At GitHub, our mission is to be the home for all developers. More than a
billion people in the world live with disabilities and we are determined to
build a GitHub that is inclusive for everyone.

We’re looking for a Product Manager to lead GitHub’s new Accessibility
program. In this role, you will define the product strategy and vision for
how we’ll not only make all GitHub products accessible by design, but also
how we’ll take advantage of our tremendous opportunity to leverage our
platform to help all developers build more accessible code. You’ll
collaborate with a diverse team of globally distributed engineers, product
managers and designers to research, create, and maintain experiences
impacting millions of developers worldwide.

*What you will be doing:*

- *Own the vision for your area*. You will be responsible for defining a
product vision for the future of GitHub’s accessibility program and will
need to work across the entire company to build the vision for how we build

while helping the team think long-term. Build trust with stakeholders by
maintaining an understandable, accurate roadmap.

processes, tooling and features.
- *Be customer obsessed:* We are hyperfocused on building a GitHub
driven by the needs of our customers. Collaborate with people with
disabilities to learn how we can remove barriers within our products to
empower all developers to do their best work on GitHub.
- *Measure success.* Own the measures used to define success for
accessibility across GitHub. Success measures must be defined at the
inception of a product and tracked throughout its lifecycle. Make measures
visible to all stakeholders and interpret them into actionable conclusions
and new hypotheses.

*You might be a fit if:*

- You have 3-5+ years of engineering, product management, program
management, or equivalent experience with demonstrated ability to bring
people together to build large systems.

- You are familiar with modern software development practices used to

- You have deep experience with complex enterprise software applications.
- You have experience designing cross-platform experiences, from web to
native mobile.
- You are passionate about GitHub and the opportunities that lie ahead
of us.

developers: to work together, to solve challenging problems, and to create
