MobiledgeX is building a Distributed Edge Cloud and carrier-independent mobile developer ecosystem for the next generation of AR/VR applications and IOT devices for Pervasive & Immersive applications.
Our focus is on the distributed platform for a new generation of applications (AR/VR, Drones, Cars, Gaming, Entertainment) that generate large amounts of data that need to be processed in a latency-sensitive manner. We are anticipating unprecedented growth in the coming 12 months and so there is no better time to join the team.
Who we are looking for:
Edge computing is emerging as the new massively distributed frontier that blends the physical and virtual works, enabling our mobile developer community to solve problems in new ways and deliver new experiences not available before
We are changing the way service providers make their edge cloud infrastructure accessible to mobile developers who are building the next-generation of distributed applications. We are looking for an experienced Product Manager who will be responsible for building the infrastructure, container and virtualization stacks together with an abstraction layer that allows MobiledgeX to leverage operator compute-storage-network resources distributed globally. The right candidate loves working on complex problems and getting things done. You will get to work with an experienced team of brilliant people in a dynamic environment to grow a new business that is revolutionizing the edge cloud computing world. Successful candidates will have experience leading feature roadmaps for building virtualization software stacks and/or hyper-converged infrastructure platforms.
What you will do:
Lead the product feature planning process and ensure that MobiledgeX’s distributed edge cloud resources (“cloudlets”) meet the requirements of our customers
Understand the landscape of infrastructure virtualization solutions – both public (AWS, Azure, GCP) and private stacks (OpenStack, VMware, bare metal as a service)
You will work with our edge cloud supply-side partners (global tier-1 service providers) in the context of their 5G roadmaps
Work closely with the architecture and engineering teams as their subject matter expert for the virtualization and cluster management of edge compute resources
Determine the product roadmap: create, prioritize, and support ongoing tasks
Identify and capture key requirements by working closely with MobiledgeX customers and integrating new service provider partners with a range of cloud infrastructure and virtualization stacks
Work with Product Marketing to provide technical detail for content and presentations
Represent MobiledgeX’s product line with customers, the company’s thought leadership and its innovation in infrastructure virtualization for massively distributed environments
What you need:
5+ years of work experience as a Product Manager
Have worked as a Product Manager enabling Commercial Team selling to Telecom Operators accounts
Have worked as a Product Manager in datacenter technologies including virtualization, storage, networking and/or public clouds
Deep technical understanding of what it takes to build highly-available and scalable distributed systems. Familiarity with multi-tenant, multi-site, multi-region distributed systems
Define, monitor and react to key product and segment metrics (for example, cost structures of our edge cloud suppliers and price elasticity of our customer’s demand to offload mobile functions)
Knowledge of CPU, memory and storage product and market trends. Understanding of GPU virtualization and SmartNIC use cases is a strong plus
Expert-level knowledge of Linux and cloud-scale networking including expertise with at least one SDN solution of NFV orchestration platform
Superb written and verbal communication skills characterized by clarity and brevity
Ability to influence people at all levels across a broad variety of job functions
Solid understanding of open source business models and eagerness to participate in open source projects such as OCP, OpenCellular/TI, TIP, and GSMA
