Director of Product Management ENGINEERING - Full Time - Boston, MA

ChaosSearch is a Boston-based, venture-backed, cloud data search and analytics company. We are located across the street from TD Garden — a 60 second walk from North Station and the Orange Line.

Our teams at ChaosSearch are fast-paced, breed ambition, challenge ordinary thinking, push the pace of innovation, all with a goal of building a truly disruptive data platform. ChaosSearch is growing fast and we’re looking for a Director of Product Management. We are passionate about our people, about data, innovation, our values and culture. We’re looking for someone with a growth mindset and the pragmatic insight to solve for today while building for the future.

ChaosSearch started with a clear vision: build a disruptive data platform on cloud storage that re-defines data access. Existing data platforms are siloed and broken, and customers struggle with cost, complexity, data movement and scale. ChaosSearch has developed an innovative product with a new built-for-the-cloud architecture that includes a revolutionary multi-model data index that supports both Search and SQL, a distributed data fabric that separates storage from compute, all based on scalable and secure cloud storage. 

We are looking for a talented Director of Product Management to join our Engineering team in Boston. The Director of Product Management will oversee the product functionality and design for our flexible, scalable, and easy-to-use cloud data platform. We need someone who has the breadth of skills and experience that will make our product loved by customers - someone who can develop a deep understanding of the ChaosSearch architecture and product, a deep empathy for customers and a clear vision of how the product should evolve. Specifically, the person hired for this role will be a key figure in driving key strategic efforts related to Multi API support and Multi-Cloud support.
