As a Senior Product Manager, you will guide a team and will have leadership for your product’s complete “end-to-end product lifecycle” and all departments will look to you for direction in guiding company investments.
This extends from increasing the profitability of your existing product to developing new product extensions for the company. You will expand the depth of your product’s capabilities from existing ideas, and help to develop new ones based on your industry experience and contact with customers and prospects. You must possess a unique blend of business and technical savvy; a big-picture vision, and the drive to make that vision a reality. You should enjoy spending time in the market to understand relevant problem spaces across the AML value-chain and finding innovative solutions that address them.
You must be able to communicate with all areas of the company. You will work with Sales, Pre-Sales, Product Marketing, Professional Services, Technical Product Management and R&D counterparts to define product release requirements. You will be an important voice contributing to Product Marketing’s go-to-market strategy, helping them to understand product capabilities and points-of-differentiation for product positioning, key benefits, and target customer needs. You will serve as the internal and external evangelist for your product offering and work alongside Sales / Pre-Sales positioning its value to customers.
