You may also have the opportunity to create and define new brands and/or features.
In this role, you will enjoy collaborating with global product marketing, product management, UX and brand design teams across multiple organizations.

· Communicating with senior leaders is comfortable and natural for you, whether in written or verbal form.
· You are a self-starter, and can juggle multiple priorities and make things happen in a fast-paced, dynamic, and often ambiguous environment.
· You thrive on receipt of constructive feedback, using it as motivation to rethink your approach.
· You think in an imaginative, abstract world, where you possess the confidence to defend your creative ideas, as well as poke holes in them.
· You can easily shift from thinking big to rolling up your sleeves to execute smaller tasks.
· You are obsessed with creating world-class brands, packaging and messaging.
