You’ll also mentor your peers, using both past and new experiences to help those around you learn and grow.

What type of work will you be doing? What assignments, requirements, or skills will you be performing on a regular basis?

  • You will be hiring and managing a distributed group of PMs, defining the group’s objectives and key results.

  • You’ll make sure individuals PMs are assigned with the right projects and set up for success.

  • You will be providing mentorship and guidance helping them be successful.

  • You’ll conduct customer and market analysis to help shape the product vision and strategy.

  • You will assure priorities are synced across the product line you manage and that teams are executing against those.

  • You will lead the product line through various stages from inception to launch to continuous improvement.

  • You will work closely with engineering, design, and information experience teams and drive end to end execution.

  • You’ll collaborate with customer field teams and go-to-market teams to provide product enablement.

  • You’ll create solutions that scale to meet the needs of the world’s biggest enterprises.

What is leadership like for this role? What is the structure and culture of the team like?

Inclusion, autonomy, effective processes, sustainability, and employee growth guide our team.
