Product Manager, Identity

USA - TX - Austin Domain 2

To achieve these goals, we’re looking for a product manager who can drive a strategy and execute a test-and-learn roadmap to decide at which key points in the customer journey should they be required to log-in, how to demonstrate federated identity, what forms of authentication and verification should we require, and how do we optimize these flows to reduce friction.
