Senior Product Manager

A full-time hybrid role in Cambridge, UK

As a Senior PM, you’ve likely experienced first-hand the huge benefits of working with a development team that can iterate and deliver quickly as a result of automation and great DevOps practises. At Gearset, we want to bring those benefits to the hundreds of thousands of teams building on top of Salesforce, the platform that underpins the world’s biggest companies.

Salesforce is a fantastic platform that’s well-loved by its customers, but it’s no secret that when it comes to customising and releasing changes, there are significant gaps and rough edges compared to what development teams on other platforms are used to. We start by deeply understanding the core job to be done (One of our core values!) and work collaboratively with our UX team, Product Marketing and engineering to identify the most impactful problem to solve. We have a clear product strategy to guide us and we’re moving quickly, but the opportunity ahead of us is huge! We’d love for you to join our Product team, to help shape and deliver on that strategy.

What’s the opportunity for a Senior Product Manager at Gearset?

  • Join our growing and experienced product team, laser-focused on delighting our users, and always ready and available to support you.
  • Build relationships with our users to form a deep understanding of the domain, and the challenges they're facing with Salesforce. Own one or more product areas, defining the strategy and  defining the roadmaps across them.
  • Partner with engineering leads and UX specialists to research, understand, and solve the problems you identify.
  • Work closely with the engineering teams on defining slices, delivering them iteratively, and learning as you go.

What you’ll achieve

  • You’ll forge strong relationships with our users, and build a deep understanding of their problems, which you’ll use to deliver significant new products and features.
  • You’ll own user problems end-to-end - identification, defining and measuring outcomes, researching and validating possible solutions, delivery, and working closely with marketing and sales to position and bring your solution to market.
  • You’ll ultimately own a product area, articulating the strategy, defining its roadmap, and demonstrating the customer and business impact of delivering that roadmap.
  • You’ll support the product team, and across the wider company, in refining our product definition and development processes, and championing product thinking.
  • As a more senior member of the team, you’ll contribute to steering the product strategy, working closely with the CPO and VP of Product.
  • And you’ll learn from, and share your experience with, a great team from a wide range of backgrounds in a feedback-driven culture where you can do your best work.

About you

  • Have experience of taking multiple ideas through the full product lifecycle, from discovery through to validation and ideally launch, with a mix of problem complexity and scope. 
  • Enjoy talking to users, and have an infectious passion for building products that solve clear user problems in delightful ways
  • Be great at distilling research into key problems, and taking decisions supported by evidence
  • Be great at building momentum of learning, through prioritising delivery over deliberation
  • Enjoy working across disciplines, including developers, designers, marketers and salespeople to build buy-in and inspire them to work on your user problems and solutions together. 

Great to haves

  • Experience working in a B2B SaaS company
  • Some software engineering experience even if only limited

Salary and benefits (the stuff you’d expect!)

  • Salary is £85k - £100k (depending on experience)
  • This is a full time opportunity, working Monday to Friday with the option of flexible home working (for most of us that looks like 2-3 days a month in the office)
  • Generous personal development budget for courses, conferences, or whatever is useful to your professional development in the role, of up to £1500 per year
  • Top-end hardware provided
  • Free lunch in the office
  • 25 days holiday plus bank holidays (with the option to buy an extra 5 each year)
  • Company pension plan (matching up to 5%)
  • Bupa health care
  • Life Insurance & critical illness cover
  • Discounted gym membership, as well as a range of health and wellness benefits
