Jessica

Senior Product Manager

What does your typical day look like?

My day starts with our team's daily stand, and I'll usually have another agile ceremony (grooming, sprint planing, etc.). I also sync with the designer and PM to review upcoming features, user interviews, and wireframes. The rest of the day is spent working on new features, tackling tech-debt, and contributing to shared front-end infrastructure.

But the most important is the attitude that everyone's input matters.

We really value autonomy, so we want people who will also appreciate and take advantage of that. In my experience, these traits naturally come out over the course of the hiring process, and are
