👌What We Need
Our incubator creates entirely new products from scratch and turns promising concepts into prototypes, and ultimately an MVP, validating decisions commercially along the way to attract a founding team that can spin out into a fully-fledged business. As our Product Strategist, you'll be working directly with our corporate investors to identify new business opportunities. You’ll tease out problems, conceptualise solutions in the form of experience flows, and validate them with consumers. This involves rapid experimentation, so we seek individuals who walk the line between product and business. 
You have a curious and creative mind, eager to understand what makes people tick, but have the ability to look at things from a business point of view. You should love building products that users rave about and working across different projects with lots of competing priorities at rapid pace. You should thrive in a startup environment and subscribe to lean methodologies and principles of product development.
