Senior Product Manager – Mobile (m/f/d)
Pitch’s global launch this past October was the culmination of a three-year mission to make intuitive, slick presentation tools available to anybody with an internet connection and a bit of RAM. 2021 will mark the year we expand on this mission by bringing the Pitch user experience to mobile. Our small team of engineers and designers has already been crafting the Pitch mobile apps for the past year and are at the cusp of the first release. This imminent launch, however, is only the beginning. To ensure we continue to efficiently build, vet, and ship features which delight our mobile users for years to come, our mobile team is in need of some expertise and skills only a Senior Product Manager could bring.
