You’ll be empowered as the central point of product leadership, understanding internal stakeholders and customer needs well enough to act as their voice, communicating to the development team what must be built.

Liaising with external facing product managers and internal clients you’ll be defining and driving the product components, looking at Web service API’s and deciding which services will be built.
