Companies spend millions on IT, year after year, without a clear picture of where it goes or how effectively it's spent. Flexera shines a light into this technology black hole so executives can understand exactly what's in their IT ecosystem and manage it more effectively.
Flexera thrives on building a diverse workforce because it enables us to build our products with a wider appeal and serve our customers on a global scale.
Companies invest in their IT architecture and applications with the best intentions, but decentralized models result in inefficiency and overspend often in the millions. Reporting directly to the Head of Global Product Management, the visibility is off the charts for this role as the leader for our Data Platform portfolio.

This individual will head up our Data Platform product management team including hiring, mentoring and coordinating the work of the team members. You will also be responsible for ensuring that these products deliver tangible customer value and align internal stakeholder groups including sales/solutions engineers, customer success, engineering, and support.
You will need to deliver business outcomes, usability, 'fit for purpose' and market success delivery of the product and features falls. You will be a key decision maker in priorities, strategies, and design decisions throughout the lifecycle.
