What’s to be done?
After becoming the leader in the industry, CKSource was acquired in 2021 by PSG, a private equity fund investing in growing software companies.
There is a lot of potential in what else we could do and how we could do things better, that’s why we decided to strengthen the product management part of the company.
Believe it or not, we reached close to $10m of ARR without a single Product Manager. Product management was split into multiple experienced people, which worked but is inefficient and limiting as we grow further.
By joining us as the first person in this position, you have a chance to take a key part in product development, management, and marketing.
