Product Manager

| Chicago

In many ways, the business of Sprout Social is our product. It is what our customers subscribe to and our users engage with to enhance their social media management capabilities. In order to succeed, we need to be relentless about building superior software and solving hard problems on our customers’ behalf. This approach has earned Sprout awards both for our software (G2 Crowd) and our culture (Glassdoor). While we appreciate the recognition, we know we can get so much better.

Our product management team will be growing over time and we are looking to find the best possible team members as opportunities emerge. This could potentially fit within any of our product areas (Analytics, Engagement, Growth, Mobile, Publishing) -- or in something new!

PLEASE NOTE: this is not an immediate opening. Applicants to this posting will only be contacted by a recruiter if we identify a position where there is a potential fit.
