Product Management Lead

Job Description

We are seeking an experienced Product Manager to establish the Product Management team at Aptible and lead the vision for our Gridiron product.

This role offers a unique chance to be a significant early member of the Aptible team. Reporting directly to our CTO, you will oversee product vision and the roadmap. You will collaborate across the entire company to drive a unified product strategy, incorporating insights from both internal and external stakeholders. Initially, you will work as an individual contributor, with the potential to build a team as the company grows.

About Aptible

The world is increasingly driven by software, powered by the Internet. Developers worldwide are using web-scale technology to create and deploy applications in healthcare, fintech, banking, payments, IoT, blockchain, machine learning, and other B2B sectors.

Security and compliance are crucial for these developer teams from the start, but many struggle due to limited resources or inadequate existing tools. Aptible addresses this by creating user-focused security products that help developer teams integrate security into their architecture and organizational culture. We currently offer two products: Enclave and Gridiron.

Gridiron acts as the QuickBooks + TurboTax for security management, helping developers design and manage security programs that meet standards like HIPAA, SOC 2, and ISO 27001. Customers use Gridiron to build trust and prepare for certifications. Enclave is a container orchestration platform that automates security best practices for deploying and scaling Dockerized apps in regulated industries.

As the Product Management Lead, you will mainly focus on Gridiron but will also contribute to both products and the broader Aptible team.

  • Own the product vision and roadmap: Act as the CEO of the product, ensuring we build the right product by leading at both strategic and tactical levels.

  • Market and competition analysis: Continuously study the market and competitive landscape to inform our product strategy.
