About You

You're passionate about product. Desire to work on a world-class enterprise Software-as-a-Service platform serving some of the largest companies in the world. Your job to be done is translating customer problems into product solutions.

You thrive in an agile environment. As part of the product team you'll be acting as the customer voice to the software engineering team. From defining and creating actionable stories for the backlog to its prioritization. You're there to make sure the product vision is implemented correctly.

You've got the experience we need. Optimally you have 4+ years of experience in product. Preferably with agile scrum teams and with enterprise software. Understanding of common product frameworks like the Kano Model and Jobs to be Done is a plus.

You're a self-starter and a critical thinker. You're capable of taking on technical challenges big and small. Sometimes you'll be working solo on a project, as such; you can work with minimal guidance and seek the best solution.

The RiskLens platform uses Monte Carlo simulations, distributions, the Factor Analysis of Information Risk model and a few other interesting bits to answer real cybersecurity questions.

Our product and engineerings teams are highly collaborative; using agile practices, Jobs to be Done, the Kano Model, customer interviews, refinement sessions, and a handful of other tools and methodologies to create world-class software. We're growing fast and leading the market for quantitative cyber security risk analysis.
