The Role

In this role, you should be an analytical and creative thinker who can analyse and explore user needs with customers, define product requirements, and communicate your thinking clearly. A strong work ethic is essential, as is a background in SaaS products.

You will need to collaborate with a cross-functional set of teams, often including other members of the product team, departmental SMEs and key customer stakeholders to identify opportunities, problems and deliver value to Egress' customers.

Responsibilities

  • Manage a roadmap of work including prioritisation of customer-facing features.
  • Liaise with other product managers to ensure deliverables are aligned with other roadmaps.
  • Write requirements, build consensus, and agree product scope with a team of engineers.
  • Attend and contribute to Agile ceremonies.
  • Manage early access and beta programs.
  • Co-ordinate product releases with Engineering and all internal GTM stakeholder teams.
  • Provide training and enablement on new releases.
  • Answer incoming questions about the product and its capabilities.
  • Facilitate the creation and maintenance of proper product documentation for internal and external use.
  • Utilise Pendo to drive product improvements.

Requirements

  • 2 years+ proven experience as a Product Manager in a SaaS vendor.
  • Demonstrable understanding of Software as a Service (SaaS) platform concepts.
  • Extensive customer facing experience.
  • Ability to work well with cross-functional internal teams, including engineers, CX, Sales and the wider Product Team.
  • Ensure requirements are fully understood and that implementation plans match expectations.
  • A desire to learn and progress in product management.
  • Self-starter with excellent time management and task prioritisation skills.
  • Analytical mind with a business-focused approach.
  • Excellent communication and collaboration skills.
  • Experience working in an Agile/Scrum development process.
  • You will ideally have relevant industry experience in another cybersecurity vendor, but this is not essential.
