The Scoop

As the Product Manager at Katalyst, you'll have the opportunity to lead the product management of the ground-breaking Katalyst Training System. You will have the opportunity to define the ‘what’ we really build and dig deep to figure out ‘why’ we should be building it. The right candidate will want to develop a deep understanding of the product functioning, create channels for getting customer feedback, and identify ways to continuously improve the product. This is a big impact role that will both work cross functionally and with the leadership team to help build an impactful product.
