    • Work closely with UX Researchers, Product Designers and Engineering managers to analyse and prioritise stories, epics and tasks to deliver the customer solution,  product strategy and value for the business.
    • Lead the development of solution release plans and set expectations for delivery of new functionality.
    • Represent the Product function in the weekly rhythm of engineering delivery.

Why You're Made for This

    • Ability to think about the bigger vision and executing on minor detailing
