Notion

March 19, 2021

Platform, OH, US


We make software that anyone can mold and shape to take on every challenge — from taking personal notes to running large companies. We've been building together since 2016 and are trusted by customers including Nike, Airbnb, Slack, Samsung, and more. We're excited to be growing a team as diverse and creative as the millions of people we reach worldwide, and a company where everyone can thrive.
About The Role:
Notion was built by a small team but has a huge surface area, in a number of senses: it can be used for docs, as a wiki, for project management, and more; it's used by individual consumers, small teams, and large enterprises. The beauty and challenge of Notion is that it can be molded to fit an incredible variety of uses and applications. Launching an API and platform products will open up this field even more, and extend our reach in new and unprecedented ways. In this role, you'll:
  • Start at the beginning: Our API is pre-release, so you would lead product in our earliest stages, helping us build our platform products from the ground up and leading us through launch.
  • Build for an engaged community: Our users are extremely creative and passionate about the product and the opportunity to build with our API. You'll have an immediate audience of over 25K developers on our waitlist who are beyond dedicated and enthusiastic.
  • Drive the development of powerful platform experiences: You’ll work closely with engineering, developer advocacy and partnerships to create value for developers, their teams, and users taking advantage of integrations built atop the Notion platform.
What You'll Do:
  • You'll help formulate Notion's long-term product vision, goals, metrics and strategy.
  • You'll translate that strategy into concrete plans and objectives over the short- and medium-term.
  • You'll guide the prioritization of work and help make resourcing and prioritization tradeoffs more generally.
  • You'll build a compelling product roadmap based on customer needs, resources, and strategic opportunities.
  • You'll work closely with our Data Science and Finance teams to ensure we're using the right metrics to inform our product roadmap and to measure success.
  • You'll help design the product function at Notion—what it's responsible for, how it interfaces with other teams, and how it'll grow and develop over time.
What We're Looking For:
  • You have a strong track record of shipping developer-facing products users love.
  • You have experience using both quantitative data (e.g., metrics, analytics) and qualitative data (e.g., user feedback) to inform product prioritization. You can analyze data yourself by writing SQL queries and using data analysis tools.
  • You collaborate well cross-functionally—especially with engineering, marketing, sales, and support—to get an organization working together towards strategic objectives.
  • You have a Computer Science background or equivalent technical experience.
  • You have built, or are committed to building, diverse and inclusive product teams.
Bonus Points:
  • You have experience hiring and managing product managers.
  • You've heard of computing pioneers like Ada Lovelace, Douglas Engelbart, Alan Kay, and others—and understand why we're big fans of their work.
  • You've helped design the product function at a startup and care a lot about shaping (and working in) a high-impact, collaborative organization.
