Product Manager

The way the world builds software is changing. Today’s successful digital enterprises employ new tools and workflows to allow them to deliver better software faster, even if they’re not in the business of software. And it doesn’t end when the application is built; responding to users and improving the experience is a continuous process. We build products that give these digital enterprises the visibility, automation, and control they need to deliver software faster and with less risk. And we want you to help drive that product vision.

We are seeking a Senior product leader willing to apply a lean startup mindset to a successful and profitable product suite. You will drive the product through a challenging competitive landscape with agility and a bold vision. You will be part of a great diverse team where respect and collaboration are core values. You will need to move fast, be entrepreneurial, independent, intellectually curious, and creative. And you will apply design thinking to big business problems, inventing solutions that give our customers the ability to do what they do: launch satellites, fly airplanes, power millions of homes, manage billions in assets, and much more.

– Drive design sprints with our UX team to solve business problems through prototyping and user-centric experimentation
– Collaborate with engineering to bring those solutions to life in the product
– Work with other Product Managers to build a unified product story including feature integrations
– Support sales to better understand customers’ needs
– Support marketing to craft the best explanation of our solution for the market
– Maintain an understanding of the competitive landscape to help prioritize feature development
