Prior people management experience is preferred!

We’re especially looking for someone who wants to learn, grown, and embody new ways of working. If you embrace growth mindset, have a track record of delivering results, and you light up collaborating with other researchers, designers, product managers and engineers this is an awesome team to join. This position is based in Dublin, Ireland.
