Senior Product Manager

A full-time hybrid role in Cambridge, United Kingdom

As a 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.

It’s an exciting time to join Gearset! In the last few years we’ve rocketed from a 7 person start-up to nearly 240 people, and we’re only just getting started. If you’re a talented PM looking to build world-class products, Gearset’s a great place to be.

We always start by building a deep understanding of the user, their domain, and the problem they’re trying to solve. We work in cross-functional teams, which include PMs, UX people, and Engineers, to iterate on our understanding of the problem and validate potential solutions. Our Engineers care deeply about building the right solutions rather than just shipping features, and they love to deliver in small slices, so that we can learn and iterate quickly. And we combine this focus on the job to be done (one of our core values!) with a healthy aversion to unnecessary process, meaning your time will be spent identifying key user problems and delivering delightful solutions.

Best of all, we've got a large, passionate, and highly-engaged customer base who love to jump on calls with us to get deep into the details of their problems, and to test prototypes and product slices. And those customers span all segments, ranging from small businesses, to some of the world’s biggest companies, with lots of household names that we’re proud to work with, for good measure. You’ll be solving problems faced by hundreds of thousands of people developing on top of Salesforce, and dramatically improving the performance of their teams.

Our culture of trust, transparency, and collaboration, means everyone at Gearset is given the autonomy to succeed. And our product-led approach means you’ll be building high-impact products that solve our customers’ biggest problems.

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. In short, there’s no shortage of interesting problems for us to tackle, and opportunities to delight! 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.
