It's fun to work in a company where people truly BELIEVE in what they're doing!

We're committed to bringing passion and customer focus to the business.

At WP Engine, we are obsessed with building positive customer experiences and outcomes. We are in the midst of crafting new and delightful product experiences, which deliver tremendous value to our customers. We are seeking a customer inspired product manager to help prioritize and deliver our long-term roadmap for Customer Identity and Access Management (CIAM). You’ll be responsible for serving thousands of customers, including some of the biggest brands in the world.

What's cool about this job

The right person will have a sense for technology and can tackle customer and business problems. They will be hyper curious about our customers and identifying their pain points in pursuit of a secure and reliable CIAM experience. They will help lead both the day-to-day details and contribute to the overall strategy of their products. They will also have natural leadership skills and an interest in evangelizing an agile and product mindset throughout the organization to build a real passion for our products and our business.

The day to day
  • Talking with customers, users, and internal partners to identify and prioritize new features and functionality that should be included in the product

  • Work closely with the engineering teams to design, schedule and deliver new features in an agile environment

  • Write excellent user-stories, with thoughtful acceptance criteria, that can be translated into engineering features

  • Prioritizing the work of the product team, managing the backlog, and juggling new requests from customers and stakeholders

  • Use data to develop high-quality insights into our customer’s user experience

  • Work with stakeholders to prepare their teams to support our product strategy

  • Serve as the authority and evangelist for the products and features you own

  • Continuously build on your domain expertise by reading industry blogs, reports, and other sources of knowledge to develop a sound perspective on technologies available to our business

  • Be a great teammate to the other members of your Agile Scrum team

Your skills and expertise
  • 1+ years of consumer or enterprise internet software product management experience, preferably supporting internal teams

  • Natural problem solving abilities, an inquisitive personality, and an eagerness to tackle new challenges

  • A bias for action, iterative development, and learning over “perfection”

  • Ability to work with UX to turn complex problems into well crafted, effortless experiences

  • High attention to detail and experience leading multiple, contending priorities simultaneously

  • History of teamwork and willingness to roll up one's sleeves to push things over the finish line

  • Ability to work directly with Engineers to turn design and prototypes into releasable products

  • Passionate about collaborating with cross-functional teams to determine what solution best fits the customer’s needs

  • Excited by the flexibility and dynamic nature of a fast-paced environment

Bonus points if you…
  • Are a great storyteller that can inspire customers (and the company) around the future of our products

  • Are excited about the prospect of working on fundamental CIAM features like Single Sign-On, user roles, and permissions.

At WP Engine, we strive to have the broadest possible view of diversity, going beyond visible differences to include the background, experiences, skills, and perspectives that make each person unique. WP Engine is proud to be an equal opportunity workplace and is committed to equal employment opportunity regardless of race, color, ancestry, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, age, citizenship, marital status, disability, gender identity, Veteran status, or any other basis protected by federal, state, or local law. ​
