Collaborating with UX and product management, you will help write user stories, build product roadmaps, and ensure smooth cooperation with teams from discovery to delivery. You’ll also work cross-functionally with teams like marketing, sales, HR, customer success, and more. You will evangelize and continuously improve our agile methodologies for software development to iterate on our products in a lean way, and you will be a trusted leader to help evolve the next generation of our multi-tenant cloud-based platforms and solutions.
