Docker is a remote first company with employees across Europe, APAC and the Americas that simplifies the lives of developers who are making world-changing apps. We raised our Series C funding in March 2022 for $105M at a $2.1B valuation. We continued to see exponential revenue growth last year. Join us for a whale of a ride!

Docker is looking for a Product line leader for our Share Product Line, where we develop and ship Docker Official Images, publisher tools, and Docker Hub. With millions of active developers globally, 26 million monthly active IPs, 25 billion pulls per month and 17 million repos and growing, this is a chance to take the industry’s leading marketplace for modern apps and extend this lead to the stratosphere! Docker Hub and our content help developers to bring their ideas to life by delivering a magical experience simplifying and accelerating the complexities of building and shipping applications. This leader is responsible for managing the entire product lifecycle to define, prioritize and bring to market winning products that delight developers and dev teams.

If you love 1 to 10 scaling projects and dynamic environments with lots of opportunities to shape processes and standardize, we want to talk with you. You can help write the next gen case study on world class PLG. This is a unique opportunity to engage with a vibrant community of millions of developers in a way that simplifies cloud-native application development.
