As the first full-time Product Manager (PM) at Stellate, you will play a pivotal role in driving the growth of our products. We’re looking for a highly motivated and experienced PM to oversee the entire product lifecycle in strategy and execution. Our product philosophy and processes are shaped by Teresa Torres and her “Continuous Discovery” methods.
The mission of Stellate’s product department is to enable and empower everyone to build successful products that execute against Stellate’s mission of bringing superpowers to large-scale GraphQL APIs.
About Us And The Hard Problems We Are Solving
At Stellate, we’re working towards a vision of unlocking the world’s data. We are on a mission to bring superpowers to large-scale GraphQL APIs. We believe GraphQL is the best way to access data at large-scale companies.
GraphQL turns APIs from a list of endpoints into graphs. This shift in the representation of the data from a mere list of endpoints to a graph leads to the main benefit of GraphQL: flexibility in access to your data. This flexibility also explains the main tradeoff of GraphQL in the form of unique challenges to building and operating APIs at large-scale, including performance, security, maintenance and scalability.
GraphQL is based on a strict specification that every GraphQL API follows. This allows us to build tools that help with these challenges once and then sell them to everybody using GraphQL that needs them! That’s why our mission is to bring superpowers to large-scale GraphQL APIs: build the superpower once; power up everybody that needs it!
Our current main product is GraphQL Edge Caching, which allows companies in certain industries to significantly speed up their response times, improve their scalability (particularly during traffic spikes), and save costs.
The main responsibility of our PM is to shape the product vision, translate it into a cohesive roadmap, and work closely with cross-functional teams to ensure successful delivery and, thus, successful outcomes.
As of today, we are focused on increasing the value our customers get and speeding up how quickly they see the value from our GraphQL edge caching product. At some later point, the scope will expand to setting a roadmap for creating more products that bring superpowers to large-scale GraphQL APIs.
This role will report to our co-founder and CTO, Tim Suchanek. Here are some of the things you would be responsible for:

As a fully distributed company, we’ve made a bold decision not to anchor pay to employees’ physical location, no matter where they are in the world. You can find out more about our “One Job, One Pay” on our company blog.
We also believe that pay transparency is a diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging initiative, as well as the best way for a company our size to hold ourselves accountable to a fair pay policy.
The compensation range for this role is between $155K (Level 3) – $220K (Level 6) annually, based on current market data.
Don’t Meet Every Single Requirement?
Studies have shown that women and people of color are less likely to apply to jobs unless they meet every single qualification. At Stellate we are dedicated to building a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace, so if you’re excited about this role but your past experience doesn’t align perfectly with every qualification in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyways. You may be just the right candidate for this or other roles.
