Description

Modern Tribe is looking for a seasoned digital strategist with strong Product Management experience to join our growing team.

The Strategist works with our customers to help focus business objectives, and translate them into executable plans for our design and development teams. That requires a broad understanding of technology, how it can be used to accomplish objectives, and how that technology will intersect with individuals inside and outside of an organization. The strategist and the PM are our primary intersections with our clients – you are the face of our projects.

The strategist answers the question “What?” and helps the design and development teams answer the question “How?” They work with the Project Manager to answer the questions “When?” and “How Much?” You will be leading projects between 50k – 1M+ for world renown brands and our live well and do good work culture.

In projects where we are leading product development, the strategist is as much a business consultant as anything else. We provide expertise and guidance on workflows and structure, and how technology is used. We guide innovation, ensuring that product market fit is correct, and ensuring that new products exist at the intersection of business objectives and user goals.

We shepard products from just a glimmer to successful releases. This requires an understanding of the product development cycle, how to release and when to release, how to target an MVP and guide a product roadmap successfully.

Note that scoping + strategy experience are a must-have for this role; Modern Tribe is not interested non-technical candidates at this time.
