Head of Product

With 40+ million downloads on Docker and 12.000+ stars on GitHub, Traefik, the reverse proxy for microservice architectures, is one of the most successful open source products ever!

We are now hiring our Head of Product, with the ambition to grow Traefik into a world leading solution in the enterprise infrastructure space. Directly reporting to the CEO and working in close relationship with the CEO and CTO, you’ll lead and deploy the Product Strategy (positioning, packaging, roadmap) and the Business Model (go-to-market, pricing) of the Company.

Who are you?

You love Product Strategy, Open Source and SaaS infrastructure software.

You are a creative, pragmatic, result-oriented, entrepreneur.

You’re excited to join an early stage venture with a field-proven, best of breed technology where you’ll be able to deploy your strategic and execution skills with maximum ambition and impact.

Product Marketing strategy and go-to-market planning have no secrets to you, as demonstrated by successful, relevant past experiences. Team spirit is your second name and you interact as naturally with C-level execs as with kernel developers or dev ops.

You master sales cycle and channel mix analysis in both freemium and SaaS models. You excel at understanding market forces and transforming hard-core technologies into business opportunities. You can define innovative communications strategy and develop effective material to support your plans.

Oh, you are fluent in English but French would be a serious plus.

What this adventure will offer you

We offer you the rare opportunity to join a technology-based, VC-backed venture, in a buoyant space, when Product Marketing Fit has been largely proven (with millions of downloads, growing super fast), and just when Business scalability starts. You will be instrumental in bringing the Product and the Company to this next stage, with the ambition of growing an international leader.

Depending on your experience and ambition, this position can extend from Product Marketing Manager up to Chief Product Officer with full leadership on the Product plan and Go to Market strategy.

You’ll be eligible to equity in the Company.

You’ll lead a multicultural adventure between Europe and the USA.
