Tessian protects every business’s mission by securing the human layer 💫

We're building intelligent security that works for human beings as they are, not how security policies would like them to be. Using machine learning technology, Tessian automatically predicts and eliminates advanced threats on email caused by human error - like data exfiltration, accidental data loss, business email compromise and phishing attacks - with minimal disruption to employees' workflow. As a result, employees are empowered to do their best work, without security getting in their way.

Tessian has raised a $65m Series C led by renowned security investors, March Capital (Crowdstrike, Knowbe4), with follow-on from Sequoia, Accel, Balderton, Latitude & Schroder Adveq, to further our mission to secure the human layer.

Founded in 2013, Tessian is backed by world-class venture capital investors and has hubs in San Francisco, Boston, Austin, and London.

We're open to this role being based in the UK, or the US (Eastern/Central time zone preferred)

Product Management at Tessian

We are looking for an exceptional Senior Product Manager to join the product team at Tessian. The role is a career defining opportunity for someone to play a pivotal role in both Tessian’s rapid growth and in reshaping the cybersecurity landscape through the development of Tessian’s Human Layer Security platform.

The product manager role can vary significantly from company to company. Product managers at Tessian are not ‘project managers’ tasked with delivering a roadmap dictated by someone else. They are also not ‘mini-CEOs’ who call all of the shots.

Product managers at Tessian own a product or product area. Within this area, product managers are responsible for a) delighting customers and b) driving Tessian’s growth. Product managers work with engineering, data science, and product design to shape and ship new products and functionality, and with Tessian’s go to market teams to make their product successful.

Our product, whilst highly technical, should deliver a best-in-class user experience where complexity is hidden. As a senior product manager you’ll be a creative, technical thinker who is as equally comfortable getting into the weeds of a specific problem as pulling back to ensure the product vision is successfully aligned to achieve our ambitious mission.

We are looking for someone with 3+ years of experience scaling and shipping products at high-growth technology companies. Experience with security or products built for enterprise is a bonus.

As a Senior Product Manager you will:

  • Identify opportunities that can change the trajectory of Tessian’s business
  • Manage the roadmap by prioritizing the highest impact initiatives from a wide range of inputs
  • Shape and ship new products and features, in collaboration with engineering, data science, and product design
  • Drive growth by ensuring Tessian’s value proposition is resonating in the market, in collaboration with Tessian’s go to market teams
  • Coach other product managers, and support horizontal product team initatives
  • Communicate successfully across the company to get buy in from the relevant stakeholders and generate excitement around what we’re building and our mission

Why we think you'll love it here 😍...

For summer 2021, we’re excited to announce what we call "Refreshian Summer" - where every single Tessian will be able to down tools at 1pm every Friday in July & August, and enjoy a long weekend during the sunniest months of the year!

All Tessians are part of the journey we’re on, so we offer equity options with every role and benchmark against other VC-backed companies to provide above market rate salaries for companies of our size.

Beyond this, there’s plenty more that makes Tessian a great place to work:

  • A full week of work-remote a year (for those who aren't fully remote!), in addition to 31 days of paid holiday (20 days PTO + 11 federal holidays)

  • An extra day of paid holiday (up to 5) for every year you're with us!

  • Curate your career with development experiences uniquely suited to you

  • We’re family friendly, with policies built to support you in all stages of life

  • High-quality MacOs tech kit for you to work on

  • Comprehensive & generous health insurance options

  • If you're relocating to join the team in person, we'll provide a contribution to help with your costs

  • On Fridays we stop early for a virtual happy hour (or, to just log off for the weekend!)

  • Classpass subsidy - which you can use for either in person or virtual classes

Coronavirus has changed how we work, and we’re currently working from home. During these times we’re supporting our team with:

  • A work-from-home subsidy for every new joiner to cover all your home office must-haves
  • Amazing Remote socials with food and drink budgets

And there’s plenty to look forward to once we’re back in the office too (we expect to have an East-coast (Boston) & West-coast (San Francisco) office presence:

  • An array of breakfast options, delicious snacks, drinks and a top-of-the-range coffee machine
  • Flexible work from home policy (for those who aren't already fully remote)
  • Team lunch provided once a week
  • Whole team socials every quarter
  • Dinner budget for those times you just can’t tear yourself away
