Senior Product Manager

Job Description

(Fully remote, async-first, DevOps SaaS, 32-40h/week, time zones: UTC-3 to UTC+3)

Join Checkly, the company behind Monitoring as Code (MaC). We’re a fully remote startup on a mission to enable developers to detect and resolve issues 10x faster through code-driven synthetic monitoring. In other words, Checkly lets you know if something is wrong with your production website or API even before your end-users know. We’re a group of (mostly) engineers who love to ship quality stuff fast using the best tech for the job.

Thousands of developers are using Checkly already, including those at Vercel, Render, Sentry, 1Password, Crowdstrike, Deno, Autodesk and AutoTrader. We have recently been recognized by Gartner for our role in starting the shift to Monitoring as Code.

We care about building a team where people of all backgrounds are encouraged to do their best work. To achieve this we built a flexible, fully remote and async-first startup environment with inclusive benefits.
