  • You’re highly experienced in leading and influencing an organisation at all levels, are able to immediately understand different business models, have experience in taking ownership of topics like pricing and product-led expansion strategies/growth, and most importantly on the implementation of product initiatives to successful outcomes.
  • You have experience managing product-led growth and in turning product vision and strategy into well-articulated product requirements, using qualitative and quantitative data effectively to inform product direction and prioritization. You have a solid understanding of the product development lifecycle and product management processes; are an expert in agile methodology; and have deep experience interfacing with the technical teams. 
  • You have experience growing and evolving a product at scale in a high growth environment. You have proven experience leading product strategy and execution through a fast-paced, hyper-growth business environment delivering results that have significant impact on the business.
  • Extensive people management experience and communication skills: we are looking for someone with exceptional people leadership skills and proven success in coaching, mentoring and developing team members to reach their full potential. 
  • Experience in building and developing software dashboard products, especially with regard to product discovery, UX/UI design, and product-led expansion with a customer first approach is strongly preferred.
