You’ll be responsible for guiding our API Platform Squad and leading our API vision towards a best in class API Product & Platform Strategy. 

In order to anticipate the digital transformation of modern restaurateurs as well as technical and business challenges and market needs and opportunities, you'll work to define a product positioning in line with the business and development strategy. To achieve this you’ll work hand in hand with product managers, architects, developers.

You understand the needs and expectations of our API Users, internal or external, and you’ll bring our entire team and product unit together around a Product vision — you will give meaning and share what we see for the product in the short, medium, and long term terms.

You will have a direct impact on our products and the company. You will help developers leverage our interfaces to create great products and features that will enhance our value proposition for our customers and power our market leadership.

Responsibilities

  • Thrust and augment our API Product Strategy by improving processes, tools, documentation and best practices

You’re able to adapt your explanations to your audience, manage stakeholder expectations effectively and proactively. You know how to efficiently share your ideas in writing or speaking. You love collaborating across departments and regions. You excel at summarizing complex information and focus on what matters most. 

We hire curious, daring, humble people and give them a lot of latitude to learn and create. We’re much more interested in what you’ve been doing since you graduated than in your degree.
