Splunk is seeking a strong product leader to drive both the strategy and execution of the developer program for its next generation cloud developer platform. The ability to successfully create and expand applications is one of the first core steps to unlocking value for our customers, and thus a critical part of the platform. This roll will define how the developer program is packaged and delivered to our developers, customers and partners, who are developing content for our next generation cloud platform. You will need to handle dependencies that may come up in both frontend and backend development in order to deliver value to developers and customers.

You are organized, positive, creative, analytical, and focused on the customer and partners at all times. You know when to make decisions and when to ask questions. This is an execution-focused role: You maintain a strong long-term vision that aligns with the product strategy. At the same time, you are committed to improving the developer experience at every step of the way. This requires a customer-focused product management professional with excellent interpersonal skills, and a track record of success.


  • Strategy: roadmap planning, uncovering customer and competitor insights to influence long-term developer program investments
  • Research: persona identification, market research, integration ecosystem vendors and ISV's

You are a hands-on product manager who can execute and evangelize a transformative vision for Splunk’s developers. In this role, you will iron out highly complex problems, gain insight into developer challenges, business goals and increase Splunk’s adoption across our customer base. Everything you build will need to be tracked, measured and reported. You will be key to evolving Splunk’s value chain in the marketplace and to impact our top-line growth.


  • You have 5+ years of experience in product management
  • You can navigate the trade-offs between long-term technical investments and short-term customer focused product iterations.
