Introduction
The Product Manager for QRadar Cloud Security will own the definition of critical cloud security use cases including behavior-based anomaly detection of cloud threats, sensitive data and critical asset protections, incident case management and more.

Additional responsibilities will include:
  • Articulating market problems to the broader product team.
  • Helping to define a differentiated product.
  • Working collaboratively with development teams, product architects, product designers, and key customers to appropriately package features into product releases and ensure product designs reflect business objectives (e.g., by creating quarterly roadmaps, monthly release plans).
  • Regularly participating in overall functional program planning (e.g., for product content, usability, schedule, and quality).
  • Driving customer validation through beta programs and client meetings, confirming requirements are addressed by the delivered solution.
  • Confirming that marketing communications articulate the value proposition for key features and are developed and delivered in a digitally consumable way.
  • Working with development and marketing to deliver digital assets in support of always-on marketing and digital engagement, such as interactive demos, trials/evaluations, and user forums/communities.
  • Confirming that sales execution plans are in place.
  • Working with enablement to plan continuous learning programs for sales team and partners and to guide creation of enablement assets (conversation guides, competitor overviews), tools, and technical assets (product architectures).
  • Identifying product references for industry and client referrals.
  • Working with development and marketing to ensure user analytics are appropriately embedded, tracked, and analyzed.

If you are hired into a Colorado work location, the anticipated compensation range for the position $92,000 to $143,000 is based on a full-time schedule.
