Our Mission

At Palo Alto Networks® everything starts and ends with our mission:

Being the cybersecurity partner of choice, protecting our digital way of life.

We have the vision of a world where each day is safer and more secure than the one before. These aren’t easy goals to accomplish – but we’re not here for easy. We’re here for better. We are a company built on the foundation of challenging and disrupting the way things are done, and we’re looking for innovators who are as committed to shaping the future of cybersecurity as we are.

We’re changing the nature of work. Palo Alto Networks is evolving to meet the needs of our employees now and in the future through FLEXWORK, our approach to how we work. From benefits to learning, location to leadership, we’ve rethought and recreated every aspect of the employee experience at Palo Alto Networks.  And because it FLEXes around each individual employee based on their individual choices, employees are empowered to push boundaries and help us all evolve, together. 

Your Career

We're looking for a resourceful product manager to implement and own our public sector product strategy for Cortex. Our team delivers next generation security operations products to the most critical, complex, and targeted networks in the world.   

As a highly skilled professional motivated by your passion for delivering impactful products addressing Public Sector missions, you will: 

  • Be a trusted partner to customer technical and operational mission owners

  • Lead cross-functional product initiatives across Palo Alto Networks to drive product strategy, roadmap, and ultimately deliver superior mission outcomes to our Public Sector customers 

Your Impact

  • Drive Public Sector product strategy and roadmap for one or more SaaS products and product features

  • Create user stories for current and future products based on the Public Sector market’s critical security operations problems

  • Collaborate cross-functionally with Engineering, Design, Data Science, Customer Success, Sales, leadership, and others to understand workflows and communicate your vision

  • Prioritize roadmap requests and write product requirements; collect feedback from users, prioritize and balance resources appropriately

  • Create core processes and engage in ongoing management of Product responsibilities such as feature releases, release cycles, and bug bashes

Your Experience

  • Professional experience supporting government customers/users in a technical, product, or a product-adjacent role

  • You have a demonstrated experience communicating complex technical concepts to multi-disciplinary audiences via written and verbal presentations

  • Curiosity; you ask “why” and dig deep to develop your product vision while still delivering results within time constraints

  • Ability to (nicely) persuade and influence others; ability to collaborate with technical and cross-functional teams who may not report into you to get things done

  • Comfort with ambiguity and making decisions with imperfect information

  • Must be willing and able to obtain a government clearance

Our Commitment

We’re trailblazers that dream big, take risks, and challenge cybersecurity’s status quo. It’s simple: we can’t accomplish our mission without diverse teams innovating, together.
