Lead Product Manager, InsightIDR

Security Operations teams face a daunting daily challenge: find evidence of attackers in their networks and respond quickly and effectively to them. We are looking for a Lead Product Manager to shape the direction of InsightIDR’s detection capabilities. You will have the opportunity to work with a full-time detection engineering team and experienced security analysts from our world-class Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service. Together you will deliver product that solves customer problems for managing a large library of detection rules, keeping those detection rules properly tuned and up-to-date, collecting and using threat intelligence, triaging alerts at scale based on these detection rules using data-driven methods, and more.

In addition to product contributions, we are looking for someone who seeks to be on a growth path to product leadership. This role will give you the opportunity to get started on that journey.  You will manage two to three Boston-based product managers who need guidance and coaching as they develop in their careers. Over time, the role will have the opportunity to grow into Manager, Sr. Manager, and Director roles.

This role is Boston-based so that the product manager may establish strong relationships with our Boston-based engineering and PM teams. We have flexible schedules and currently encourage, but do not require, being in the office three days a week.

  • Coach and conduct performance management tasks for two to three product managers

  • Work with teams across multiple time zones (mostly US East Coast and Ireland)
