Duo Security, now part of Cisco, is the leading access security provider.

Duo + Cisco = Disco

With the Most Loved Company in Security and the global leader in network technology joining forces, there are more exciting opportunities than ever to be at the forefront of securing the cloud.

Our mission is simple: democratize security by making it easy and effective for everyone. We’re transforming security from the ground up by solving the world’s most pressing geopolitical challenge — safe, secure information access. We engineer our business to enable our customers to easily address their ever-evolving security challenges.

We believe that impactful work is rewarding work and that our team is at its best when everyone feels empowered to bring their whole self to work. We learn together by hiring for cultural contribution, not cultural fit, and recognize that diversity in background and thought are essential to building high-impact teams.

We invest in growth and learning opportunities and encourage our people to never stop learning. We foster collaboration and believe in being recognized (and rewarded!) for hard work. We champion a healthy work-life balance. We’re kinder than necessary.

Together we build for the future by designing simple solutions for complex problems. And that’s why we’re the most loved and trusted name in security.

We are looking for a leader who is passionate about developing great experiences for customers and is knowledgeable about how to navigate and positively influence an organization cross functionally at a peer and executive level.

What you’ll do

As the Director of Product Management, you will bring your core product management expertise along with your networking, negotiations, strategy, team and business development skills together to lead the Tech Partnerships, Ecosystems and Remote Access function and team.

You will assess, manage and complete Duo Security product partnership opportunities (including strategic partnerships, ecosystem partnerships and internal Cisco partnership opportunities), define a Product Partnership strategy, and work closely with Product and other team members to drive critical partnerships that help grow and evolve our business. In addition to this, you will help drive your expertise and experience to manage a key product area of Remote Access.

You will work on the product team, but will be expected to drive the strategy end to end, from concept to marketing and GTM, working with a wide array of internal and external team members.

You will be coaching and leading a team of Product Managers and Partner Product Managers with front-line responsibilities to craft strategies, deliver product, define and structure critical partnerships, negotiate agreements, and cultivate trusted relationships with partners.

You will be an authority with vision in Duo’s ecosystem, and if you really knock it out of the park you will make your mark on the industry defining Access Security.

Skills you have…

  • You have extensive experience in ecosystem and strategic partnerships, as a product management leader for products that exist in a sophisticated ecosystem where vendors compete and partner at the same time.
  • You have a proven track record (5+ years experience) of leading a product team responsible for successfully delivering products, integrations and partnerships and are comfortable working on a strategic level with senior leadership and also on a tactical level with product teams.
  • You are an experienced (10+ years) with product manager for SaaS and prem software products.
  • You are comfortable leading high stakes strategic conversations and negotiations about strategies, features, APIs, commercial arrangements.
  • You’re able to successfully obtain or give commitments to a solution or idea, while maintaining integrity and relationships.
  • You’re can build relationships, be persuasive and influential within and across immediate working groups while at the same time possessing the critical ability to listen and hear.
  • You have experience building ecosystems, creating scale through a large number of targeted integrations.
  • You have great communication skills and frameworks, which you use with internal and external team members.
  • You have consistently built, led and developed hard-working teams. People you have managed went on to have amazing careers, powered by findings, experiences and personal mentorship on your teams.
  • You’re able to manage competing priorities while balancing the needs of customers to assist with a long-term strategy.
  • We’d love for you to have Identity and Access management background you can bring to this position.

Reasons why you should apply…

  • You are looking for the opportunity to further round yourself out with direct work on partnerships and ecosystem, without stepping away from the core product work.
  • You possess a highly driven and entrepreneurial personality, with an ability to get stuff done while having a sharp mind and eye for detail.
  • You love living on the frontier of the brand new and inspire by creating vision and plans for the future.
  • You are comfortable initiating and managing vital change and work effectively and efficiently through others.
  • You see potential in human diversity and build bridges between different cultures and experiences to help others work together.
  • You’re motivated by being an authority in your field and excel at working across diverse team members, providing clarity through focus and direction.
  • You value, show and drive accountability, integrity and empathy.

This may not be a job for you if…

  • If the pace of a fast-moving, growth-phase portfolio makes you uncomfortable, or if you need well-established policies and procedures to get results.
  • If you are uncomfortable operating in a sophisticated ecosystem of a defined GM operated business unit within a large company, navigating to increase benefits of both.
