  • Increase daily active users and overall engagement through creative optimization of key product flows
  • Test and implement strategies to increase product activation, user understanding, and average revenue per account
  • Collaborate with ZenHub’s leadership team and Board of Directors to define future strategy and tactical priorities

  • Experience setting and rolling out comprehensive product strategies, including First Time User Experience, User Engagement, Referral Programs, Content and Platform Viralization Initiatives, and Payment Flows
  • An exceptional track record of working with product, design, and engineering teams to prioritize and execute on plans
  • Past project experience (either mobile or web-based) where your initiatives have resulted in increased engagement and platform growth
  • Understanding of the values—and perils—of data-driven decision-making
