A Product Manager is an analytical thinker who is deeply emphatic and leads with a user-centered approach and is a creative problem solver by nature. We are looking for someone who is driven to create and manage best-in-class interactive experiences, lead teams, oversee product development and maintain technology and production standards.

 

Strong leadership skills help them oversee team activities, as they are accountable for the quality of their work, ensuring goals are met and projects are delivered in line with timing and budget expectations.
