Description:

Are you passionate about Agile and Lean Startup product development? Do you want to be part of a highly skilled team and have major international technology companies as your customers? Apply for this role!

 

Riscure is a world renowned security lab, specialized in building advanced security test tools and performing evaluations of security sensitive consumer devices, such as mobile phones, smart cards, embedded chipsets and set-top boxes. We have 80 employees with mixed technical and academic backgrounds working from offices in Delft, The Netherlands and San Francisco, USA.

 

The Product Manager is in charge of Riscure's product roadmap. Our product portfolio consists of security test equipment that we provide to technology manufacturers, test laboratories and governments agencies across the world.

In this role you are responsible for product market fit of new products and product upgrades, for the pricing strategy and for providing our sales team and resellers with excellent promotion material. Riscure's main portfolio of products is for side channel testing of chip technology which is a niche market in the security field. Over the past 10 years Riscure has become worldwide market leader on these test tools. The hardware and software of our products are largely developed in-house. For some components we also work together with suppliers, for instance for high-end microscope equipment. Because of new attack techniques that continue to become relevant we never run out of ideas on what to implement next; it is your job to prioritize on the most valuable topics.

 

In the past 7 months Riscure adjusted its product strategy to the sticky growth model in Lean Startup supported by Agile development. We have brought our activities in line with this strategy and in the role of Product Manager you are the main driver for the continuation of this successful journey. You report to the CCO (Chief Commercial Officer) of Riscure. Our development team consists of highly skilled individuals with the following backgrounds: software engineering, electrical engineering, analogue and digital hardware, information security and cryptography. In this role you also act as product owner and you constantly interact with all stakeholders inside and outside the company in order to understand user experience, prioritize what to work on and to promote the products to others at Riscure. Besides a small core development team we have a large pool of security analysts at Riscure that also use the test tools and that perform development activities on them which you can use to commercialize to customers. One of your strategic goals is to streamline these two development processes to increase the overall benefits for Riscure and its customers.
