  • Have a super-human ability to prioritize the work of your team and develop a Product Backlog that is justifiable to the business.
  • Be an incredibly clear and consistent communicator of what’s happening with your projects.
  • Be hungry for measurable project goals & report back how your products are performing for your stakeholders.

  • Experience working with Agile Development Methodologies
  • Strong understanding of the digital/web space (web design, UX/UI, Strategy, etc.)
