About the Opportunity

As the Head of Product, you’ll lead the team to build Veza Authorization Platform and lay the foundation for an iconic company. Today, we have three products: Search and Insights, Access Review Workflows, and Activity Monitoring. Search and Insights allow users to visualize the reality of access permissions to enterprise resources, find risk-prioritized misconfigurations with both pre-built and custom queries, and send alerts to your preferred enterprise collaboration systems. Access Review Workflows allow users to set up certification campaigns, managers or resource owners to review and validate permissions, and auditors to get full visibility and tracking of the access review process and certification results. Activity Monitoring provides an additional powerful layer of event data, adding insight into who performed what specific action, with better intelligence around dormant permissions and overall user risk. The platform connects to a wide range of cloud IAM, on-prem systems, identity providers, cloud platforms, structured data, unstructured data, and apps (both 3rd party and custom), to understand and manage data permissions. The platform also has the Open Authorization API, allowing customers to connect essentially any SaaS app or system to Veza.
