Lead Product Manager, Core Platform

Toronto, ON

From Fivetran’s founding until now, our mission has remained the same: to make access to data as simple and reliable as electricity. With Fivetran, customer data arrives in their warehouses, canonical and ready to query, with no engineering or maintenance required. We’re proud that more organizations continue to leverage our technology every day to become truly data-driven.


About the Role

Fivetran is on track to become the default choice for enterprises building new data pipelines to power the modern data stack. As a data movement platform, Fivetran is moving critical data on behalf of our customers to help power analytical and operational use cases. 

It’s essential that the data we deliver is delivered within customer SLAs (service level agreements) for latency and availability, that data volumes can scale to the high end of enterprise work loads, and the platform is able to support initiatives from the SaaS and DB connector teams, data governance/democratization teams, and data security and data trust teams. As the Product Manager of the Core Fivetran Platform you will lead this critical and highly technical area, solving challenging customer needs by driving initiatives around the early detection of pipeline slowness and scalability issues, impact analysis, alerting and observability. Your success gives our customers and partners confidence that we are delivering a best-in-class data product, and helps drive further adoption of new and existing customers. 

You’ll be a product leader that collaborates closely with the Fivetran core engineering team, our partners, DB and SaaS connector architects, and go-to-market teams to deliver new capabilities and broadly support the pipeline ecosystem. This is a position of key responsibility with high visibility across and coordination with leaders from Fivetran & our most important partners.
