In addition to embedding with the delivery team, Product owners at Redox work closely with all aspects of the company, including product marketing, sales, engineering, and customer success.

Responsibilities:

  • Collaborate with sales engineers, the product marketing team, and company executive leadership to transform big picture strategy into detailed user stories

  • Tackle Challenging Problems Everyday. There is no roadmap for what we are building, so you’ll have the backing and support of talented engineers and security practitioners to make sure you have what you need to be successful.

  • Work Anywhere. (Within the US) We want to have the best people at Redox - no matter where you call home.  All Redox employees are encouraged to live and work wherever they're happiest. All you need is power, wifi, and a computer and you’re good to go. We also run a number of co-located working spaces across many US cities if you prefer an office environment.

  • Flexible Working. Take a trip somewhere fun, stay home to recover from being sick, or have a staycation to unplug and recharge. Our best work happens when we feel fresh and inspired. We leave it up to you to decide when you need to take breaks and encourage you to make time for adventure and discovery.

  • Health & Dental from Day 1. Working in healthcare makes you understand all the challenges life can throw at you. Your health and dental coverage starts when you do to make sure you're always covered.  We provide health and dental insurance for employees, spouses, domestic partners, and dependents, as well as life and disability insurance.

  • Parental Leave. As your family grows, it’s important that you’re there and have time to figure out what your family’s new norm is.  You can take 12 weeks of paid time off within the first year of your new addition arriving. We know that they need you and we have your back.

  • Productivity Fund. We want you to be able to set up a workspace that allows you to perform at your very best.  All Redox employees receive an annual discretionary stipend so you can select what helps you be productive.  

  • 401k. We offer an optional, customizable and flexible 401k plan for you to plan for your financial future on your terms.
