Our customers

We serve the world's most innovative companies. They are building revolutionary new experiences for their customers and move fast. They expect us to do the same and to help them develop best practices for product development. Our software is methodology agnostic, which means we need to be experts in the agile, scrum, kanban, Scaled Agile Framework, and hybrid approaches that our customers depend on.

Our collective experience gives us the skills to meet customers where they are, internalize how they work (because we have been there, done that), and confidently guide them to achieve their best. And because we are always curious, we love learning from customers throughout our journeys together.

Your Experience

You work hard and have a history of making a positive impact. Fast-paced and high-growth technology companies are where you thrive. You are happiest when you can work directly with customers alongside a team of fellow high achievers. You have recently worked in product management or a similar role that was directly responsible for building software. Working with customers (rather than defining requirements and guiding development work) is your preference, and showcasing advanced technology to sophisticated customers energizes you. You also have:

  • Two+ years' experience defining, managing, or launching new functionality at a growing software or technology company
  • Used a detailed go-to-market process to achieve product and business goals
  • Learned business software applications and workflow methodologies
  • Written clear instructions to answer questions and explain best practices
  • Independently resolved hard challenges
