About The Role

As a Senior Product Manager at Coalition, you will own one of the company's strategic product areas and have material impact on business outcomes.

  • You will partner with Engineering and Design to define detailed feature specifications and user experience, track dependencies, and manage projects with efficient processes.
  • You will make data-driven product decisions based on metric-driven analysis and qualitative user feedback, prioritizing ruthlessly to make swift tradeoffs and deliver the roadmap.

  • You will be a thought-leader in the space and help strengthen Coalition’s security brand.
