Life on the team


The Managed Services Product Marketing Manager is responsible for making our services ‘fly off the shelf’. In this newly established role, you are the glue that binds the product strategy to the right tools and tactics needed to enable sales success and achieve the desired results.

You assist product owners with market analysis and research, including competitor activity and voice of the customer - ensuring that the value propositions of our offerings fully align with the needs of the target markets we operate in. With the resulting product strategy (directed by the product owners) you then create messaging and positioning, launch plans and sales enablement tools – briefing in marketing communications where needed with the information they need to execute.
