Director, Product Management- Varicent

Are you passionate about delighting people with beautiful and easy to use software? Are you excited about leading and building a best-in-class product suite and product organization?

Who Is Varicent & How Are They Changing the World?

 

Varicent is the leader in the multi-billion-dollar industry that is Sales Performance Management. Varicent helps enterprise organizations manage the complex end-to-end process of all things sales performance, helping their clients improve performance and drive growth.

This includes creating smarter territory plans and effective quota assignments, efficient pipeline management (from lead to customer) and incentive compensation management (compensating sales reps in a fair and reliable way). 

 

Their unique story is fundamental to their success: Founded in 2005, they grew rapidly. In 2012, they joined the IBM family and with the additional horsepower, continued to scale. In January 2020, IBM sold its most profitable assets - Varicent included. All the original founders came back to lead the team into a strong future. They’re off to a hot start: Despite the chaos of 2020, Varicent joined forces with Symon and FunnelCake. Thanks to their acquisitions, Varicent is now a full end-to-end solution.

 

Varicent was named a Leader in the 2020 Gartner Quadrant for Sales Performance Management. Their award-winning products are known for their innovation, leading the way in easy-to-use and explainable advanced analytics. 

 

How Will I Make An Impact?

 

As a Director, Product Management, you will:

  • Mentor and develop talent on the product management team (10 PMs, 5 product areas + product ops)

  • Refine/establish best practices for the PM org

  • Run weekly 1:1s, quarterly performance management, and performance reviews

  • Set up realistic and achievable goals, help identify roadblocks to success and remove them for the team

  • Establish executive relationships across the organization to ensure products can be successfully adopted, sold, and supported

  • Work with product leadership to focus team efforts on resolving go-to-market challenges

  • Ensure the team is capable of predictable release of quality software that’s used by our customers and our internal teams, that meets our validated use cases in the market, and aligned to key company objectives

 

Note: This is a management position and not a product manager role, the goal is to bring your experience to coach and grow a team and not do the day-to-day PM work yourself
