About Cosmonic

At Cosmonic, we are building the distributed application platform that allows you to go quickly from Sketch to Scale. As the creators and driving force behind the wasmCloud CNCF project, we believe in the future of WebAssembly and distributed computing. We want to bring joy back to the lives of developers by simplifying the experience of building, operating, and maintaining distributed applications.

What you’ll do

Looking to get out of the grind to make a foundational difference in a burgeoning ecosystem and product segment? Cosmonic is looking for a hands-on VP of Product to drive our product vision across the developer onboarding, discovery, and evaluation experiences. As the first executive level position to collaborate with the founders this is a high impact role reporting directly to the CEO. We are seeking highly motivated candidates with experience building products on serverless technologies, Platforms as a Service (PaaS), and Software as a Service (SaaS).

This phenomenal opportunity positions a candidate to help usher in the next great evolution of technology at the intersection of WebAssembly and distributed systems. WebAssembly is now the fourth language of the web and is supported today on all major browsers, mobile devices, and cloud platforms. It’s being rapidly adopted by developers and enterprises to deliver the experience of tomorrow. Cosmonic was founded by the team behind CNCF wasmCloud, a popular WebAssembly framework adopted today by hundreds of organizations to deliver secure and portable applications.

We’re changing the way developers create, deploy, and operate distributed applications. We’re bringing joy back to application development, helping developers build and deploy portable business logic to seamlessly compose distributed applications. With the features Cosmonic provides, developers can quickly scale their software across clouds, edges, and devices to meet their needs – all while only focusing on the code that matters.

Cosmonic is built by developers for developers. Our goal is to make Cosmonic the best venue for distributed application development. This is a high-visibility role requiring you to work closely with customers and the Cosmonic development team, advocating for customer needs while keeping development plans on course.

Please note that this position can be based out of any continental US location and is remote.

Your responsibilities will include engaging with developer customers, Cosmonic engineers, and the WebAssembly community to identify requirements, product features, and work closely with development teams to get those features into the hands of our customers. Successful applicants will have experience defining products, leading cross-functional teams, and communicating to a large number of stakeholders with different levels of knowledge and expertise. The successful candidate will be an excellent written and verbal communicator. On this team, you’ll get to wear many hats, work fast and smart, and iterate quickly. We are looking for someone who is ready to take ownership of a growing product and join a tightly-knit team tackling a very interesting and challenging opportunity. An ideal candidate will not be afraid to roll up their sleeves and get to work and also have a strategic vision for how they would like to develop their organization.

Mentorship and Career Growth

Our team is dedicated to supporting new team members. Our team has a broad mix of experience and Cosmonic is a fast-growing startup. We are building an environment that celebrates knowledge sharing and mentorship. A great candidate will be a welcoming and mentoring influence on new joiners.

Work/Life Balance

Our team is focused on balancing life with work and does this via autonomy and focusing more on results than time clocks. Our team is entirely remote.

Inclusive Team Culture

At Cosmonic, we embrace our differences. We are building the company we’ve always wanted to work for. We have great benefits, encourage and support education and collaboration.
