  • You are obsessed with ensuring users get the most value from Later, and use data to back your decisions on where to prioritize your efforts
  • You have a strong ability to collaborate with stakeholders across a variety of other teams
  • You are a creative thinker who is comfortable working both independently and in a team environment. You embrace feedback and have a constant desire to learn and improve.
