You love creating powerful, beautiful and intuitive digital products. You are passionate about technology and using it to solve complex problems. You understand how to leverage people, process and tools to build and launch products because you’ve done it before.
You have a strong Agile product management background, proven experience navigating the software development lifecycle, and know how to leverage a multitude of Agile techniques such as Scrum, Kanban and XP.
You understand lean requirements gathering techniques, and know how to ask effective, direct and insightful questions. You have a unique ability to quickly absorb complex, ambiguous concepts and rapidly organize them into structured requirements.
You are an expert at crafting a product backlog that is clear, concise and technically sound. You understand what considerations to take into account when prioritizing your team’s work, and know how to leverage metrics to forecast release dates and spend.
Your communication style is direct and succinct. You don’t use 10 words to explain yourself when 2 will do. You concisely articulate technical concepts to non-technical audiences, and enjoy giving client presentations on technical projects.
You will tackle all of this, and still be hungry for more. If this sounds like you, then you belong here.
