  • Write user centered requirements and work with client stakeholders to prioritize them, coming up with creative ways to introduce value early and to test ideas with end users (data, user testing).
  • Conduct user testing; write user test scripts and help recruit participants with outside research firms.
  • Motivate cross-functional teams of engineers, designers and business analysts to achieve best-in-class solutions for clients. Ensure a fantastic working environment for the team.

Qualifications: 

  • Trained in business; MBA a plus but not required (especially if you have other super powers, see below).
  • Has been a product manager for at least 2-3 years.
  • Can work in agile, waterfall, or mixed development environments, always pushing for faster delivery and jumping in when necessary to help.
  • Understands customer funnels, A/B testing, and how to draw insights from business data.
  • Understanding of lean methodologies, continuous delivery, and scrum is useful.
  • Has a positive attitude and humility — both extremely important to our team and for the work we do.
