  • 5+ years of product management experience on a SaaS product, with a proven history of shipping and managing products with cross-functional teams
  • Strong design understanding: you may not be a designer but you should be able to think deeply about product design decisions and have an understanding of how to create simple but elegant user interfaces
  • Technical fluency: you may not be a developer but you have an understanding of the technical architecture of complex web and mobile applications and can work with engineers to make intelligent technical trade-offs
  • Excellent writing and communication skills: you understand how to adjust your messaging based on the audience and know how to communicate clearly and concisely
  • Entrepreneurial spirit: you’re a self-starter, can identify opportunities, understand potential impact and effectively prioritize across multiple competing priorities
  • Detail-oriented: you’re meticulous with everything from detailing robust feature specs to chasing down the nitty-gritty dependencies across complex projects
