Every product team needs to be fast-paced & data-driven to be successful. And it takes an exceptional Jr. Product Specialist to make it happen.
As a Jr. Product Specialist at Codeway, you’ll work directly with our Head of Product and Executive Team. While you take part in every aspect of your products, you’ll make data-driven decisions guided by business-related insights.
It will be an important part of your job to understand different needs of different teams and allocate engineering efforts accordingly. You’ll help them to get meaningful insights from data and you’ll systematically re-prioritize the Product Backlog by taking business priorities into consideration.
As you master both your technical and soft skills, you’ll simultaneously prepare yourself to be an excellent Product Manager for Codeway’s next generation of apps.
At the end of the day, who could be a better candidate for being a perfect Product Manager, than a Jr. Product Specialist who has been in the front lines of building a matchless product culture, understands marketing, and is able to speak the same language with engineers?
Yes, we both know the answer!
