Job Description:

Job Description About Prophecy: Data is the new oil, but getting value out of data remains out of reach for most organizations. We could have said the same a decade ago. Prophecy is simplifying Data Engineering with a powerful yet simple to use platform that is fundamentally fixing the longstanding problem of delivering data for Analytics and Machine Learning reliably and with high quality. Prophecy is trusted by top Fortune 500 firms (including the largest insurer, a top four bank and two of the largest credit card processors) to be their primary Data Engineering platform as they transition from legacy ETL products to the cloud and Apache Spark. Prophecy is backed by top VCs and is defining a new product category. Prophecy's Low-Code Platform enables all the data users to visually build data pipelines using a drag and drop interface. Uniquely, as you do visual programming, Prophecy produces high quality code and this enables data users with software engineering practices - code on Github, tests and continuous delivery. This opens up data engineering to a much larger set of users who can focus on business value instead of wrestling with the infrastructure. You'll be the first Product Management hire and will work with the founders to setup and execute product management and product led growth strategy for the organization. This is a great opportunity for a hands on senior or principal product manager to get experience owning Product Led Growth motion and putting their career at a higher trajectory Product Led Growth Strategy: We built Prophecy hand-in-hand with our first Enterprise customers and it is highly differentiated with good design and exceptional technology. The next step is to make the product led motion work where we already have a head start with strong distribution channels Customer Segments: Understand how the data teams in upper mid-market segment of the market function, compare and contrast their makeup and responsibilities with that of an Enterprise and help shape the offering for the mid-market segment. Be a Customer Champion: Understand the user and her needs with empathy, and bring that knowledge to improve the product, the documentation and product education materials. Product Experience and Analytics: Own the product experience including product on-boarding and product documentation - this will include working hands on with a technical writer to deliver documentation, and working closely with engineering to drive onboarding experience. You'll drive insertion of product metrics, measure usage of the product and tune the machinery to ensure customers get to value and a-ha moment. Product Packaging & Distribution: Work with the leadership team on defining various packages and distribution channels for the software, and work with engineering to ensure that Product Delivery: Work with engineering to ensure the delivered product is easy to use, relatively bug free and solves customer needs Requirements You're a Product Manager with experience in the data space and a commitment to excellence You have seen excellence in product led growth by working in an organization that is very successful with it. Deep understanding of the data space, and a background in ETL and Data Warehousing is a big plus. Attention to detail, diligence and follow-through to get every single thing right is a must have - the entire team must feel pride in excellence. Excellence in delivery is a key area of focus for the company this year. Clarity of thought, clarity of expression and the ability to communicate effectively and drive discussions is a must have. You should also be able to work in a team, get respect and drive results. Writing skills must be very strong, including writing PRDs and documentation - where you can put yourself in the shoes of your reader and build a clear step by step journey. You're energetic and motivated to excel, grow and reach the next level in your career. 5 years in product management and a background in engineering are a must have.
