Secfix Tip: You don't fill all the boxes? We encourage you to apply anyways. The leaders are not defined by checking boxes but rather initiative they take to compensate those ;)


Secfix helps B2B SaaS startups and scaleups automate security & compliance and reach security standards like SOC 2 and ISO 27001 in weeks instead of months. We are building the integrations to the most popular tools like AWS, GCP, Azure, Jira and GitHub to do so. We are funded by top German investors (including the first angel investors of Flixbus).

Your role

We're looking for product hire #1. You'll take on either a contributor role or, if interested in management, have the opportunity to build and lead your own team of product managers. You'll also be helping to define our product strategy, processes, and product culture largely from the ground up.

🟩 Benefits

Make history with one of the most promising security startups in Germany funded by famous founders. Be the architect behind the product that matters.
Attractive salary including significant virtual equity share of the company, along with a yearly personal development budget. Our team is known for loads of fun and frequent team events to strengthen our connection.
At Secfix you have autonomy over your choice of equipment, accessories, editors, tools, and technology if it contributes to developing the product faster.
100% Remote culture with the option to work in co-working spaces in Berlin/Germany
If needed, relocation to Germany is possible

💡You will

Own product strategy, roadmaps, and metrics for the collaboration areas of Secfix’s product, while also contributing to Secfix’s overall product vision
Be extremely customer centric. Understand customer needs, then define and ship zero-to-one features and enhance and scale one-to-n features
Partner with engineering and product design leads to iteratively ship features using agile processes
Partner with cross-functional teams including customer success, sales, and marketing to gather feedback, communicate product strategy, and drive the introduction and adoption of product features
Implement, refine, and scale product management best practices
Contribute to Secfix’s product culture, growing with hiring and team development
Bring first principles thinking and a focus on continuous improvement to all aspects of your work

🧪 You have

4+ years of overall product management experience, much of that focused on B2B SaaS products, ideally following YCombinator methodology, experience with “building things that don’t scale”
1+ years in a senior or lead product role that involved a mix of strategy, roadmapping, feature definition, and driving key metrics. If you were product employee number 1 before - even better
Interest in tech. Sometimes you’ll need to jump into API research when we build new integrations, on other days you will find the way for engineers to map a new security certification standard. Sometimes create a user friendly UI workflow. Our works is diverse. No worries, no tech stack nor security knowledge is required!
Experience with customer research, aggregating data, synthesizing feedback, and communicating product insights and strategy to a variety of stakeholders including executives, go-to-market teams, and engineers
Exceptional written and verbal communication skills with a track record of cross-functional collaboration in English language
Experience contributing to the culture and processes of a young product organization

🚀About Us

Our Mission

Founded in 2021, our mission is to build a platform that every modern SaaS company, no matter its size, can use to build security and compliance from scratch. We help startups reach security standards like ISO 27001 and SOC 2 in weeks instead of months and stay compliant for years. With just a few clicks our customers can connect their infrastructure, receive reports about their overall security maturity and “How to fix” recommendations. We achieve this by automating evidence collection from the most popular integrations like GCP, AWS, Azure, GitHub, Jira etc.; guiding customers end-to-end as tech-savvy audit advisors, and making connections to vetted SaaS and service providers and trained audit partners. The best thing, yet: We ourselves are the users of our product and we love it.
We’re based in Berlin, but built as a remote company that enables you to do your best work from anywhere in the world.
At Secfix, we are committed to building a diverse and inclusive company that celebrates individuals of all backgrounds. We’re an equal opportunity employer and encourage all applicants.

Our Values

We are obsessed with our customers. We start with the customer and work backward to create products people want.
We build smart. We love working by YCombinator's principles and we preach those in our team.
We create trust. Transparency and ethics are within our DNA.
We are scrappy. A functional basic prototype in 2 weeks is worth more now than a perfect idea in 2 months.
We are owners. Building things in a startup is owning things and being accountable for their timely delivery.

Our Product

Integrations: We build integrations to the most popular tools our customers use: AWS, GCP, Azure, Jira and GitHub, etc. These integrations run hourly scans to make sure customers always are informed about their security maturity status as organization.
App: We build an API that is supporting the onboarding and features that customers love
Monitoring Agent: We help customers monitor Windows, MacOs and Linux machines using Osquery, SQL and GO.
