Product Manager

Product Managers at Redgate come up with and validate new tools and features that improve our ingeniously simple software and make our customers even more awesome at what they do.

Our Product Managers have one foot firmly planted in software development and the other in our commercial strategy. They feel a strong sense of responsibility for the commercial success of their products, and to help achieve success they work closely with the development, marketing, and sales teams, alongside other Product Managers from across the business. We're now looking to hire one new person for this linchpin role.

The role needs someone with the technical and commercial experience to join a team working on several products – ranging from established market-leading products with a very large number of users, all the way to new products taking their first steps in the market. You'll drive innovation and conduct research into future development, and whilst we aren't necessarily looking for specific experience in the SQL Server or .NET development domains, any such experience would be a benefit.

What makes you a Redgate Product Manager?

  • You've got in-depth knowledge of relevant technologies, competitors, and market trends, or a strong desire to keep up-to-date with developments there.
  • You have a powerful blend of technical and commercial expertise, irrespective of how you achieved it.
  • You're particularly interested in the commercial aspects of software.
  • Your communication and consensus-building skills are first-rate, and you have strong, creative problem-solving skills too.
  • You're experienced in visiting and talking to customers.
  • You've got the passion and enthusiasm to act as a technical evangelist for your products, internally and externally.
  • You have a strong strategic vision for your products, coupled with the intuition and insight to spot tactical issues that need your involvement.
  • You're confident presenting a business case to management.

What experience do you have?

  • Strong commercial experience of analysing market opportunities and building business proposals to exploit those opportunities.
  • Direct experience of product management is strongly desired, ideally in a software development organisation.
  • A strong technical background with development/coding experience.

What would really help?

  • Experience in the SQL Server and/or .NET development domains.

What's the package?

  • A great benefits package.
  • Salary is negotiable, depending on experience.
  • You'll work about 40 hours a week, with flexible work time.

Step 1
Step 1. Application

Step one is your application. So write a letter and upload it on the page for the job you’re interested in. Tell us about yourself, your skills and experience, and talk about why you’d like to work at Redgate. Include a CV, or a link to your LinkedIn page, and if you'd like to show some of your work, attach your portfolio or point us to Stack Overflow or GitHub.

Step 2
Step 2. Assessment

We’ll acknowledge your application straight away, review it and keep you updated on your progress. We might also email an assessment to complete, or invite you for a brief telephone interview. If we don’t think you’re suitable, we’ll inform you – and tell you why. We won’t let you down, we’ll try and help you.

Step 3
Step 3. 1st Interview

Step three is an interview in our Cambridge office. We’ll talk about your work history, your covering letter or video, and any assessments you’ve completed. You might also be asked to do some work-based tests and, if you’re applying for a technical role, expect technical questions – we love talking tech.

Step 4
Step 4. 2nd Interview

The second interview typically lasts two hours. You’ll be talking to different people, you may well meet people you’ll be working with, and we’ll allow time for you to ask questions. We don’t have a dress code at Redgate, by the way, so dress in whatever makes you comfortable.

Step 1
Step 5. Offer

If we think you’d be great at Redgate, we’ll make an offer and iron out any details like relocation issues. If we don’t think you’ll fit in right away, we’ll tell you why. Some people have taken our advice, boned up their knowledge and come back a year later and got a job. It helps.

This is our typical recruitment process, though for some roles it might be a bit different.
