward as doing so on your own laptop.
About the role
We’ve been successful at building and growing our products with ad-hoc product management, but we want to grow even faster. So, we’re looking for someone whose focus is solely on accelerating our product growth and usage. We’re looking for you: someone with a passion for understanding developers, collaborating across teams, and creating great products.
You’ll own the product experience and user activation journey for our flagship cloud product, working closely with the marketing, developer relations, and engineering teams. You’ll also help refine our processes around how we operate and coordinate with your counterparts in design and engineering and marketing.
We believe passionately in product-led growth as our go-to-market model, and have designed our products and organization accordingly. We’ve worked hard to align our marketing, product, sales, and engineering into a full PLG model, and you’ll play a critical role in driving our product growth.
Ambassador Labs is experiencing tremendous growth which makes this rare first Product Manager opportunity both fun and challenging.
How to Apply
We are looking forward to hearing from you. We move quickly and decisively. We don’t need to talk to 20 other candidates to make a decision, so if the fit feels right on both sides, we will make it happen! The first step is speaking to our People Person. Our interview process for this Head of Product Growth role is more rigorous than for some of other roles and includes a process and working style interview, a real-time product iteration exercise, review of your professional writing, and your talking to key team members. We want to hear about your real-life experience and successes, especially the products that you’ve shipped and the users that you’ve made happy.
We strongly believe that Ambassador Labs’ success is dependent on hiring a diverse team. Diversity means a broader spectrum of opinions, ways of working and approaches to solving problems; we feel it is critical to helping drive the creativity, innovation and sound decision-making our customers love us for!
This is a demanding application process and a significant career move that’s well worth considering. We appreciate you giving us that consideration, and we promise to give you our full attention in return. Talk to you soon!
