· Work cross-functionally with engineering, design, and project management teams to deliver on the product roadmap.

· 2+ years experience as a product manager, creating developer-focused products, such as SDKs, tools, or platforms.

· Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English.

· Ability to work in a fast-paced and agile development environment.
· Past success in shaping software products with an eye on ease-of-use.
· Demonstrated ability to dive deep to understand the customer, product, and business.
· Bachelor's degree or higher in a technical field, such as computer science or engineering.
