Sr Technical Product Manager at A Cloud Guru
Do you love solving customer problems, but also love working in highly technical environments? We have just the job for you! The Environment Platform team is building a platform to support all hands-on learning environments at Pluralsight.

Your customers are internal teams providing skills experiences like assessments, labs, and video courses. This is an opportunity for someone that has product management experience with a background in engineering or DevOps, or, if you don't have product experience, but think you have the chops - you may still be a fit!
