VMware's Cloud Transition team within the Customer Experience and Success organization has a bold mission - to transition our on-premises customers to cloud, and to drive a consistent VMware-wide go-to-market strategy, customer journey, and operational framework to accelerate SaaS adoption and consumption.

Job Role and Responsibilities:

We are seeking an experienced product marketer to drive the transition and the consumption of our services as customers navigate their journey to the cloud.

Create both internal- and external-facing content (blogs, slides, briefs, papers, multimedia, reference architectures, etc.) aligned to campaigns, customer needs, and competitive threats.
  • Enablement. Ready our field, partners and customer success teams to carry the offer to market and to drive consumption. Help teams deliver the message with consistency and confidence through ongoing engagements and assets. Actively support teams in customer conversations as needed and guide them through the process.

Required Skills & Experience:

  • 5+ years of experience in Information Technology, Cloud products/services, and SaaS offerings within B2B space
  • 3+ years of relevant work experience in Product Marketing
  • Must be well-versed in GTM strategy and product marketing through digital transformation (e.g. licensed-based to SaaS)
  • Ability to create customer-facing presentation content independently, author detailed market research documents, and conduct offer proposals
  • Ability to analyze and synthesize large volume of data and deal with complex uncertain scenarios and incomplete information
  • Ability to communicate at an executive level with compelling, clear, logical and data driven arguments
  • Strong presentation and interpersonal skills, comfortable delivering presentations to large audiences on an international scale.
