Staff Product Manager, Platform Security

Remote (United States)

Harness is a high-growth startup that is disrupting the software delivery market. Our mission is to enable the 30 million software developers in the world to deliver code to their users reliably, efficiently, securely and quickly, increasing customers’ pace of innovation while improving the developer experience. We offer solutions for every step of the software delivery lifecycle to build, test, secure, deploy and manage reliability, feature flags and cloud costs. The Harness Software Delivery Platform includes modules for CI, CD, Cloud Cost Management, Feature Flags, Service Reliability Management, Security Testing Orchestration, Chaos Engineering, Software Engineering Insights, and continues to expand at an incredibly fast pace. 

Harness is led by technologist and entrepreneur Jyoti Bansal, who founded AppDynamics and sold it to Cisco for $3.7B. We’re backed with $425M in venture financing from top-tier VC and strategic firms, including J.P. Morgan, Capital One Ventures, Citi Ventures, ServiceNow, Splunk Ventures, Norwest Venture Partners, Adage Capital Partners, Balyasny Asset Management, Gaingels, Harmonic Growth Partners, Menlo Ventures, IVP, Unusual Ventures, GV (formerly Google Ventures), Alkeon Capital, Battery Ventures, Sorenson Capital, Thomvest Ventures and Silicon Valley Bank.


Harness Software Delivery Platform is built on a container-native microservices architecture where microservices for multiple product modules and multiple shared platform services are integrated into a single application. This application is deployed onto Kubernetes clusters, both in Harness SaaS (which runs on public cloud) and customer’s self-managed environments (which run on both public and private clouds). Day-1 install/configuration and day-2 monitoring/management in customer environments involve adherence to DevSecOps principles (such as shift-left vulnerability scanning and SBOM management) as well as site reliability engineering principles (such as composable helm charts installed onto hardened clusters, horizontal scaling, high availability configurations, alerting/troubleshooting, periodic upgrades, disaster recovery setup and more).

In this role, you will own the application software and runtime security/hardening features of the self-managed platform (SMP). You will work with enterprise customers, especially in regulated industries, to understand product requirements so that the platform can be leveraged at scale in production while remaining in compliance with strictest security standards.
