VMware Product Manager - Platform Integration - Opportunity for Working Remotely in Indianapolis, Indiana
VMware is looking for a Product Manager to join Tanzu and the Modern Applications Platform Business Unit (MAPBU) product team. VMware customers are increasingly deploying containers as the foundation of their application modernization efforts. The MAPBU team delivers best-in-class enterprise cloud-native solutions – supporting container frameworks such as Kubernetes.
This Tanzu team is chartered with providing application teams with a “native” Kubernetes experience that complements our existing Tanzu App Service (TAS) offering. They are a fast-paced, startup-like team where you will have the opportunity to make meaningful contributions to the product roadmap while developing skills in cutting-edge technologies. You will be part of an action-oriented team that has a culture of open communication, empowerment, innovation, teamwork, and customer success. We are looking for someone with a strong technical background to help define and evangelize the core capabilities of our next-generation app development and operations solution.
Given the current state of the program, we are looking for Product Manager’s that thrive and excel in the early phases of product definition, are not scared of large, complex problems, are truly passionate about users (developers & platform teams), knowledgeable about the Kubernetes ecosystem (or willing to learn!) and work well in fast-moving, quick-adjusting, and collaborative environments.
Job Role and Responsibilities:
As a Product Manager, you are a member of the Product team and in charge of product definition, roadmap, and direction of a specific area of the Tanzu feature set. You will work cross-functionally with user experience, engineering, and open source communities to create innovative solutions that build on top of a healthy ecosystem of internal and OSS tools.
You will be responsible for customer and market research that you will use to define the strategy for your area of responsibility and present that strategy to internal stakeholders and customers.
Working collaboratively with engineering to execute on the product roadmap through proper prioritization.
You will work to bring the customer and their needs closer to the development team through research, customer engagements, and involving customers in the incremental progress of the development team.
Partnering with users, customers, and account teams to facilitate successful customer proof of concept deployments.
You will present technical presentations to customers, partners, and the field, and also gather feedback to influence product and solution offerings.
Able to breakdown complex problems into simple solutions
Obsess with customers, users, and their needs
Passionate technologists, ready to evangelize within and outside of VMware, not scared of going deep and broad and straddle OSS and commercial worlds
