  • Monitoring key benchmarks, analytics, and experiment results every day to ensure the health of your product

What does our ideal candidate look like?
  • Commercial experience as a Product Manager
  • Proven history of making data-driven decisions to prioritize and ship products
  • Experience leading a cross-functional/agile team
