  • Team player with excellent problem-solving and consensus-building skills. Fosters a culture of creativity, collaboration, innovation, honesty, and best ideas forward

  • Experienced in scoping, wireframing, designing, and developing product prototypes using tools such as Miro, Mural, and Figma to test hypotheses and enable lean product development approaches
  • Working knowledge of Agile process and principles
  • Working knowledge of product management and strategy frameworks and techniques
  • Product management training or certifications are a plus (e.g. SAFe POPM, Pragmatic)
  • Have worked on teams that employ a design system and conduct user research that informs product vision and strategy
