With your knowledge of cloud computing, secure architecture design, advanced analytics, software development environments, and software as a service, you will help grow our scalable data and analytics-powered products. You will be shaping the future of how SAS technologies align with the transformative journey that customers have embarked on to incorporate data integration, analytics and modelOps into their business processes. 

Working closely with R&D, you will craft new product features that help data engineers, data scientists, and AI/ML architects navigate the analytics lifecycle more effectively in areas like data engineering, visualization, application development, and ops activities. You will play a strategic role with partners in sales, marketing, customer support and enablement organizations as you communicate product content and knowledge to internal constituents and support the external presence of SAS and our offerings.

 You will:

  • Define and prioritize product requirements based on business drivers, customer inputs, market direction, and field contribution.
  • Translate business requirements into technical, functional, and non-functional requirements.
  • Define user personas and write use cases.
  • Drive product development and collaborate with software development teams based on requirements management, risk management, risk mitigation, and product lifecycles.
  • Support product launches as primary content provider to facilitate knowledge transfer of product functionality to marketing and sales.
  • Present product vision, roadmap, and software demonstrations to internal constituents, customers, and others.
  • Identify new market opportunities and evaluate emerging technology and business issues that may present opportunities or threats to the company.
  • Serve as a product champion by analyzing external market trends, competition, opportunities that impact the user, and capabilities of the platform.
  • Explore and establish business partnerships.
  • Evaluate opportunities for engagement and participation in open-source software projects in areas related to the SAS software portfolio.

What we’re looking for

  • You’re curious, passionate, authentic, and accountable. These are our values and influence everything we do.
  • 8+ years of experience either as a software developer or a technologist who has used agile methodologies to deliver software products or technology platforms to market.
  • You have a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science or a related quantitative field.
  • Understand concepts of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) and/or Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) business models. 

Other knowledge, skills, and abilities

  • Exceptional written and verbal communication skills, with the ability to engage in technical discussions with customers, partners, and industry analysts. 
  • Excellent critical thinking skills with demonstrated history of making good decisions in a fast-paced environment.
  • Proven ability to work in a highly collaborative environment across multiple business units.
  • Ability to innovate and define creative solutions with compelling user experiences that exceed customer expectations
  • A self-starter with bias toward action and the know-how to balance getting details right while still moving fast.
  • Experience building or using advanced analytics software; Kubernetes and containers; cloud and data architectures; analytic model management
  • Familiarity with one or more open-source packages and libraries (R, python, etc.) or technologies (Kubernetes, OpenSSL, etc.)


  • We love living the #SASlife and believe that happy, healthy people have a passion for life, and bring that energy to work. No matter what your specialty or where you are in the world, your unique contributions will make a difference.
  • Our multi-dimensional culture blends our different backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. Here, it isn’t about fitting into our culture, it’s about adding to it - and we can’t wait to see what you’ll bring.
