  • Interview internal stakeholders and develop feature and product ideas that solve business problems for Home Depot merchants and their support teams
  • Develop and communicate a product roadmap that fits into the overall vision of BlackLocus
  • Define measurable business goals to drive product development priorities and product deliverables
  • Write clear and concise requirements and user stories, prioritize development items and coordinate schedules with data science and engineering teams
  • Consistently meet or beat assigned targets and deadlines
  • Know how to assess and take risks in a fast paced dynamic environment

  • Proven track record of successfully working with product teams (engineering, UX, Data Science); strong interpersonal skills
  • Excellent communication (written and verbal) and presentation skills; meeting facilitation and strong follow-up required
