Your Opportunity

We're looking for a top-tier leader with a background in Product Management, DevOps/Ops, or Development who cares deeply about elegantly solving the observability challenges faced by modern developers and operators.

With over 2 billion data points every minute, we run one of the largest SaaS data collection and analytics platforms in the world. As a (Sr. or Principal) Field PM on the Telemetry Platform, you'll be working closely with the customer to both share our vision and understand their observability challenges. You’ll use this intimate knowledge of the challenges our customers face to help shape our roadmap and strategy and to provide necessary context to our teams.

At New Relic, you will be a core leader in the team, responsible for driving product strategy and vision, maintaining strong relationships with customers and our partner ecosystem, working with Engineering to deliver breakthrough products, and growing the business in partnership with Marketing, Sales, and Customer Success teams.

In a typical day, you might talk to a user or buyer about their challenges, the VP of Engineering about cost optimization, a Product Marketing Manager on the story we share with the market, another Product Manager about a feature request and whiteboard a design with a Designer or Software Architect.

Sound like fun? Great! We’re looking for an experienced leader who’s worked to successfully deliver features at scale. You know how to work with the field, engineers, and executives, and have a good sense of when to capture more data and when to make a decision and move forward. If you haven’t been a Product Manager, maybe you’ve had similar responsibilities as an engineering leader or in another role.
