LogMeIn (Nasdaq: LOGM) is in hiring mode in the managed services software and cloud market. Among the key opportunities on the radar: A senior product manager position focused on the company's Access & Management portfolio -- including LogMeIn Free/Pro, Central, Hamachi, Ignition and Mobile. So what does this career opportunity have to do with the MSP market? Here's the answer.
According to chatter from LogMeIn, the pending new hire:
"is an important job and would be responsible for setting the direction of some of the core products at LogMeIn. There is a ton of responsibility and it is a great opportunity to take one career to the next level working at fundamentally SaaS company. We are looking for someone with not only knowledge of the RMM space, but also for someone who has some channel business savvy to manage this portfolio of products."Even LogMeIn CEO Michael Simon is focused on the MSP market. During an earnings call with Wall Street analysts earlier this year, Simon said:
“In 2012 alone, we added more than 2,000 new MSP and outsourced IT customers. This growing relationship with the MSP community provides a more cost-effective means of meeting SMB demand for IT offerings, while setting up potential avenues for future distribution of both our IT and business-centric services.”Simon also mentioned that 36 percent of MSPmentor 501 companies leverage LogMeIn’s software, according to MSPmentor’s own survey data. Eager to build on that momentum, LogMeIn in late 2012 hired channel veteran Ted Roller, an MSP expert and proponent. Plus, David Blair, VP of products, has been keenly focused on the MSP space.
