Job Description

Ready for a unique opportunity to make a substantial impact with a disruptive tech company? Tigera is funded by top-tier VCs, has global 100 customers, an amazing product, and a brilliant team. If you have the drive and like to succeed in a collaborative environment, we want to talk to you. Tigera has operations in the San Francisco Bay Area; Vancouver, BC; Cork, Ireland; and the UK.

As a Technical Product Marketing Manager for Tigera, you will help plan, execute, and communicate the technical value proposition of Calico products. In this role, you will build technical narrative and content to communicate Calico products’ capabilities and benefits. You will reinforce this with product collateral, explainer content, technical blogs, demos, and provide feedback to the product team to build a product-led growth path. The role involves ownership and project management of technical product marketing initiatives and close collaboration with others in product marketing, developer relations, sales, sales engineering, product management, and engineering.

The position is an excellent opportunity at a growing cyber-security startup, and may be based out of either our San Francisco; San Jose; Vancouver B.C.; or Cork, Ireland, offices. Strong experience in technical product marketing or sales engineering within enterprise software is critical.



  • Product positioning: You will connect Kubernetes security and observability trends with Calico products to build technical product positioning and messages for critical use cases
  • Product evangelism: You will evangelize and demonstrate the value of Calico products to internal and external audiences, such as solution architects, prospects, analysts, and customers—through demos, blogs, whitepapers, “how-to” content, webinars, events, and tradeshows
  • Product launches: You will be a critical part of product launches to build technical product content (demos and videos), and where necessary, develop messaging, pitch Tigera’s technology to analysts and press, develop product collateral and sales tools, and support the launch plan
  • Product Led Growth: You will design and deliver technical content to support the online buyer journey through product messaging, third-party validation, explainer videos, demos, and tutorials
  • Competitive analysis: You will stay on top of a very dynamic and fast-changing cloud-native Kubernetes landscape. You will understand competitor’s offerings, educate the rest of the organization, and refine our positioning, messaging, and sales tools
  • Sales tools: You will build technical product presentations, whitepapers, best practices technical guides, product videos, technical briefs, and other tools to enable sales and outbound marketing teams to communicate Calico's story effectively
  • Partnerships: You will support partnership-related technical product marketing activities


  • Bachelor of Science degree in computer science or related discipline, or equivalent work experience
  • 5+ years of experience in technical product marketing, product management, or solutions engineering in enterprise software
  • 2+ years of DevOps/security/networking industry and/or practitioner (SRE, developer, software engineering, platform engineering, CloudSecOps) experience—preferably with hands-on experience using IT technologies
  • Experience with Rancher, VMWare Tanzu, Red Hat OpenShift, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Microsoft Azure (certification is preferred)
  • Strong preference for applicants with experience handling and supporting cloud infrastructure, containers/Kubernetes, serverless functions, microservices, and security
  • A passion for developing persuasive content and a knack for using new software tools—from video screen-capture and editing to collaboration software and more
  • Passionate about ground-breaking technology, with strong written and verbal communication skills
  • Self-starter who truly enjoys working in a fast-paced, innovative software company
