  • Collaborate with your peers to stretch each other, help each other think differently and spread findings as to what’s resonating best with our customers 
  • Drive insight and spot opportunities that allows the full team to drive rapid experimentation

The skills you’ll bring

  • You have set up and / or managed a community 
  • You’re willing to work evenings and weekends, either as a part of your working mix, or a regular slot
