Core Product Manager at Upbound

The Upbound Core Product Manager is an integral part of both the Upbound Product organization’s efforts to build a world-class Cloud Native Platform and the OSS Crossplane project. In this role you will help platform engineers, DevOps teams and developers consistently manage their cloud platforms. This role is responsible for delivering the core platform that powers the Upbound product, deployed into both Upbound’s Cloud and onto customers’ own infrastructure. Additionally, this role works with the engineering team who owns the extensions to Crossplane - from our providers which interact with the clouds, the newly released compositions functions capability, new add-ons to extend Upbound, tooling such as Upjet, Uptest and migration tooling to help customers adopt our products.

Success in this role will be driving our strategy and execution for extending Upbound’s engine into a world-class managed Crossplane experience. You’ll collaborate with both our open source and product teams to deliver on an end-to-end vision.

In this role you will…

  • Define roadmap and vision for the core engine powering Upbound’s product offering.
  • Create and execute on a vision for making Upbound’s managed Crossplane experience the most trusted way to start, run, and scale Crossplane.
  • Drive provider roadmaps working to help users adopt and use Crossplane to manage the most critical workloads, from AWS, Azure, GCP and more.
  • Manage roadmaps and product deliveries across both open source and commercial open core products focused on extending the reach of Crossplane.
  • Work with the broader Upbound product team to align roadmaps and plans.
  • Work closely with customer service to understand and respond to customer needs.

You are a good fit if you have…

  • Developer background - you can use our products and write code to try out new features
  • Very familiar with Kubernetes and the related ecosystem 
  • Enterprise product management experience
  • 5+ years of Product Management experience 
  • Public examples of code on GH/GL (of any quality, this role isn't shipping production code)
  • Constantly think ‘there has got to be a better way to do this’ about anything

It’s a plus if you have…

  • Have built CLI, API, and SDK products in the past
  • Demonstrated working knowledge of Crossplane
  • Experience creating diagrams and simple illustrations which enhance your content
  • Worked with open source communities and managed public roadmaps
