  • Problem solving doers: They are analytical, in the detail, hands on with a bias for action…every day.

Role: Venture Build, Consumer Acquisition & Product Management

  • Responsible for creating a product/offering that forms the foundation of a Sleep Community;
  • Owning the consumer: uncovering frictions then designing and building MVPs to solve the frictions;
  • Managing acquisition tests: a/b & multivariant tests using content, SEO, social, search, emails, etc.;
  • Managing engagement tests: differing strategies across product & content to maximise interaction;
