We’re looking for a passionate Product Manager who knows how to define, validate and communicate a product vision.  You have seen the power of empowered, balanced teams and believe in Outcomes over Output [video].  You have strong product instincts, but more importantly have an appreciation for and understanding of lean startup, agile and user-centered design values, principles and practices.  You make the time to hone your own craft and contribute to the large product management community.  You believe in doing the right thing and doing what works.  You understand that your obligation to the team is to make fast, concrete decisions despite conflicting priorities.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?
