About the Role
In this role, you will be joining the Product Management team reporting to the Director of Product Management. The Product Management function at Highspot is an integral part of the company. You will be jumping into many different projects and features, and will be very hands-on. You will be working very closely with design, user research and engineering to think critically and collaboratively about how to solve complex customer problems. Over time, you will have the opportunity to help shape and grow not just the product, but also the team.
The Senior Product Manager role has an area of ownership within the product portfolio, and works with a feature crew of engineers and designers to identify, define, validate, and ship features. The Training & Coaching pillar is responsible for creating intuitive learning experiences within a native Learning Management System (LMS) that serve as a seamless extension of the Highspot platform and help sales reps master the knowledge and skills needed to be their very best selves. Our mission is to prepare customer facing teams for success with learning that #repslove. We accomplish this both through standalone innovation, and deep integration with the rest of the Highspot platform.
Our ideal candidate is someone who enjoys understanding a broad set of customer requirements, digging into technical constraints, and using their expertise to deliver an elegantly simple customer experience. This person will benefit from being a skilled communicator, who can drive enterprise-level customer conversations, collaborate effectively with other disciplines, and land proposals with stakeholders.
