At Twilio, our mission is to power the future of communications. We believe that communications should be a part of every product experience. In the Programmable Messaging and Notifications product line, we're doing that by providing the tools to build unique messaging communication experience for SMS and MMS. To help us on our journey, we're seeking a senior product person to define and execute against this giant vision.

You should be prepared to spend some days writing specs, drawing mockups, and working with the development teams to bring your vision to life. You should be prepared to spend other days speaking with Twilio customers, whether to support sales or to do research for the next product or feature. You will either bring to the table your experience launching products, or you will work with us to develop that skill set. And in the spirit of our company values, you should have the humility to accept guidance and support from your peers throughout the company.
We are looking for candidates at any level of seniority. That said, these specific requirements apply:
- 2+ years of experience as a product manager, project manager, or tech lead for a technology company.
