About the Job:

We have established products that already have a product-market fit where you’ll help to grow the business and stay up to date with market demands. At the same time, you’ll be working to iterate quickly on testing new opportunities to help determine which are worth continued investment. We’re a data-driven team that defines success by business results rather than completion of a task. Finally, you’ll excel in this role as an independent thinker who can always find a way to move projects forward, even if you might be the only team member online at that time.
