About the opportunity

As a Product Manager in the Creators & Orchestrators Group, together with a cross-functional team of designers, researchers, and engineers, you will be responsible for driving the strategy of the editing and coordination features that help our customers build great digital experiences. As Contentful transitions from a successful B2B Saas startup to a “scale-up” company, our group is responsible for expanding the customer and revenue base beyond developers (who have traditionally been our strongest advocates) into other important marketing, creative, and business functions.

What to expect?

  • Own and understand customers and stakeholders’ needs and pain points. Then size, prioritize, and work with your cross-functional team to envision and build the very best solutions.
  • Collaborate with Design, Research, and Engineering to define, scope, and deliver the right solutions iteratively.
  • Collaborate with other Product Managers to tackle ambitious initiatives that span multiple product teams.
  • Use data to demonstrate the scope of opportunities you uncover.
  • Work with Product Marketing and business teams to make pricing, packaging, and business model decisions that contribute to customer success and revenue growth. 
  • Work with the Contentful management team to make investments in the opportunities you discover.
  • Communicate broadly to the company about upcoming plans and opportunities, and be an evangelist for your team’s interests within the company.

What you need to be successful?

  • You’re a Product Manager with at least 3 years of experience building and bringing B2B SaaS products to market, ideally in the content management, web development, or publishing industries.

  • You have the technical knowledge needed to work effectively with backend, frontend, and infrastructure engineers.
  • Ability to analyze both usage data and qualitative feedback to draw conclusions and make recommendations.

What's in it for you?
