As a product marketing manager, you will be in charge of one of Synology’s business solutions — with the objective of making it successful in terms of awareness and adoption. You act as a two-way bridge between your product and the market: by developing a clear strategy and mobilize all available resources when a product goes to market, and by bringing customer and market insights back to research and development to ensure the best product/market fit. Responsibilities include:
1. Go-to-Market Strategies: define product positioning and messaging, and develop key strategies towards customer acquisition and market share.
2. Product Launch: create launch plans, set objectives and key results, and coordinate with global sales, marketing, and support teams for effective execution. Ensure that successful experience can be replicated on a larger scale.
3. Sales Enablement: deliver high-quality training, sales kit, competitor analysis, and other required content to global sales teams, getting them on board and ready to promote your product. Assist them in planning and securing key projects.
4. Market Intelligence: be an expert of your product, market, and competition. Follow technology and market trends closely, analyze customer feedback systematically, and always be sensitive to potential opportunities or gaps between a product and its market.
5. Evangelist: build a strong narrative of what a product is created to change, why this is important, and where it will go. Be the spokesperson of your product to users, channel partners, media, and other stakeholders.
1. At least 3 years of experience in the cloud, virtualization or storage industry, preferably in product marketing, pre-sales or product management.
