At Stack Overflow, we are obsessed with serving developers. Whether we’re helping developers get answers to their questions or find a new job, we build products that make millions of developers’ lives better every day. The not so secret ingredient to building great products is having exceptional product managers. Our product management team has grown from 3 to 8 in the past year and we’re looking for a VP of Product to help this team continue to scale.

You’ll be tasked with building and managing a product management team that collaborates with engineering, marketing, and other key functions within the organization to deliver products that are used by developers worldwide. You’ll own the product strategy and empower your PMs by solving problems so they can deliver on that vision. It will be your responsibility to ensure that our products are well-coordinated, ship on time, fit in market, and have a clear go-to-market strategy.

We like to work in public.  Not only does that mean being open within the company about what the product team is building, we also try and bring the developer community in as soon as we’re able.  Some examples of big projects our team is currently working on with the community:

We’re looking to hire the right person wherever you are in the world. We work remotely so you can work from home and interact with the team over Google Hangouts and chat, usually during US or European working hours. We have offices in New York, London and Denver, so if you’re in (or want to relocate to) one of those cities you can, and our offices are awesome.

What you’ll do:

  • Hire, train, and mentor a distributed team of product managers
  • Take responsibility for the discipline of new product development
  • Collaborate with PMs & executives to define product direction & strategy
  • Streamline and standardize product management processes across teams
  • Work cross-functionally with marketing & sales team to develop go-to-market strategies

What we want to see:

  • A deep understanding of Stack Overflow and other Stack Exchange network sites
  • Experience defining strategies for building & shipping web software
  • Demonstrated product leadership determining multiple product roadmaps
  • Experience building and leading a Product team

About Stack Overflow

Our goal is to make the Internet a better place to get expert answers to your questions. We’ve done a lot of that with Stack Overflow, but we think there’s still more to do.

We believe in hiring smart people and getting out of their way. We have an office in New York with some of the best amenities of any New York startup, and we have people who work remotely all over the world. We keep meetings and ceremony to an absolute minimum, and will never poke you with a sharp stick.
