  • Experienced Product Manager: You have at least 2 years of professional product management experience, preferably at a fast-paced startup or on a very small team. You’re comfortable prioritizing business needs over all other kinds of feedback and requests.
  • Optimization Focused: You must have some prior experience working specifically on funnel optimization, ideally for a consumer-facing software product.

    • Excellent Communicator: You are concise, thorough, and have impeccable grammar. You care about language, and enjoy writing for its own sake. You should probably also be able to convey a sense of humor. We will not consider applications that contain typos.
    • Appreciative of Quality: You get very enthusiastic about certain products, and can articulate why they’re incredible. You are excited to build a consumer brand.
    • An Audio Enthusiast: You have strong opinions — well informed but loosely held — on podcasting and/or creativity.
