DESCRIPTION OF ROLE

You’re the type to play out scenarios while commuting to work. What happens if we ship x before y? If this growth build leads to a z% increase on average order value, can we shelf our next automation build? While you bring a highly analytical approach, you also know when not to overthink and just act. Your colleagues rely on you to spell out implications, communicate the value of certain initiatives and build consensus across teams. The growth team depends on you to ship features that acquire new members, while member experience counts on your ability to push through experiences that delight our member base.
