Role

Splunk is looking for a seasoned and deeply technical Product Manager to drive the future of query, language, and data platform services at Splunk.

You will use your understanding of the data platforms, analytics, and big data ecosystem to synthesize ideas that improve Splunk's data platform service offering. Your cross-team collaboration skills will enable those improvements to be conceptualized and delivered to drive meaningful and impactful business outcomes.

You will merge attention to technical detail with the ability to understand and align to business imperatives while working hand-in-glove with cross-functional execution teams to drive customer insights and inputs directly into the development process.

Requirements

  • 5+ years of experience in product management

  • Experience as a Product Manager building search platform services/products focused on large scale search processing, query language, high availability, performance, and scalability
