Job description

Anaplan is looking for a technical and passionate Product Manager to help drive the development of the next generation of our security platform and products. As our software engineering team evolves, we're looking to add talented product managers that can help us dream-up and support complex solutions in security and develop new customer facing products. This is a stellar opportunity to get involved early in a highly visible, large scale cloud company.


What you'll be doing: 

• Work closely with Engineering team and the Product Director to solve complex security problems and to build amazing products

• Balance business and user needs with technical constraints - discover the true requirements underlying feature requests, recommending alternative approaches, and lead and inspire engineering efforts to meet objectives

• Excel at understanding what users need and not just what they want

• Drive end-to-end feature delivery: writing user stories with clear acceptance criteria, working with UX to create prototypes for usability testing and research, working with engineering, documentation, support, and marketing to deliver quality product.

• Lead backlog grooming to decompose and estimate stories

• Attend scrum meetings including standup's, retrospectives, and demos

• Effectively collaborate across global teams to create alignment between engineering teams and other product stakeholders.

• Train sales, customer success and support on new features and messaging

• Meet with customers, users, prospects, and partners to communicate Anaplan’s product vision, product roadmap, and competitive differentiation.

• Maintain strong understanding of relevant technologies


More about you: 

• 5+ years of product management experience at a successful software company in the security, infrastructure, or a related software field

• 3+ years of application security experience

• Must have successfully taken a product through FedRamp certification

• Experience with APIs, Authentication & Access Management, RBAC, Identity Management, SAML and/or Crypto technologies

• Bachelor’s degree in computer science or related field

• Jira and Confluence Ninja

• Ability to work on multiple projects, set priorities and meet deadlines

• Solid experience with the product development process especially with an iterative methodology such as Agile Scrum

• Solid communication and collaboration skills

• Self-starter with high levels of initiative, commitment and energy who can work with a high degree of uncertainty in a fast paced environment

• Plus: former engineer (or some type of technical role) and/or SaaS experience


What we offer: 

  • A rewarding, progressive career with a company that values diversity, flexibility and understands the need for a good work/life balance.
  • Market-leading salaries combined with generous bonuses, equity and a range of comprehensive benefits.
  • Regular agile meetups, events and hackathons (both attending and hosting!)
  • Flexible working, catered lunches, a fully stocked kitchen and plenty of parties and events.
  • A range of sports, health and wellbeing initiatives.
  • 3 days of paid leave every year to help support the charity or cause of your choice.
  • Huge problems to solve –you will constantly be learning and pushing boundaries, working with some of the smartest people around!
