About the Position

As a Product Manager, you will participate in developing the strategy and vision for the Engineering Success team, and you will develop and look after product roadmaps and features based on team strategy and vision.

You love working with people and can collaborate across many internal teams to move mountains and drive alignment on big objectives. You know how to turn customer problems into product opportunities and can craft and execute on an impactful product roadmap. You know what success looks like for your products and can clearly articulate the metrics you use to judge the health of your products. You have a passion for and history of ideating, building, delivering, and supporting high quality, delightful user experiences that reach a broad and diverse base of customers.
