- Has experience working across the diverse cultures and business environments in EMEA, especially in the UK, France, Germany and Nordics
- Exhibits excellent judgment, prioritizing between existing versus new customers
- Is a strong business owner, comfortable sharing vision with senior leadership, but also working closely with engineering teams to dive deep into details to make ideas into reality.
- Understands the technical and architectural challenges developers face when building a sophisticated, polished web or mobile application
- Has experience collaborating remotely from "outside HQ" to drive initiatives that solve regional needs
- Understands programming fundamentals and isn't afraid to write code – you'll be drafting mock REST and client-side APIs, and occasionally building simple demo applications to share your product's capabilities and your vision for its future
- Has communications industry experience including direct experience with technologies/standards such as SIP, VoIP, WebRTC, etc. and an understanding of the telecom environment throughout EMEA
- Is willing to travel frequently, as much as 75%, primarily throughout EMEA region

What?
In this role, you'll be the point of contact for Twilio's Voice & Video product management and strategy for our customers and sales teams throughout EMEA–meeting directly with customers and prospects, fielding day-to-day product management inquiries from the field, and engaging with our largest customers, other product managers, and cross-functional teams to design, deliver, and support solutions to customer needs. This means that you will own:
- Own the product roadmap for your region's needs, and work with Twilio's distributed product teams to define and deliver the product and commercial initiatives necessary to make customers in your region successful
- Discover opportunities and solutions by gathering feedback from customers, prospects, and sales/sales engineering teams
- Work with Twilio's globally distributed product team to evolve existing services and define new ones, prioritize their features, and craft their user experience–this means iterating with other product managers on feature specifications, API mocks and UI wireframes
- Represent the product roadmap and key business metrics as it relates to your region's unique needs to Twilio’s technology executives, customers, and to product teams across the company

Why?
Twilio's mission is to fuel the future of communications. We do that by focusing relentlessly on building the most robust, programmable, customer-centric communications platform on the planet. The Programmable Voice & Video platform daily reaches more than two million developers globally.

Where?
