  • Listen to all relevant stakeholders and translate needs from them into work items to be done by the team.

  • Coordinate with user support to find opportunities to enhance our products and grow user satisfaction

  • Ensure that decisions made regarding our products are transparent to everyone in the company
  • “Rally the troops” by obtaining all necessary stakeholder buy-in to move a project forward to implementation
  • Define the data metrics or feedback required to validate the team’s goals, and ensure those metrics are available to everyone in the company
  • Attend all team meetings and be responsible for owning the team’s planning, refinement and review meetings.
