GoDaddy’s (NYSE: GDDY) mission is to be a growth partner to everyday entrepreneurs, the security group aims to achieve that by helping them do it securely.
Today the group has deep roots in securing presence, while important, the group is on a path to widen the portfolios breadth looking into new ways that we can help secure the business. We are in search of a leader that can help chart that path.
The security group is on a mission to make security seamless, transparent and accessible to the every day entrepreneur. A critical, underserved, audience of the web that coincidently makes up a critical portion of the web fabric. Security is nuanced, it's complex, and it's our job to simplify that process for them.
As the leader of this group, you will be part of the groups leadership team helping to define the future of the products portfolio, while being intimately responsible for the execution of the day to day operations. You, as the Sr. Director of Product Management for security, will partner with the engineering, marketing and care leaders to lead various aspects of planning and execution for GoDaddy's security suite. You will help our customers secure businesses across a number of different domains helping to establish GoDaddy as a trusted partner.
In this role, you will work closely with Engineering, Marketing and Care leadership to architect and deploy GoDaddy's security suite of products. The job will include the creation of product strategy, roadmaps and other strategically important product families within the Security Business Unit (SBU).
Some of your responsibilities may include:
- Be willing to get your hands dirty, leading from the front with partners and your own team.
- Coach and mentor Junior Product Managers, providing servant leadership to help the team be successful as a whole.
- Create and operationalize new products and services that enhance our customers security footing, including forecasting, modeling and managing various product lines.
- Partner with the engineering leaders to help lead and take a hands-on approach to the entire software development life-cycle.
- Prioritize resources appropriately across various projects, juggling current customer needs with longer-term product roadmap needs (weighing, balancing, and communicating the tradeoffs, as needed).
- Collaborate closely with our partner teams in SLT, XLT, CTO, CIO, Finance, Marketing, Sales, Support, and product teams within GoDaddy.
- Serve as an industry spokesperson and advocate in championing the offerings to customers and industry.
- Potential representation in third-party working groups and forums within the security industry as needed (e.g., Certification Authority Browser Forum (CA/Browser Forum))
- Establish a Product Management framework for the group that is repeatable and scaleable, being considerate of the need to ship code, and avoiding the pitfalls of processes for the sake of processes.
This is not a comprehensive list, and it's not meant to be. To be successful in this group you must be willing to be flexible and have an appetite for pushing the boundaries, working nimbly, and be ok with ambiguity. This is a new role, and in many ways, we don't know what we don't know and so you can expect to be a critical part in defining the exact responsibilities.
What you can expect is that we are probably not what you expect for a product group, we thrive in unorthodox processes, we don't take ourselves too seriously, we have a hard time accepting obstacles as show-stoppers, and are not afraid to push the limits and each other to be the best versions of ourselves. We argue, we debate, and we bicker, but we show up because we care and we are not afraid to wear that passion on our sleeves.
