A successful candidate is…
A Product Specialist. You know how to translate a UX experience into users stories and manage a product backlog. You work cross-functionally with your design and engineering partners, providing clear direction on the “what” and “why” but giving them a strong voice to define the “how”. You don’t have to be an experience software developer but you understand how software is built and understand micro service architectures.
Execution-oriented. You also know the art of the MVP: to launch that dream experience you have break the work down into phases, drive product development, ship experiences, study how customers use them, and iterate. You know how to roll with the punches, find the path forward as the landscape changes, and clearly communicate and bring all impacted partners along with you.
Data Driven. You love numbers and charts and understand the story they are telling you. You understand how to ask your data questions and are able to dive deeper into the details to uncover what is really happening. You understand how to instrument your product to get missing data points and understand the subtleties of data collection. You are able to define KPIs upfront and continually optimizing the products against those KPIs.
A relationship builder. You know that relationships drive your ability to succeed. You understand the value of listening first, then talking; of giving consistently and receiving occasionally. You’ve seen how strong cross-team collaboration and partnership yields that best outcomes.
