You are a senior product leader who loves to roll up their sleeves, tackling challenges big and small. A big thinker who is also a team player and can jump in and help out wherever and whenever needed. You believe in asking questions and listening intently, while also being decisive and vocal. Technology excites you, especially when thinking about the ways it can solve the most difficult problems, such as social challenges, and want your work to make a positive impact on hearts and minds. You are excited to grow a product, and to grow your career along side with it!
