You’ll be a highly visible member of the Sophos Central team, responsible for your roadmap, and on critical path for delivery of the next gen products. You will participate in product strategy, planning sessions, product design, and requirements gathering. You will partner with brilliant engineering teams and architects across the globe to build innovative solutions for real-world problems.

  • You are a motivated self-starter, thriving on challenge, with a thirst for knowledge

  • 5-10 Years progressive experience in Product Management or Technical leadership
  • 2+ Years’ Experience with AWS or other cloud data solution
  • Understanding of Agile methodologies (and when to not use them)
  • You can speak Developer – you must be able to understand, evaluate, and act on information not only from the Data Groups, but from developers and architects across the organization.
