Staff Product Manager, New Product

San Francisco, California


Our mission at Databricks is to be the generational Data and AI company. Databricks has created a new market category of the Data Lakehouse (CIDR 2021 paper), an open platform that unifies data warehousing, ELT, advanced analytics, and AI. The Lakehouse architecture addresses several major challenges, including data staleness, reliability, total cost of ownership, data lock-in, and limited use-case support. 

This is a unique opportunity to spearhead the inception of an innovative product line and have a huge impact on the entire lakehouse ecosystem. We are looking for a seasoned product visionary who can set the strategic direction and rally multiple stakeholders to actualize an unmatched multi-cloud lakehouse. Intrigued? Let’s chat!
