Veeam creates products to meet complex backup and data management challenges. We work with VMware vSphere, Microsoft Hyper-V, and Nutanix AHV virtualization, Windows, Linux, and Unix physical systems; Active Directory, Exchange, SharePoint, SQL, Oracle, and SAP HANA servers,
public clouds such as Amazon, Azure, Google Cloud, and many other technologies that form the core of modern IT.

Job Description

Overall, the job assumes that you will help to make the company’s products better and, thereby, the company’s customers happier.

3. Invent

4. Validate

  • Create a high-level documentation describing the concept and run it through peer-review (PM, development, quality assurance).

5. Make it all move

  • Make sure all parts of the team are pulling towards the same goal. Resolve arising questions, reassess design decisions, set priorities, make sure everybody understands use-cases and the cause.
  • Keep doing so until the product takes off and everything what the product consists of is in place (web pages, support, technical documentation etc).
  • Be in touch with other departments (engineers, salespeople, marketing guys) so that they fully understand what products they are working with. Review their documentation, answer their questions, attend internal and external events (trainings, conferences, meetups).
