Vice President of Product

Worldwide Product Full-Time

Are you interested in joining the company that powers all web development? npm is the package manager for JavaScript, the most important and fastest thinking things about whatever programming language on earth. With more than 10 million developers use npm every day, at every company with a website. npm, Inc. is the company behind this revolution, developing products to bring value to enterprises in every vertical. It is not an exaggeration to say that npm has shaped how JavaScript is done.

As Vice President of Product, you will facilitate our product development efforts with effective processes, user-focused insight, and market research. You will work closely with npm's inventor, leading a team of product managers and designers who are passionate and dedicated to developing the lines of business that provide the financial backing to keep this movement from slowing down.

Working with a team of brilliant innovators and pragmatic thinkers, your role as VP of Product will allow you to make a significant impact on how software development is done in every corner of the world.

Your job touches on technology, design, and business, but the core role is to refine and communicate npm's product vision, so that vision can find expression in reality. You know that the perfect can be the enemy of the good, and that real-world constraints mean we make trade-offs to ship anything at all. Your job is to make sure that the team makes those choices with forethought and wisdom, helping us take practical steps in the direction of continual forward progress.

First and foremost, as Vice President of Product, you bring deep management expertise and proven methodology to bear on the art and science of building the right things for the right customers. We've managed to build something important; you're going to help us refine it into a sustainable and profitable business.

  • They're great and concise.


In joining the npm team, you'll become an important part of a small but dedicated product team. We strive to provide a sensible balance between work and non-work, and we allow you to define your own schedule. We also understand that healthy schedules lead to better outcomes.

We believe that high-performing teams include people from different backgrounds and experiences who can challenge each other's assumptions with fresh perspectives. To that end, we actively seek a diverse pool of applicants, including those from historically marginalized groups — women, people with disabilities, people of color, formerly incarcerated people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or gender nonconforming, first and second generation immigrants, and people from low-income families.

Our code of conduct

npm exists to facilitate sharing code, by making it easy for JavaScript module developers to publish and distribute packages. npm is a piece of technology, but more importantly, it is a community. We believe that our mission is best served in an environment that is friendly, safe, and accepting; free from intimidation or harassment. We do not tolerate abusive behavior.

Where we can hire

Our headquarters are in Oakland, California. The product team is hiring worldwide. We can best support you if you can overlap with US time zones. If you have experience working remotely, so do we. We cannot currently sponsor new work visas other than TN-1s, but we can transfer existing H-1Bs.
