As a Product Marketing Manager III, you are responsible to analyze, plan, create, develop, and implement effective Go-To-Market (GTM) strategy and marketing plans to ensure success for all phases of a product/service/platform/solution lifecycle (e.g., launch, growth, sustaining, and phase out).

This role is not about just doing demos or presenting at trade shows (although this will be a part of your job responsibilities). Rather, this role is the glue that binds our product strategy together and drives success and achieve results. You will be the product evangelist and will play an integral role in the strategy and organization of your assigned product launches. You know our competitors like the back of your hand: what they do today and what they plan to do in the future. You also know your buyers better than they know themselves, including how they make their buying decisions, what titles they hold, what topics interest them and what key pain points you need to address. This isn't guesswork. You back up strategic insights with market evidence and then use that knowledge to drive the development of positioning and messaging that resonates with these buyer personas.

You will collaborate with our marketing team to develop innovative programs that drive demand. An attention to detail and eye for quality are critical to your success, along with an ability to grasp and present our product's value propositions in a way that resonates and clearly articulates how we solve our buyers' problems. You are obsessed with tracking performance, and have the data to prove what's working and what isn't. In addition to the marketing team, you will regularly collaborate with product managers, sales enablement, regional sales leads, innovation team members and key executives to articulate your recommendations and strategy. This requires a balancing act of strong diplomatic skills, collaboration, authentic communication and inclusion.
