You’ll work to keep the team unblocked and de-risked using hypothesis-driven development and are flexible and adaptable to a fast-changing environment.

You are known as a practice champion and other Product Managers will rely on you for coaching and mentoring in the organization. You are an expert in your product domain and have a deep understanding of the tech stack and how it affects your product decisions. You will often find yourself owning strategic decisions and have the ability to generate deep insights from data and experiments. You will be a focal point for understanding customer needs from multiple perspectives and are able to collaborate closely with with senior stakeholders to maintain alignment on product roadmaps
