We are Liquibase
Liquibase is an open-source tool and the name of our company. (We used to be called ‘Datical' and love using the word ‘radical'. It rhymes!)
Our vision is to be the easiest, safest, and most powerful community-led database change management solution.
Our mission is to transform the way businesses build software. Powered by open source innovation and supported by the experts who know it best, Liquibase is database schema change automation designed for high-speed CI/CD. We radically improve and simplify the application release process — starting with database schema change. Our solutions make developers' lives better and deliver automation capabilities technology executives need. We remove database deployments as a barrier to delivering new application innovation.
Who we're looking for:
Liquibase is looking for a product manager that can harness the power of an active, enthusiastic, and engaged open source community of thousands to deliver the future of database release automation.
2020 was spent laying the foundation for a continuum of inventive products & services that will address the CICD needs of a broad spectrum of database users. In 2021 we'll take full advantage of that investment by delivering a host of database release automation capabilities that are secure, powerful, and easy to use. Our new product manager will be critical to the success of these efforts.
As a Product Manager at Liquibase, you'll work with everyone.

You will be working with them all.
