The open source company for JavaScript and GraphQL

Define and ship new products and features while working closely with our engineering team.

Your focus will be on Apollo Engine and its relationship to our Apollo open source projects.

We are proud of our history of creating sophisticated yet approachable products and vibrant developer communities around them. We look for product managers that have an intuition for what makes a great developer experience, a understanding of IT trends, and a passion to understand and solve real customer problems.

  • Work closely with our strategic design partners, including Fortune 500 enterprises and notable startups, on future product directions and features.
  • Communicate and maintain a roadmap for your product area that's aligned with the company's overall strategy. Make sure all stakeholders – our open source developers, customers, partners, and the MDG team – understand our plans at the right level of detail and certainty.
  • Collaborate on company strategy with the executive team and R&D leads.

About you

  • You have been an industry software developer at some point in your career. You understand developers and have an intuition for what makes a great developer experience. You love doing deep dives into your product space and figuring out what makes customers tick.
  • You're able to communicate your ideas clearly and you constantly test and refine them.
  • You are skilled at resolving complex technical conflicts in product scope discussions
  • You understand how to get agreement and buy in on the key product decisions you are responsible for
