Staff Product Manager, GitHub Actions

Posted Apr 15


GitHub is changing the way the world builds software, and we want you to help build GitHub!


The Actions team is on a mission to help developers & organizations increase their value delivery velocity. We’re building world class tools that enable the automation of any software workflow to build, test, and deploy code right from GitHub. More customers are moving their workflows to Actions and we’re looking for a Staff Product Manager to work across design and engineering to make sure Actions is the best option for continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) and to build features that help scale Actions to the largest organizations on the planet.

What you will be doing:

  • Own the product strategy and execution roadmap for your area. You will be responsible for specific areas of the Actions product and defining a strategy that aligns with customer needs and GitHub’s goals. You will translate that strategy into an execution plan and a roadmap to achieve both the customer needs and product goals.
  • Represent the customer. You will be the champion and voice of customers in every conversation. You will build direct relationships with customers as well as immersing yourself in customer feedback.
  • Collaborate across teams. Your success will require coordination across multiple teams and domains at GitHub. You will play a critical role creating alignment between core Actions experiences, our compute platform, and the wider GitHub organization, especially our revenue organization.
  • Data-driven decision making. Analyze data for trends and potential customer pain points, and use this to prioritize and inform how to improve the product. Go back to the data when needed to answer questions.
  • Measure success. Own the measures used to define success for your area and align them to department and business objectives. You will define success metrics at the inception of an initiative and track their performance. You will make measures visible to all stakeholders and interpret them into actionable conclusions and new hypotheses to drive future work.
  • Evangelize your product area. You will spend time presenting on your product area and how it fits into broader market trends, both internally and external to GitHub.

You might be a fit if:

  • You have 5-7+ years of engineering or product management experience, or the equivalent customer-facing expertise with demonstrated ability to discover opportunities and define and deliver products.
  • You are intimately familiar with CI/CD or adjacent tools in the modern software development ecosystem and understand the needs of individual developers, as well as large teams of developers.
  • You possess strong communication skills, with clear verbal communication as well as explicit and mindful written communication skills. You have good business acumen and the gravitas necessary to present business cases to non-technical stakeholders and get buy-in for your plans.
  • You have strong technical abilities and a track record of working through complex technical problems. You are comfortable with a high level of ambiguity and can reduce that ambiguity through sound judgment, scoping down requirements in order to make necessary tradeoffs in order to have the largest impact.
  • You have experience working deeply with multiple organizational functions like Sales, Marketing, Support, Engineering and Design.
  • You have a track record of being able to work autonomously, holding yourself accountable to outcomes rather than outputs.

Bonus points if:

  • You are passionate about the CI/CD space, developer tools, and developers as a primary persona.
  • You are passionate about the opportunities unlocked by cloud computing and the opportunities presented by technologies from traditional VMs to Kubernetes and serverless technologies.
  • You are passionate about the craft of product management, have spoken or written about it before, and can mentor others in building a high-performing product culture.
  • You are passionate about GitHub and the opportunities that lie ahead of us.
