Our rapidly growing customer base spans the automotive, medical device, life sciences, semiconductor, aerospace & defense, industrial manufacturing, consumer electronics, financial services, and insurance industries.

We are looking for a Product Manager to lead the product strategy for how Jama Software wins in the market, prioritizes what gets built, and what defines success. You'll own long-running product initiatives but share ownership of the product. To that end, you will build and manage the business constraints for your initiatives, you’ll have opinions on where we should be taking the product from a business value and user value perspective, and you’ll keep teams adequately supplied with a healthy, well-defined backlog. You’ll build trust with your collaborators in Product Marketing, Engineering, Business Development, and Customer Success by being direct, open, and honest about what you will and will not deliver to support the business needs of our customers in regulated and unregulated industries. This position will contribute directly to a critical area of our product roadmap and work with key team members to help define product innovation strategy and bring new, differentiated capabilities to market.

You’ll be working with your manager, the Director of Product Management, to achieve the goals of the Product Management team! Join our dynamic team in a remote-first work environment, with the opportunity to come together annually for a company-wide gathering!

What You'll Do:

  • Act as primary subject matter expert and lead the product strategy and roadmap for assigned segments of the Jama Software product line.
  • Build cases and product requirements documentation to support and define new development projects.
  • Run feature iteration and collaborate with scrum team throughout the product lifecycle.
  • Collaborate with Product Design on concepts and prototypes, and Engineering on development execution.
  • Develop a deep understanding of client needs and market trends, through client interaction and other market research.
  • Communicate the product roadmap for assigned areas with key team members.

What You'll Bring:

  • 3 to 5 years of software product management experience.
  • Experienced in working iteratively in an agile or lean environment, and able to break down large problems into smaller valuable increments.
  • Demonstrated, measurable success in launching and managing innovative products or product features to drive customer delight and revenue growth.
  • Excel working self-directed, within a fast-paced environment – individually, in small teams, or across functional groups.
  • Outstanding communication skills and ability to work with diverse roles across the company and with customers.
  • Understanding of technical integrations between SaaS applications, including external tools/services that can accelerate innovation initiatives.
  • Customer-focused, data-driven, and design-focused problem-solving.

Nice to Have:

  • Experience in enterprise software.
  • Product Management certification (Pragmatic Institute or other)
  • Demonstrated experience in systems engineering, particularly in regulated industries.

Perks and Benefits:

  • Virtual first and culturally diverse work environment spanning 8 countries.
  • Ambitious and fun work with a chance to define distinct, company-shaping tangible contributions.
  • Flexible time off and leave programs crafted to meet the needs for your rejuvenation and extra support to cope with life events with a quarterly $75 wellness reimbursement.
  • Comprehensive and affordable medical, dental and vision plans with pre-tax savings accounts and a generous 401(k) employer match.
  • 12 weeks of paid parental leave to bond with your new family member.
  • Emphasis on learning and development at all levels with a subscription to LinkedIn Learning.
