Ready to build? So are we.
Come join VMware's Cloud Marketplace, part of the new and ex-citing Modern Applications Business Unit (MAPBU) team made up of products and services under the Tanzu portfolio to help customers build, run, and manage their most important applications. We help VMware partners publish and distribute their products across multiple platforms. 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.
As a Product Manager of the ISV Onboarding platform, you will be responsible for a product that's purpose built for ISVs to help package, validate and publish developers to boost feature velocity and for operations teams to deliver world-class uptime.
You have seen the power of empowered, balanced teams and believe in Outcomes over Output. 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. To learn more about Tanzu watch this video #TeamTanzu
