jobs description

A better internet, where privacy is the default, is possible. Building this better internet might seem daunting or even unthinkable, but at Proton, this is what we do every day.

Proton was founded in 2014 by a group of scientists who met at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Our first product, Proton Mail, is now the world’s largest encrypted email service. Subsequent Proton products, such as Proton VPN, Proton Calendar, and Proton Drive, give our users full control over how and with whom their data is shared.

Today, Proton makes privacy universally accessible. Journalists from outlets like The Guardian and The New York Times , some of the world’s largest organizations, and people in more than 180 countries have signed up for over 70 million accounts. Our diverse and dynamic team is made up of more than 400 members representing over 40 different nationalities. While we are based in Geneva, Switzerland, we have offices in Zurich, Prague, London, Vilnius, Skopje... Taipei, and many more employees working remotely around the world.

Join one of Europe’s fastest-growing companies to help us solve challenging problems and build new products that will reach hundreds of millions of people. We want to create more than just one of the world’s most impactful tech companies; we want to create a new internet that serves the interests of all people. We need you, your voice, your ideas, and your ambition to make it happen.

Purpose of the role

We are looking for a Senior Product Manager to lead the next stage in the evolution of some of our products (Proton Mail, Calendar, Bridge). Product at Proton sits at the intersection of Engineering, Growth, Data and Design. Your responsibility will be to grow user engagement and retention by creating remarkable user experiences for our community. You are versatile in product-led growth, at the heart of our freemium model.

What You Will Do

• Define and own what success looks like in terms of engagement and retention metrics.

• Conduct market research, competitive analysis, and gather customer feedback to inform product decisions.
• Anticipate growth ceilings and define scaling strategies to prevent them, that include managing projects beyond pure-product work, and include foundational technology, tools, and processes, such as a customer engagement platform.
• Set a fast pace for the team, help them to overcome blockers and execute faster.

Job Requirements
• 8-10 years of experience in product management in B2C SaaS, preferably in online privacy and/or productivity contexts.
