Perform the day-to-day responsibilities of a Product Owner in the Agile software development lifecycle: grooming backlogs, prioritizing features, etc.
Monitor and analyze product performance metrics, using this data to improve existing products and identify new opportunities.
Ideal candidates will have these skills and qualifications:
5+ years experience in audience-related roles at publishers, 3+ years in product.
