The Service Cloud product team is looking for a Senior Product Manager with a track record of driving new product capabilities from initial concept to successful delivery and market adoption. This product management role will help guide the future of the LiveMessage product, Salesforce's conversational, mobile messaging product, and extend our early to market leadership position. Owning the experience that allows companies to interact with users through their native messaging applications (SMS, Facebook, LINE, WeChat, etc) and marrying it with CRM data is fundamental. This team owns the entire LiveMessage product including message delivery platform, agent/ customer experience within Console, and features leveraging APIs from 3 rd party messaging applications. This role calls for a strong, proactive leader capable of autonomously driving multiple projects in parallel and technology savvy in deciding which mobile support capabilities to deliver as part of a world class customer service experience. Product managers who thrive in a fast paced, collaborative environment and love working with the emerging mobile technologies should apply.
