    • Collaborate closely with those most crucial to your success: Design, Engineering, Marketing, and Customer Success
    • Develop a deep understanding of our users’ workflows and needs
    • Write user stories for the development team for feature releases
    • Drive release-management - make decisions about what tradeoffs to make to ensure we regularly ship incremental value
    • Communicate often - keep teams aligned on the purpose of our work

Who we’re looking for:

    • 3+ years of product management experience, within a high-paced agile environment
    • Proven track record of product-driven growth activities (acquisition and retention)

    • Demonstrated Ux skill set (e.g. wireframing) 
    • Strong understanding of BenchSci’s business, product, and customers
    • Demonstrated ability to prioritize solutions to drive the greatest possible impact
    • Strong communicator and leader
    • (Preferred) Background in analytics and/or marketing
    • (Preferred) Experience on a B2B product

What you get:

    • Competitive salary with company benefits from day one

    • An opportunity to help transform and improve scientific research with a fun, energetic, and supportive team
    • Quarterly team events, annual retreats, and regular lunch and learns
