    • Setting goals (on both a product level and feature level), measuring and iterating on the outcomes
    • Deep understanding of the customer through a range of inputs - such as customer interviews and analytics
    • Driving strategic product decisions via evaluation of market trends, user feedback, and analysis of product performance
    • Defining the vision for app

What we're looking for

    • Previous experience in a Product Manager,  Product Owner or Product Marketing Manager position is required
    • Collaborative approach to leading and inspiring a team
    • Driven to set and accomplish complex goals
    • Experience in taking an idea, making a plan, and executing
    • Excellent interpersonal skills, both written and verbal, enabling you to work across a range of functions, teams, and seniority
