The Team

Our team is 40+ people strong and always growing. We’re expecting another significant growth phase imminently. We’re recognised as market innovators - we have a bias for action and our team pride themselves on their ability to plan, execute and iterate at a rapid pace. We value the ability to challenge each other, hold each other to account, develop each other personally and professionally and celebrate each other’s successes.

We are quite a diverse team – 13 nationalities, 15 languages, many more dialects – and lots of owls. We are spread across 2 continents and 6 countries.

We are looking for another experienced Product Manager to join our existing team to build capacity so that we can move faster and feed our enlarged development team.

There will be an opportunity to discuss how we divide responsibility for product management with our existing PM. This will be based on your skills and experience but responsibilities will likely include:

  • Effective collaboration with customers and internal teams to understand and prioritise jobs to be done eg
  • Direct customer and competitor research
  • Working with marketing to identify, build and emphasise features, metrics or insights that can support thought leadership and lead generation
  • Working with Sales, Customer success and SOC to improve the overall experience of onboarding
  • Work with SOC team to identify new data insights that can be included in the product
  • Work with product marketing and SOC to develop the cyber maturity of our customers and ensure our product meets the needs of more mature customers
  • Working with external third parties on deployment integrations so the CyberOwl is baked into other onboard technologies
  • Working with development teams to understand feasibility
  • Delivering on business strategy and OKRs
  • Maximising value and engagement achieved from our demo
  • Maximising the value realised during our Proof-of-Value phase for new clients (understanding and emphasising the ah-ha moment)
  • Reducing the sales cycle / helping get to contract as quickly as possible
  • Order fulfilment and ensuring we can complete roll-out across a fleet as quickly as possible so we maximise revenue from a contract
  • Building and maintaining a roadmap for development eg
  • Developing features that reduce the amount and complexity of deployment steps for typical customer environments
  • Develop features that increase the stickiness of our product and help embed Medulla into an increasing number of customer processes
  • Plan and oversee a roadmap of R&D to de-risk future roadmap opportunities.
