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:

  • 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.

PaaS

Our mission

In a world where cloud computing continues to abstract away from the underlying hardware, teams of developers should be able to build and run their applications without having to think about their infrastructure. The PaaS team delivers managed services 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.

We collaborate with product designers, product managers, and engineers to make our product easier to use. And we set our own direction about how we design and deliver product documentation."close quote
