What will I be doing?

What skills do I need?

  • Able to think deeply about product decisions, and how we can simplify the experience of complex industry and regulated workflows
  • Be a clear communicator of product decisions and the rationale behind them; be comfortable in making decisions without consensus
  • You have guided conversations to seek understanding of the problems being facing to inform potential options for product next steps
  • You’re entrepreneurial; you don’t need direction; you’re self-driven and always looking for ways to improve product practices
  • Have an understanding of the technical architecture of complex web and cloud applications
  • Ability to travel across Australia to spend time with customers, as well as to New Zealand to engage directly with engineering teams

What’s in it for me?
