In this position you will be leading end-to-end delivery of Search features on multiple client platforms.

A successful candidate will be familiar with applying experimentation, feature flighting and machine learning evaluation techniques to optimize the most relevant business metrics.

• Extract and document implementation details in collaboration with cross-functional teams and identify roadblocks before they occur.
• Define engineering implementation requirements based on UI/UX designs.
• Improve team velocity through smart planning and healthy retrospectives.

The Essentials
• 5+ years of experience in technical program management or a similar role/internship.
