Mitigate risk regarding product and tech. Work closely with engineering and product in order to turn breakthrough technologies into products that solve our customers’ needs

Influence company’s technical and business roadmap by balancing business needs with technical and schedule constraints

Develop and manage program strategy and early-stage roadmap, ensuring we are taking on the hardest engineering problems first

Position Requirements:


5-8 years experience leading multiple large-scale projects simultaneously in a fast-paced environment

Strong data analytical skills and proven experience developing and using tools to analyze large data sets to drive decisions

Demonstrated ability to self-motivate and follow-through on projects
