  • Detail oriented: the little things are what make products amazing and you should always be thinking about them
  •  Global product management: prioritization and execution across markets, languages, and currencies
  • Technical skills: able to speak to engineers about technical approach, architect decisions, and high level technical strategy

Personal Characteristics:
