9. Inform decisions with qualitative and quantitative data
10. Ensure good communication and transparency by partnering with internal teams including editorial, marketing, advertising, business development, etc
11. Coordinate with product peers and their teams to share learnings and ensure quality cross-platform experience

As the ideal candidate, you’re a driven, passionate advocate for your customers and your business, with a sense of urgency to make things better wherever you are. You’re always handy with a strong point of view, but you’re open-minded and can admit when you’re wrong. Your teams love working with you because you’re a pleasure to be around and lead through inspiration and motivation rather than rules and hierarchies. A good story has made your way more than a good data point, but you’ve always got both at hand.

If this sounds like you, and you’re excited to work with great people and the global leader in real life entertainment, we’d love to meet up!
