Octopus Deploy is one of Australia’s fastest-growing software companies (and we’re taking on the world). After bootstrapping for a decade, in 2021, we quietly raised Australia's second largest ever venture capital raise, accepting a USD 172M minority investment from Insight Partners.

Do you want to shape the future of how software is deployed?

A world-class product isn’t just a collection of features.  Everything needs to work together to create a customer experience bigger than the sum of its parts.  As a Product Manager, you will ensure our investments into the product add up to something delightful.


This is a remote role based in Australia or New Zealand.

Salary range: $130,000 - $160,000 plus stock options  

A typical day as a Product Manager at Octopus may include:

  • Listening to customers.  We receive customer feedback from many sources, and we frequently seek more.  You will understand our users’ problems deeply.

  • Consuming information. Continual learning is part of the job. You will analyze data, read blog posts, watch conference talks, and more.

  • Forming opinions. You will apply your customer research and acquired knowledge by forming opinions on where we should invest our efforts.

  • Developing solutions. You will collaborate with designers and engineers to shape solutions to the problems we have chosen to tackle, ensuring we ship a product that our customers love.

  • Communicating. As a Product Manager, you will ensure there is alignment between your team and the rest of the company. This is achieved through formal processes (e.g. quarterly planning) and relentless communication.

  • Monitoring impact. You will continually monitor the impact of our delivered solutions, using this data to shape future work and investment decisions.

  • Working where you work best.  We've built a place where passionate people are given the trust and freedom to do their best work.  Our headquarters are in Brisbane, Australia, where the company started, but our team is distributed worldwide, and we’ve built a remote-first culture.

We are looking for someone like you who:

  • Has experience working on a business-critical B2B software product

  • Understands and appreciates the developer eco-system, including trends in software development lifecycles, tooling, and how complex, regulated environments factor into the day-to-day lives of technology teams

  • Has led customer research

  • Collaborated with engineering and design teams to deliver impactful results

  • Can tell a story, capable of inspiring their team and stakeholders

  • Excellent communication skills, written and verbal

  • A passion for delightful software.

Why Is This A Great Opportunity?

  • We offer great benefits, including generous laptop and home office allowances, plus stock options!

  • We value transparency and fairness in every aspect of our business. For example, Paul (our CEO) shares monthly updates on company performance, and our pay structures are designed to pass the ‘printer test’.

  • Trust and autonomy. Octonauts are treated like adults, and are trusted to find the best way of working for the task at hand, without managers looking over their shoulder.

  • You’ll be joining a high-growth company with numerous opportunities to learn and advance your career.

  • Remote first: work from wherever you feel most productive.

  • We are a supportive company where everyone’s contribution is valued.

  • We respect and encourage work/life balance.

Equal Opportunity

  • We’ve built an inclusive workplace culture and understand the true importance of culture-add, versus culture-fit.

  • From day 1, you'll have a buddy helping you get your bearings. You can book in coffee chats with anyone in the company. We encourage everyone to have a voice in all aspects of the product and the business. So much so that we have an open chat policy (all channels are public by default) and everyone is welcome!

  • Also when it comes to inclusivity, we mean it, check out our handbook!

  • If you’d like to work at Octopus, reach out and say hello!

How to Apply

  • You must have ongoing unrestricted work rights in the relevant job ad location (Australia, New Zealand) to apply for this opportunity.

  • Submit a CV - your LinkedIn profile is also acceptable as long as it contains enough information for us to assess your fit for the role.

  • We welcome any other relevant documents or portfolios necessary to showcase your skillset and why you think you’d be a great fit here at Octopus.

$130,000 - $160,000 a year

Interested? We'd love to hear from you. Please include a cover letter outlining what you can bring to the role and how Octopus would be a good fit for you. If you look like a good fit we'll get in touch to arrange a chat.
