  • Consolidate, analyze, and summarize data from various qualitative and quantitative resources for use in decision making.
  • Engage with customers/customer audiences as needed to support research and project hypotheses.
  • Communicate and distribute updates and information about product-related activities.
  • With supervisory management participation, complete ongoing, related continuing-education activities.
  • Other product management duties, as directed by team and company leadership.


  • Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology, Business, Communication, or related field
  • 2+ years of relevant professional experience
  • Agile or project management-related certifications are a plus.
  • Commitment to delivering results
  • Experience managing multiple tasks and priorities
