Job Responsibilities

The Team
The Product team at Welcome consists of a group of game changers. We believe in compassion over being right, teamwork over brilliance and above all of our other values: customer obsession over process. We move quickly, with high quality and with the customer experience in mind at all times. Our customers matter more than our own egos. We want to share in the success and happiness of our team. We do this by organizing into small, autonomous teams that are self-sufficient and fully empowered to deliver incremental value to our customers on an ongoing basis.

*You are a demonstrated leader with strong communication and collaboration skills
*You can share your product vision clearly, structure a plan to reach it, and inspire a cross-functional team to execute like a well-oiled machine. You have an exceptional ability to explain complex technology to executives one moment and discuss data architecture or design with your team the next
*You stay on top of the latest technology and market trends. You are constantly thinking about the success the product and the company and acting as a key contributor across all functions
*You are ruthless when it comes to prioritizing time and work
*You are adept at distinguishing what is important from what is noise (however loud) and prioritizing accordingly. You live and breathe the notion that a great product team delivers customer value as fast and continuously as possible
