Lightbits’ mission is to lead the cloud-native data center transformation by delivering scalable and efficient software defined storage that is easy to consume. Founded in 2016, Lightbits brings the agility of hyperscale storage to private clouds and edge clouds. We are backed by strategic investors including Cisco Investments, Dell Technologies Capital, Intel Capital, and Micron, as well as top investors and VCs. We are looking for an experienced, bold and hands-on Sr. Product Manager who would like to join our product team. The position is based in Israel. The world is going “cloud native” and the demands of different application environments on storage to accomplish this transformation vary with the environment chosen. Whether this environment is VMware, VMware Tanzu, basic Kubernetes, OpenShift or Openstack, they all place unique demands on storage, especially in the areas of provisioning and integration. In this role, the product manager will focus on building next-generation solutions for private cloud application environments through analysis and understanding of targeted markets, market trends, new technology, customer business issues and the competitive environment. Initially, the focus will be on VMware and Kubernetes. The product manager works closely with product development and the core product manager to define and create ecosystem plugins, drivers, products/integrations (such as vCenter plugins, CSI drivers) and validates early product definitions with customers. This role will involve analyzing the current solution/integration portfolio to identify gaps and develop a roadmap to bridge the same. This entails a firm understanding of the business case (current and potential revenue) and the necessary competitive positioning to allow solutions marketing team to execute the go-to-market initiatives.
