Product Managers on the Sportsbook team take responsibility for discovery, planning, strategy, execution, and analysis of a significant segment of our portfolio, focusing on creating betting products our fans will love. They should be consumer-obsessed, understanding how to use qualitative and quantitative research as well as product discovery and design thinking techniques to make our product experiences more fun and more exciting, anticipating the next key feature or game that our fans want even before they know they want it.
