  • Own your product and initiatives from start to finish by making decisions based on data to push projects to completion

  • Excellent communication skills to effectively articulate the business value of our products and describe technical requirements to developers
  • Outstanding project management skills
  • Curiosity and a creative mindset

  • Open to traveling to meet with our customers in-person and understanding how they use our products
  •
