  • Produce deliverables (designs, epics, etc.) based off of business stakeholder requirements, that provide engineering with a clear blueprint to develop products efficiently
  • Regularly communicate (and be accountable for) performance metrics to key stakeholders throughout the organization
  • Proactively identify and resolve issues that may impair the team’s ability to meet strategic, financial, and technical goals
  • Partner closely with your engineering team(s) to manage in-flight projects to successful outcomes

 

 

An ideal candidate will have the following:

  • A Bachelor's degree or equivalent in business, engineering, computer science, or equivalent

  • Experience defining and visualizing new product features according to customer needs and iterating quickly based on test & learn experimentation
  • Experience having ownership of complex products with large user bases is preferred
  • Experience using metrics to surface investment areas for feature development, prioritization, and experience communicating this data and paths forward to senior leaders
  • Strong communication and relationship-building skills, along with the ability to influence decision-making
  • Excellent analytical skills with demonstrated experience gathering, analyzing and turning data into actionable insights
  • Ability to think strategically and tactically within a dynamic, fast-paced organization
  • Proficiency with SQL or other relational database query languages to build your own data analysis and models is strongly preferred - if not proficient in SQL, must be willing to learn it
