Product Manager

Full Time

Traefik Labs is built to simplify the adoption of Cloud-Native technologies. We are a VC-backed company that develops leading cloud-native networking solutions for Open Source lovers and leading Enterprises. The company’s popular open-source projects include Traefik Proxy, the cloud-native application proxy with more than 3 billion downloads, and used by the world’s largest companies.

This role will suit a technically-minded engineer, report directly to product leadership, and have you focusing on opportunities for the whole of Traefik's product line, working closely with counterparts in engineering, marketing, and sales to steer product directions. We have ambitious goals based on a deliberate, explicit product strategy, and we need help from you to make it happen. You’ll start with Traefik's vision and go forth to understand the market, form hypotheses, drive discovery, build the roadmap, and iterate your way toward solutions that will amaze and delight our customers and community.

This role would be a good fit for someone who:

  • Cares deeply about users and their needs.
    A strong candidate for this role will naturally gravitate toward wanting to understand users, what pains them and pleases them, and will be relentlessly advocating for their best interests in the product. You will feel comfortable proactively reaching out to users, and your engagement will be tuned toward empathy and understanding.
  • Is curious and creative.
    You’ll be taking directional guidance and using it as the basis for chartering your product discovery adventures. You find ambiguity inspiring and are driven to navigate your way through it to a place of clarity. You value making space for learning before pushing toward a solution.
  • Has a background in Kubernetes, Amazon EKS, API gateways and management, and/or similar cloud-native domain knowledge.
  • Knows how to think big, and build small.
    You are equally at home setting a vision and identifying small pieces of value that can be delivered iteratively. You enjoy spinning plates and shepherding product work through its entire lifecycle, from early prototype to GA.
  • Synthesizes and distills signals to create focus.
    Traefik’s large community, users, and employees alike are treasure troves of great ideas and feedback. We’d like you to have a knack for listening to all of it, identifying patterns, and aligning signals with our product strategy and goals. The product manager we’re hoping to find will not be easily distracted by streams of information incoming from many directions.
  • Values clear, open communication.
    We see clear, thoughtful, and regular communication (including a willingness to give and receive feedback) as a fundamental skill, not just a nice to have — and we hope you do too. This role sits at the intersection of several teams and our users, making communication especially important.
  • Likes being a generalist.
    We’re a small team at Traefik, so there will be plenty of opportunities to jump around and help out with many areas of our product efforts. Our ideal candidate will enjoy a bit of variety in your work and not find it too distracting to help out with other projects from time to time.
  • Has some experience.
    For this role, there's a minimum of 2 years of professional experience as a product manager or a sales engineering position. Generally, we find that product managers who have worked in startups and/or who have focused on B2B software are most likely to be successful at Traefik.
