The Special Projects team is looking for a Product Manager to help us identify opportunities to have a positive, high impact towards a wide range of GitHub experiences and products while also helping us prioritize and make hard decisions. You will need to use your judgement to help drive decisions alongside your peers in Engineering and Design. In this role, you won’t own a complete product or area; instead, you will have the opportunity to directly impact and improve a wide variety of experiences across GitHub.

Job Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate within your team. You will work together with a small team of engineers and designers to deliver a multitude of features. At any given time, you will need to provide your guidance and drive features across a multitude of product areas.
  • Deliver the best work in a limited time span. You will need to listen to diverse perspectives and work with others to move forward to ship secure, maintainable, and consistent features. You will need to show a resourceful, driven attitude when taking on tasks while balancing pragmatic solutions against our team’s time box.
  • Represent the customer. You need to be the champion and voice of customers in every conversation. You will build direct relationships with customers and you will immerse yourself in customer feedback. You will also build processes to ensure everyone on our team understands the needs of our customers.
  • Ruthlessly prioritize. You will work together with the Engineering leader and the rest of the team to make tactical prioritization decisions while helping the team think long-term.
  • Collaborate and build trust across teams. Your success will require coordination across multiple teams and domains at GitHub, across product, design, engineering, marketing, PR and customer-facing roles such as sales and support.

Job Requirements:

  • Strong technical abilities including experience with developer tools, particularly git.
  • Passionate and self-motivated, with a demonstrated ability to work in a fast-paced environment.
  • Strong communication skills, with clear verbal communication as well as explicit and mindful written communication skills.
  • Skill and enthusiasm for translating customer feedback into actionable priorities with an eye to pragmatic solutions.
  • Strong organizational skills, both at an individual and team level.
  • 3-5+ years of engineering, design, product management, or equivalent experience with demonstrated ability to discover opportunities and define and deliver products.
  • Entrepreneurial thinking and the ability to act effectively with only high-level direction.
  • Experience working across organizations with Sales, Marketing, Support, Product, Engineering and Design.
