Full Time Minnesota Product Job
At Livefront, we help companies design and build world-class digital products that command attention and inspire joy. We've helped household names like Target, Samsung, General Mills, and Optum create experiences that have reached millions of people, and startups like HomeSpotter and Acclaim build entirely new businesses that challenge their industries' status quo.
We're looking for an outstanding Product Manager to join our team in Minneapolis.

You have a track record of leading high-profile product initiatives to great outcomes for users and businesses alike. You obsessively stay on top of emerging trends and content from industry thought leaders. You're a terrific communicator who can help steer cross-functional teams from idea to implementation. You have a demonstrated ability to approach multifaceted problems holistically and create elegant, simple solutions. Above all, you're a self-starter who thrives in autonomy and can work effectively with little oversight.
