Who We Are

Astronauts needed for a mission.

At the risk of sounding immodest, SecureLink may be the coolest company you’ve never heard of. After 14 years in business, we announced a strategic investment from Vista Equity Partners in 2017. Vista is the leading technology investment firm focusing exclusively on software, data, and technology-enabled companies. With our partners, existing customers, products and people, we are excited to launch the company to a higher orbit.

SecureLink is the leading platform for secure, remote support of enterprise software. Our customers are top-tier names in healthcare, gaming, government, retail, legal and other highly-regulated industries.

SecureLink’s world headquarters in West Austin is called the Hill Country Spaceship - a great facility we believe you would be proud to call your workplace.  https://www.securelink.com/about/tourthespaceship/

 

What You’ll Do

The SecureLink product management team is looking to add a Product Associate to the team.  SecureLink Product Management is responsible for three key areas within the business – (1) defining development priorities and projects, (2) owning market intelligence and strategy and (3) launching product and ensuring organizational enablement of new releases and/or products.

The Product Associate will be responsible for general support of the team on analysis, project management as well as own key deliverables and processes within the product team across these three areas.  The Product Associate will report directly the Vice President of Product Management but will support the entire product team. Day-to-day responsibilities include:

  • Product launch process management
  • Ad hoc data and market analysis in support of business cases and other strategic initiatives
  • Desktop research into competitors and potential partners
  • Technical writing of key documentation including positioning documents and release notes
  • Liaising with marketing to ensure copy is technically accurate and aligned with positioning
  • Maintenance of new feature JIRA tickets and backlog management including:
    • Following up on new requests to ensure all key data is captured especially business rationale/problem statement
    • Assurance that worked tickets are updated/spliced to ensure alignment on what is being developed and delivered, and what functionality may still be outstanding
    • Running and maintaining new feature grooming process

Skills & Requirements

What You’ll Need

The most important trait for this candidate is a strong intellectual curiosity and passion for learning and problem-solving.  This role does not require previous product management experience but a strong interest in learning the product management discipline is a must.

 

The ideal candidate will have a technical bend, ideally with a computer science or engineering education or background and 1-3 years of on the job experience.  Experience in technical writing for an enterprise software organization would be a huge plus, but none of these are required for the right candidate.

 

Why Choose Us

SecureLink doesn’t just Have Fun Creating Value Over the Long Run (HFCV/LR) for our customers and shareholders, we Have Fun Creating Value in the lives and careers of our employees. Benefits and perks include:

  • Health: Medical, dental and vision insurance - SecureLink foots the whole bill for employees and subsidizes dependent coverage at 75%!
  • Wellness: SecureLink kicks cash into your HSA, $2,500 for those with individual coverage and $5,000 for those with family coverage. Employees are provided with a standing desk, healthy snacks, and have free access to an onsite gym.

What Else?

Happy and successful SecureLink employees embrace the company’s mission to have fun creating value over the long run. Great employees have three attributes that make them “slinky”. These are 1) excellence at their position, 2) eagerness to grow and improve and 3) a true sense of responsibility to meaningfully contribute to the company, customers, and culture.

If you are just looking for another job, this is not the place for you.  We like to laugh and be around happy, smart, interesting, self-motivated and “slinky” people.  Slackers, grumps, and pessimists need not apply.

Location

Rising from the hill country on the western edge of Austin, the SecureLink Space Ship was built for the special astronauts who work here every day.

An Insider's view of SecureLink

What's something quirky about your company?

It's our ode to space missions and astronauts! Walk inside and you'll find life-sized model astronauts, conference rooms named after astronauts, space wallpaper, space mission posters, and more. To drive this theme home, every new employee is encouraged to try out the space simulator in our room dedicated to virtual reality (it's awesome!).

Ike

Sales Operations

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

One of the best things about working here is that I get to interact with so many smart, talented people. Everyone is always willing to lend a hand to help pull the company forward. There are no corporate politics and we are all open and honest with each other. The open communication leads to a lot less stress than at other companies I've worked.

Joe

President & COO

What makes someone successful on your team?

Intelligence, creativity and a “play to win” attitude. We have a top of the line product and pride ourselves in providing a top of the line sales/support/implementation experience for our customers.

Carrie

Customer Success Manager

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

The best idea wins! From the kitchen staff to the executive team, we are always looking for innovation. Right now, our marketing team is launching a campaign featuring old-school combination locks: “Remember when security was this easy?” It didn’t matter that the idea came from the finance department- it’s clever and we ran with it!

Jeff

CEO & Co-Founder

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

The best idea wins. It’s a perspective that permeates the whole company - we’ve even formalized it into the way we run things, we call it the goals process. Everyone decides which efforts they think are most critical, then makes it happen. It’s a bottom up way to make sure the best ideas win and our company keeps moving in the right direction.
