What You'll Be Doing in the role of Product Strategist

At Susan G Komen, we leverage a variety of business solutions, across our organization, to acquire, engage and retain fundraisers to support our mission. As Product Strategist – Experiential Programs, you'll play an integral role in ensuring that we're using the right business solutions to their full potential to meet ongoing business needs and support our corporate mission. This position will work in lockstep with business leaders to create a clear strategic direction that will be delivered by the product development team (internal and external resources).

Building our products and platforms is a highly collaborative process.  Relationships are paramount and strong communication skills are key.
