Yammer is looking for a Product Manager to lead a growing cross-functional London Engineering team as we forever change. Traditionally, enterprise software has been built through a fairly standard process. While this multiyear process—from ideation to launch—is predictable, it’s also predictably flawed: the increasing pace of change means that the output of this process will necessarily miss customers’ changing needs. Fortunately, there’s a new and more effective way to build enterprise software. Adapted from consumer applications, Yammer is leveraging a data-driven, rapid-iteration methodology to deliver more value to both customers and end users, while maintaining the strict security parameters demanded in the enterprise space. It’s because of this approach, and the adoption of a centralized vision with decentralized execution, that Yammer is able to build software that continuously evolves as the needs of our users evolve, creating a product that people voluntarily choose to use. Yammer is more than collaboration software; it’s a tool for rewriting your company’s culture.
Companies use Yammer to discuss ideas, plans, problems, and disagreements openly. We know this because it’s the way we do business ourselves. At Yammer we’re looking for talented, driven people to help us change the daily lives of tens of millions of users. Rarely will you find a chance to be part of a team so small with an impact so large.
