Job Description

Splunk is seeking a strong product leader to drive the definition, development, and launch of critical improvements to our app marketplace. The app ecosystem is a key factor in how customers collect, analyze, and ultimately get value from their data and thus Splunk.

As the Product Lead – you will have product ownership over Splunkbase, our solutions marketplace that consists of 2000+ apps and add-ons from Splunk, our partners, and our community.

You will work cross-functionally to ensure the marketplace is equally robust across all of Splunk’s target buying centers, creating go-to-market (GTM) opportunities for Splunk and partners/developers.

You are organized, positive, creative, analytical, and focused on the customer and partners at all times. You know when to make decisions and when to ask questions. This is an execution-focused role: You maintain a strong long-term vision that aligns with the product strategy. At the same time, you are committed to improving the user experience every step of the way. This requires a customer-focused product management professional with excellent interpersonal skills and a track record of success.

  • Collaborate with engineering, QA, and support teams to plan, drive and execute product release cycles.

Requirements: I’ve already done that or have that!

  • Experience with SaaS app marketplaces, either as a product manager or partner developer (e.g. Salesforce AppExchange, AWS Marketplace)

Education: Got it!

MBA preferred.

What We Offer You: Wow, I want that.

  • A constant stream of new things for you to learn. We're always expanding into new areas, bringing in open source projects and contributing back, and exploring new technologies.
  • A set of extraordinarily hardworking, innovative, open, fun, and dedicated peers, all the way from engineering and QA to product management and customer support.
  • Growth and mentorship. We believe in growing engineers through ownership and leadership opportunities. We also believe mentors help both sides of the equation.
  • A stable, collaborative and supportive work environment.
  • Potential Team/ People leadership within the first year
