Product Team

Informing product decisions that delight developers.

Our product is constantly evolving. We aim to create the best possible user experience, taking full advantage of innovations in cloud technology. Our job is to know what our customers want before they do and carry that context to inform product decisions that delight developers and simplify their lives.

Core Platform

Our mission

We deliver the simplest core cloud platform that is highly available, reliable, secure, and performance focused cloud primitives. We are the foundation that other upstack services rely on to drive sustainable growth and maximize return on capital.

You can find our team working on:

  • Talking with our customers (developers) to understand the full breadth of jobs they do, tools they use, and challenges they face
  • Working hand in hand with our Product Design team to deliver user interactions that meet and exceed our promise of simplicity
  • Defining an end-to-end solution that makes it simple for developers to deploy and maintain their applications. Driving delivery of that solution through building new features, partnering, and simplifying the use of open source technologies

What we look for:

Entrepreneurial product managers that have experience with IaaS, PaaS or SaaS products and platforms. We want candidates who possess technical acumen to work with engineering and infrastructure teams, excellent user research skills, an eye for simple and effective user flows, and the ability to cut quickly to the heart of a problem. Experience as an agile product owner is a big plus.

“Whether we're tweaking business cases, researching burgeoning markets or pointing to the future through roadmaps, the Product team sits at the center of the action. DigitalOcean is building one of the most productive and well-resourced product teams in the world, outfitted with designers, data partners, marketing leaders and more to help facilitate a focused product development organization.”

Senior Product Manager

"Working in Product at DO helps me answer the question 'What do you want to be when you grow up?' truthfully. I'm able to play the wizard behind the curtain, simplifying infrastructure complexity to make user-friendly products that developers can use to build their applications on. Access to an engaged customer base helps me experiment, iterate, and course correct missteps so that in the end, I build products that customers can get enthusiastic and opinionated about. I also feel fortunate to be working with some of the brightest minds in the industry. Thanks to a very open and nurturing company culture, I can achieve all of this without having to compromise on my other roles of being a working mother and wife!"

App Services

Our mission

In a world where cloud computing is continuing to abstract away from the underlying hardware, teams of developers will be able to build and run their applications without having to think about their infrastructure. The App Framework Services team will deliver interfaces that give our customers a development focused view instead of an infrastructure focused view.

You can find our team working on:

  • Talking with our customers (developers) to understand the full breadth of jobs they do, tools they use, and challenges they face
  • Working hand in hand with our Product Design team to deliver user interactions that meet and exceed our promise of simplicity
  • Defining an end-to-end solution that makes it simple for developers to deploy and maintain their applications
  • Driving delivery of that solution through building new features, partnering, and simplifying the use of open source technologies

What we look for:

Entrepreneurial product managers that have experience with application development, app frameworks, or application platforms.

"DigitalOcean's superpower is keeping customer focused. Our teams are always searching for ways to improve the lives of developers as they navigate the complexities of the Cloud. It's not easy keeping things simple, but we love seeing all of the amazing projects our customers ship."
