You’ll directly manage a product design team as they meaningfully explore and iterate on core product capabilities, as well as design and implement new products. As player/coach, you are an expert at enabling your team to produce their best work, while still getting hands on and tactical as needed.
This is a role for a true craftsperson who is excited by the opportunity to enable fluid and connected experiences for Outreach users.

  • Using both quantitative data and qualitative research to better understand user workflows and prototype solutions.
  • Working with the User Research function, manage customer interviews, validate design concepts and conduct usability studies
