  • Experience leading multiple teams and managing PMs, and a track record of building trust quickly throughout an organization and getting stuff done

  • A natural, deep curiosity that drives you to learn, investigate, and constantly ask why 

  • Expert communication skills that enable you to persuade and inspire, break down complex concepts, and keep teams aligned
