VMware Sr Product Manager, VMware Marketplace Portal - Opportunity for Working Remotely in Phoenix, Arizona
Ready to build? So are we!
Come join VMware Marketplace (https://marketplace.cloud.vmware.com/) , part of the new and exciting Modern Applications Business Unit (MAPBU) team, made up of products and services under the Tanzu portfolio (https://tanzu.vmware.com/tanzu) to help customers build, run, and manage their most important applications.
The VMware Marketplace is an online catalog of software products published by independent software vendors and VMware itself. We allow publishers to package, validate and then publish their solutions in several form factors across multiple target deployment platforms. VMware customers can browse, validate, purchase, and then deploy software products from the VMware Marketplace into their infrastructure.
The Marketplace sits at the intersection of business, technology and commerce.
Tight feedback loops drive our processes. We value test-driven development, retrospectives, continuous integration, data-informed decision making, and working at a sustainable pace. We nurture psychological safety within teams and empower them to drive the changes necessary to obtain successful outcomes. We build software and solve problems collaboratively. Teammates are always accessible to lend a helping hand. The marketplace team is distributed around the US, Europe and India.
You have seen the power of empowered, balanced teams and believe in Outcomes over Output (https://vimeo.com/206617354/a4f8a1f8e8) . You have strong product instincts, but more importantly have an appreciation for and understanding of data-informed decision making, lean startup, agile and user-centered design values, principles, and practices. You are excited by the user and business value that technology can unlock. You thrive in a complex ecosystem, collecting, sharing, and synthesizing input from many directions and enabling the teams that you work with to continuously deliver customer value. You believe in doing the right thing and doing what works. #TeamTanzu #VMwareMarketplace
