* Work closely with product owners and delivery teams to execute on an ambitious roadmap
* Enable development teams to access SaaS applications using the exposed APIs
* Stay abreast of changes for existing SaaS partnerships. Interact with SaaS vendors; understand use cases and help facilitate discussions on how we can leverage the partnerships to be mutually beneficial. - Remove obstacles and keep processes lean to get functionality in the hands of customers quickly
* Contribute to the knowledge base, wiki and other Flexera resources to help build the best customer experience.
* Be responsible for the effectiveness and continuous improvement of the process being followed by the team
* Maintain open honest communication between everyone involved with the project

You'll be expected to have:

* Experience in managing and developing partnerships and can demonstrate processes or programs you have been involved in that have proven to be successful
* Ability to reason about software, approaches and expectations from a high level
* Familiarity with web APIs, including REST
* Superb communication skills to work with 3rd party SaaS vendors

Some perks of working at Flexera:

* A welcoming and casual office environment
* A competitive salary and benefits package
* The Flexera spirit of innovation and experimentation, including regular hackathons for the entire company as well as weekly iTime (innovation time) for engineers where we can pursue projects that involve some sort of technological exploration of ideas that are novel, interesting and foster professional growth. (Some of our open source projects have come out of iTime.)

Sounds good? Join us and collaborate with very talented and passionate colleagues to push the boundaries of cloud computing.

We strive for diversity in the workplace and encourage those from underrepresented groups in technology to apply.
