With a strong presence in NZ (80 Roamers and growing), we’ve expanded into Sydney to service our Australian clients on the ground. Projects have been lining up at the door and we’re looking for another experienced Product Manager to get these exciting projects off the ground.  Some would think of this as an X-Men mutant-like combination of project management, product management and some code or designer DNA all zapped with lightning.
