You
A product team member that likes being part of an extended team working closely to solve problems with internal and external customers.  You will interact daily with other product team members, software engineers and engineering leads to ensure the team is staying on track during the Sprint.  You can play the role of outstanding communicator, organizer, leader and maybe even a trailblazer looking for the next big thing.  Leading and collaborating with team members is energizing to you, and you’re a goal-setter that seeks to understand problems by gaining multiple inputs from different inputs. You keep it casual and love a good whiteboard. Work is best when you can make meaningful contributions to a rapidly-growing company.  You are looking to grow but love to see others to grow and contribute is just as important.
