Job Details

Product Strategist
As Product Strategist you will lead a sharp and aggressive cross-functional team in developing web and/or mobile applications for SDW clients. You must possess a unique blend of business and technical savvy, a big-picture vision, and the drive to make that vision a reality.
A Product Strategist’s key role is… strategic. You will break down complex business problems into executable pieces and align technical and non-technical stakeholders around common objectives.
At Skookum Digital Works, software product strategists are faced with hundreds of decisions on what could be done. What will allow us to succeed is not building something that does a mediocre job for everyone—but instead—we must focus our products on doing a few things extremely well.Responsibilities:

Work closely with SDW clients to both learn and convey strategic business objectives and translate those objectives into an executable backlog of user stories.
Evaluate what end-users’ value through interviews and/or on-site observation to identify new features, fix and/or enhancement opportunities.
Work hands on with design and development teams to prioritize, plan, and deliver software that meets business requirements and delights end-users.
Lead multiple projects from start to finish, managing internal and external stakeholders across functions as well as timeline and budget.
Help educate clients on our iterative and lean approach to software development.


3+ years of product management, business analysis, or relevant software experience
Prior coding experience strongly preferred
Strong business acumen
Excellent communication skills – verbal and written – with the capability to communicate with technical, non-technical, and senior level stakeholders
Strong consensus and relationship building skills
Expert in AGILE/SCRUM methodologies
Experience writing functional requirements/user stories
Understanding and experience in user interface best practices
Ability to quickly grasp concepts and solve complex problems
Good planning and organizational skills with the ability to prioritize and negotiate
Quick in learning and adapting to new projects with minimal supervision
Job Perks: Great pay, cool co-workers, interesting projects: sound good? SDW is the premier destination for designers, developers, and product managers outside of NY & SF. What we offer: health/dental/vision, 3 weeks paid vacation, catered Friday lunches, company happy hours and outings, panoramic views of the city from our sweet penthouse digs.Apply: A resume helps, but keep it informal. Right now, we just want to know you (or know about you). If you’re hungry and dig our vibe, we’ll make a spot.
