Associate Product Manager, Realm

New York City

When MongoDB acquired Realm, one of the most popular mobile databases with 100k+ developers and 2BN+ downloads, we set out together to change the future of application development.  Now we're looking for an engineer with a passion for mobile development and a love of complex, high-level problems to help guide the developer experience we're building.  

As an APM for Realm, you'll help us build and perfect frameworks for the Realm community and extend this work into the cloud, enabling developers to build powerful applications as quickly and simply as possible.  

We hope you'll be excited to

  • Approach Realm's development experience with a love of code and an eye for detail
  • Engage with cutting-edge technologies, customers, and development communities to predict where the state of application development is headed
  • Work at the product level, but dig into code regularly – whether it's collaborating with engineering to perfect syntax on a new feature, helping a customer debug an issue, or reviewing code samples for documentation

Expectations

As an APM for Realm, you will be responsible for:

  • Working alongside engineering to define new features for Realm SDKs
  • Building relationships with Realm customers and the development community
  • Mapping and identifying improvements in a user experience that spans application code, tooling, and backend infrastructure
  • Coordinating with teams across MongoDB to clearly communicate and champion for the application developer experience 
  • Providing qualitative and quantitatively measures of Realm's success

Success Measures

In 3 months, you'll have gained a deep understanding of MongoDB, Realm, and their respective communities as well as conducting competitive and market research

In 6 months, you'll have identified and created plans for key improvements to Realm through working with customers and the community, helping add to our roadmap.  You'll also help us launch MongoDB Realm, our upcoming platform for mobile development, into public beta

In 12 months, you'll have helped design and ship major features in Realm and be able to measure success with qualitative and quantitative feedback

Requirements

  • BS in Computer Science, or equivalent experience
  • 2+ years of development experience
