You'll get to:
  • Build core products our merchants need to start, grow, and scale their business

  • Prioritize and plan features based on company and stakeholder priorities and business values
  • Take part in conversations when engineers are discussing the best way to implement something
  • Help the teams estimate more accurately
  • Create and iterate upon the product roadmap and technical product requirements

  • Experience facilitating technical discussions for products
  • Excellent communication skills and ability to work across multiple projects, align on goals, and output
  • Experience providing feedback and inputs in technical and architectural design
  • The ability to distill technical concepts to business users and vice versa
  • An entrepreneurial mindset - you must be comfortable rolling up your sleeves, thriving in ambiguity, and getting the work done

It'd be great if you also had:
  • Previous experience as a software developer or hands-on knowledge of how to code
