The Role

Work on our recruiting solution to deliver a world-class experience through embedded engagement and automation to streamline every step of the talent acquisition process. You are in charge of functionality in your product area; your scrum team will have your back while you all enjoy success and face challenges as a team. It’s your job to gather requirements and nurture customer relationships to get feedback on product direction and design.  You’ll closely partner with a group of customers as design advisors for every feature to assure what the team produces delights. 


You set product priorities, know best business practices in the product domain, and boil everything you hear from customers and the market down to a well-defined problem to solve for the scrum team. 


Be the master of mapping customer business needs to product designs you articulate through epics and stories; then, when the team completes a feature, you get to tell the whole world about it through internal knowledge transfers and presentations to customers.


Managing the maintenance backlog is a priority, and making sure Support has what it needs to respond to tickets from customers who are using what the team has created.

Developing modern cloud software is about working with people, so you will be constantly connecting with others across the organization (UX, development, QA, platform, marketing, sales, strategy, documentation, services, support, other application product teams) to realize your product vision!
