Program Manager

About Intercom

The way businesses talk to people online is broken. Intercom is fixing it.

Intercom is the first to bring messaging products for sales, marketing & customer service to one platform, helping businesses avoid the stiff, spammy status quo and have real conversations that build real connections. Designed to feel like the messaging apps you use every day, Intercom lets you talk to consumers almost anywhere: inside your app, on your website, across social media and via email. In February 2017, Intercom announced it had surpassed $50M in annual recurring revenue, an increase from $1M in ARR just three years prior, making it one of the fastest-growing companies in tech. Today more than 17,000 businesses use Intercom to connect with a billion people worldwide. Intercom has 300 employees between its San Francisco headquarters, Chicago support office, and Dublin R&D office, and has raised $116M in venture funding.

What's the opportunity?

We’re looking for a program manager to drive the delivery of Intercom’s strategic goals at a cross-functional level.

The program manager role at Intercom is highly visible and spans the whole company - you’ll partner with product managers and engineering managers and work collaboratively with every discipline: designers, engineers, product managers and cross functional teams to make Intercom R&D operationally excellent.

You love bringing structure and order to complex programs, working with people to bridge the gaps across teams and offices and your communication skills are second to none. You get a kick out of seeing your programs run like a well oiled machine.

  • Facilitate decision-making by identifying key stakeholders and surfacing the required information to make critical decisions
  • Coordinate with cross-functional teams ensuring timely input and communication
  • Consult with teams to enable consistent planning and scheduling
  • Implement our R&D build and shipping process while constantly looking for opportunities to streamline it
  • Be a voice of authority when it comes to how we work, and be able to communicate it clearly across all disciplines

What skills do I need?

  • 3+ years of Program Management experience in product/design/agency/web (preferably in tech)
  • A strong understanding of product and design and ideally have worked with design or product teams
  • You’re an excellent self-starter who can deeply collaborate with designers and engineers and other disciplines
