Engineering Manager, New Product - San Francisco

Postmanaut using robotics to design A P I. Illustration.

The Opportunity:

With Postman Insights, our vision is to help guide a developer with little previous experience—in both the system being monitored and the Postman API Platform—to productively find and fix issues. Our goal is to be able to help any developer locate API endpoints causing potential issues within 15 minutes of signing up for an account. This will empower even a new developer to find and fix issues in their first days on the job, as easily as they can call an API today.

As we work with our early users to shape the product, we’re looking for a product-focused engineering manager to take our team to the next level. The main responsibilities for this role include ruthlessly prioritizing the engineering roadmap towards building our MVP during the alpha and helping scale both the product and the team as we build out the beta. As we grow, there is opportunity to become the engineering lead building out the Observability department at Postman.
