Description

Position at Logitech

Global Product Marketing Manager, Software Applications

Logitech is a world leader in products that connect people to their digital experiences. With a broad portfolio of interface devices, Logitech’s leadership in innovation encompasses a wide variety of corded and cordless peripherals along with software that enhances the user experience. Logitech is at the forefront of design and is creatively driving a richer experience for digital interactions.

The Role:

This role is in Creativity & Productivity (C&P), the biggest division of Logitech, consisting of the technologies--wireless protocols, devices, software applications--that help people be at their creative and productive best while using their computer setup for work or leisure, in the office or at home. Our C&P business is a key pillar of Logitech’s future as a global brand known for great design and exceptional user experiences.

A critical component to exceptional user experiences is software applications that enable people to do unexpected things with their wireless devices. Change what mouse controls do when editing video or analyzing data in spreadsheets. Easily prevent embarrassment while in a video conference meeting. Software will drive our innovation to better help people create, communicate, learn and work. Yet, today our software applications are utilized mostly by more advanced users. It’s like their secret (and ours) weapon--we want the world to know!

Speaking of work, according to leading analysts we surpassed 1 billion knowledge workers (of 7.75 billion people) globally--people who “think” for a living and do most of their work on computers. That means Logitech software will increasingly help organizations help their people work productively with good wellbeing and secure corporate data/systems.

That is why we have an opportunity to elevate our software application marketing. We want to ensure that millions of Logitech customers are excited to fully optimize what their Logitech products can do for them when they use our application software.

Therefore, we created this new role to bring to the software product management team a marketing and communications partner. Success will be measured in awareness/consideration, perceptions, downloads, lead/trial/conversion generation, usage behaviors, customer base penetration. We need a marketing leader who can get us there.

Your Contribution:

  • Marketing toolkits. Deliver comprehensive marketing toolkits to the commercial organizations including business rationale, data, insights, strategies, creative and content assets for the commercial organizations to activate and execute around the globe.

Therefore, the person who would thrive in this role most likely has experience initiating and/or growing software businesses from within larger organizations or as start-ups. Further, while this role is foremost focused on marketing communications, due to its dependence on other research & analysis, product management, business development and other functions, a career consisting of varying types of marketing roles will be valued.

Logitech is the sweet spot for people who are passionate about products, making a mark, and having fun doing it. As a company, we’re small and flexible enough for every person to take initiative and make things happen. But we’re big enough in our portfolio, and reach, for those actions to have a global impact. That’s a pretty sweet spot to be in and we’re always striving to keep it that way.
