You will help develop solution vision and strategy with your team, develop a deep understanding of the target market (e.g., colleagues, clients, potential clients, job candidates) in partnership with businesses and other key stakeholders, and define the value proposition, objectives and key results (with a sharp focus on outcomes and impact) along the solution road-map to guide investment decisions. You will be empowered and capable of managing the product budget and making trade-offs between value, feasibility and usability.
Additionally, you will devise ways to experiment innovative ideas in a rapid and reliable fashion.
