Technical Product Manager, Dev Ecosystem

Technology is driving change in nearly every company in every industry. As our customers transition to digital enterprises, they require best-of-breed apps to do business and engage with their millions of employees, partners, and customers across web and mobile channels. With Box Platform, we enable developers to create modern enterprise apps that engage users with integrated content experiences. These allow developers to embed native cloud content management, rendering, interaction and collaboration capabilities directly into their apps with very little effort. Our team builds the amazing technologies to power these robust apps and help businesses engage employees and customers in a modern way. 
 
Box is looking for an exceptionally talented coder and product thinker to take on a technical product manager role on our team. In this role, expect to be hands on as a creator, evangelist, and product manager, defining our developer offering and building out the content and code samples to support our developer community. In addition to working with product and engineering to build out new solutions, you will work closely with our evangelist and developer marketing teams, to build scale and efficiency into our services that support developers. For example:
 
  • Identify areas developers need help with and deliver the technical content (code samples, technical guides) that meet those needs. Work with our evangelists and developers to build out this content
  • Analyze product metrics and drive cross product/marketing strategies for increasing developer adoption and engagement
  • Crowdsource automation recipes and technical blueprints from users and developers on best practices
  • Define reference apps that demonstrate what can be built with Box and best practices for application architecture; work with engineering to implement, using latest technologies and best of breed cloud platform services
  • Identify improvements to our APIs and developer tools that make the developer experience more frictionless, create delight in our developer community, and assist developers in solving new use cases with Box Platform
  • Define and drive implementation of developer training and certification
 
This role requires a technical background, innovative design skills, and a collaborative team spirit. Strong candidates are highly analytical and demonstrate design thinking along with great coding skills.  You must be able to operate at a product as well as a very technical level. You will keep up-to-date with cloud and developer trends - everything changes quickly in this space, and we need to be and stay at the forefront. This is a superb opportunity for existing product managers that want to stay up to date on their technical skills or a developer or technical sales or support engineer looking to move into product. 
 
Required Skills
 
  • Strong programmer with coding skills in multiple languages and demonstrated code check-ins and peer review of code (Open Source is great!)
  • Technical aptitude and understanding of modern development best practices
  • Clear understanding of APIs and SDK design best practices

  • Responsive and action oriented person that gets stuff done - self-starter!
  • Exceptional organizational and analytical skills
  • Entrepreneurial spirit to take on challenges and a thirst for learning
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills

  • Proven track record of delivery above and beyond and building amazing things that you are proud of
