Principal Product Manager – Native Apps Foundation


  • Full Time

Build the future of data. Join the Snowflake team.

As Snowflake looks to reinvent data applications with the Native Apps Framework, we need strong foundations to support our partners so that they can build, distribute and sell applications in the data cloud. These foundational capabilities not only include primitives that developers can use to build great applications but also features that allow the providers to deploy, manage and monitor their applications.

We’re looking for a Principal Product Manager to own the foundational layers. You’ll own the basic primitives related to creating and packaging applications, features related to release management, and staged rollouts, and future roadmap items related to developer experience and supporting complex applications with composability and multi party app capabilities. You will be responsible for the strategy and delivery of ALL foundational capabilities that users will interact with in building the next generation of data apps.



  • Define and evolve the product vision and direction for native apps foundations as Snowflake disrupts application development.
  • Collaborate cross functionally across product, engineering, and design stakeholders across a large scope of our product surface area.
  • Ship features and improvements frequently and iteratively.  You will own getting your product out the door, and you will own making sure it’s constantly getting better.
  • Work hand in hand with customers, engaging in frequent conversations both onsite and in customer offices to understand their needs, gather feedback, and overall ensure that product direction is in tune with customer needs.  You’ll often go stretches where you’re talking to multiple customers every day, and you’ll rarely go more than a week without a deep customer conversation.



  • Familiarity with deep database internals.
  • Proven track record of launching 0-1 products for ISVs and marketplaces.
  • Proven track record of setting product vision and strategy for deep technical products that are loved by the developer persona.
  • Experience leading high visibility cross functional projects and owning communication with key stakeholders across the company.



  • Be able to understand the breadth of our product line and how customers use it, as well as technical details especially in owned areas.
  • Have experience defining a product vision and roadmap and managing incremental execution through successful launches.
  • Thrive in the dynamic environment that comes with being part of a fast moving startup. That means flexibility as well as dealing with ambiguity.
  • Be highly data driven, knowing how to get, understand, and use data to make the best possible decisions.
  • Move quickly and constantly iterate, moving from hypotheses developed from customer conversations, data and insights to running tests to confirm those hypotheses, to learnings and iteration towards a solution that customers didn’t even realize they wanted but now can’t live without.
  • Operate deep in the technology stack that includes our secure data sharing layer, RBAC mechanisms, query processing, and the UX layer.
  • Drive execution with a cross-functional team, ensuring that everyone is working towards the same goals and impact.
  • Have 10+ years of relevant experience in a technical role, with at least 2 of those in a product management role.
  • Showing an understanding in the area of data management, Big Data analytics, data warehousing and/or cloud technologies is a plus.
