The role would suit someone with at least 2 years of product management experience growing high-quality traffic for inbound-focused companies.

* Autonomous: you will have support and direction, but you will also be able to know how to self-manage your own time, prioritizing the projects you have and knowing when to seek clarity on what is most important or urgent.
* Excellent written and verbal communication skills. We are a remote company so this goes without saying.
