  • creating user flow diagrams and user stories based on the knowledge gathered during discovery phase and further analysis;

What’s to be done?


After becoming the leader in the industry, CKSource was acquired in 2021 by PSG, a private equity fund investing in growing software companies. There is a lot of potential in what else we could do and how we could do things better, that’s why we decided to strengthen the product management part of the company. Believe it or not, we reached close to $10m of ARR without a single Product Manager. Product management was split into multiple experienced people, which worked but is inefficient and limiting as we grow further. By joining us as the first person in this position, you have a chance to take a key part in product development.


Help us choose you!


1. Explain shortly why you are the best candidate for this position. Please keep in mind that:

  • we have a portfolio of very complex software products
  • our products are not only ready-to-use applications but primarily complex APIs consumed by developers
  • our target audience is mostly developers, and sales calls oftentimes cover the technical internals of our products and the way they relate to various web frameworks

2. Answer this question: How well do you know the software industry, SaaS, web applications, and ways to reach developers? 


If you don’t have several years of experience working in the software industry around software products, that’s a must-have to have your application considered.


In return we offer:

 

  • competitive salary;
  • fully remote position or work from offices in Warsaw/Poznan (up to you);
  • flexible working hours - you start at the time that suits you. If you need to go out during the day - no problem;
  • B2B agreement or equivalent with a contract of employment;
  • a quarterly and annual financial bonus depending on the company's performance;
  • additional days off and financial resources for personal development (up to 5 days and 6.000 PLN yearly, depending on the work experience);
  • all necessary equipment such as laptop, additional monitor and accessories;
  • private medical care if you are based in Poland (Enel Med or Medicover).
