Overview

VP of Product Management, Quest Information Management


It’s been said that, “A great product manager has the brain of an engineer, the heart of a designer, and the tongue of a diplomat.”  Does this sound like you?

 

Quest is seeking the right leader to direct a talented team of product managers who define product strategy, are passionate about helping customers solve real problems, and collaborate exceptionally well with engineers, sales, support, marketing and functions across the organization. This person will report to the President and General Manager and be a key contributor to the senior leadership team.

 

The Information Management business covers a variety of applications and databases including Oracle, SQL Server, MySQL, PostgreSQL, MongoDB, Hadoop, DB2, and SAP/Sybase. We help our customers better manage, monitor, and optimize their mission critical applications and databases. We are driving major initiatives which include the development of next-generation database tools as well as introducing SaaS solutions. It is an exciting time to be a part of the Information Management team.

 

 

Responsibilities

Are you a proven leader who has an uncanny knack for getting things done? Does the idea of a broad portfolio with products at varying stages in the lifecycle stimulate rather than startle you? Do you like the idea of bringing new products to market whilst appreciating the value of continuing to serve customers and the business with proven products? Do you smile at the thought of customer’s consistently using words “love” and “delight” to describe our products?

 

 

If this sounds like you and you are the sort of person that often finds yourself thinking about the optimal way to work through a grocery store, you may want to reach out for more information.  The person who fills this vital role will be managing the performance of a diverse portfolio of $225M+. There will be no shortage of stakeholders and people with a strong opinions about the direction of products they care deeply about; that’s where your diplomatic skills will come in. You’ll be able to work with your team to develop and communicate clear product strategies aligned with the organizations goals. A deep empathy for your customer’s experience serves as your guiding light. You’ll be joining a fun, talented group of senior leaders who appreciate our customers and teams, and have an unwavering commitment to achieve results.

Ideally you’ll also have:

  • A flair for motivating people and leading a team… and can share your stories
  • A deep understanding about how software products actually get built
  • An ability to simplify the complex
  • Experience successfully bringing excellent software products to market. *Bonus if that was in the database realm

  • Expertise in recognizing market opportunity
  • Experience with complex systems, budgets, and strategies to balance competing interests
  • Lessons learned along the way from partnerships, OEM, and other third party considerations
  • A collaborative style
  • 10 years+ product management experience
