  • Partner with Product and Customer Success team members to influence the evolution of the strategies, tools, and data sets necessary for teams to scalably identify rich customer insights and translate insights into actionable solutions with quantifiable business impact.
  • Define a framework which provides a data-driven justification of the level of investment in addressing customer feedback across product areas.
  • Define the reporting and presentation cadence to deliver findings to cross-functional stakeholders and leadership teams on a regular basis. 
  • Ensure all product teams are consistently monitoring VoC inputs and trends to identify systemic issues before they meaningfully impact cNPS.
  • Measure and report on Product team responsiveness to VoC input.

Engineering Manager

"I looked at a lot of start-ups during my last job search and Toast was by far the most exciting. It was instantly obvious to me how the product is useful to people and why someone might want to buy it. The proof of that has been in the way we have grown and the excitement we have already generated. However, what really excites me about the company is that I feel like we are just scratching the surface in terms of what we can accomplish. There are SO many untapped opportunities around our product and as we continue to grow, I am excited about being able to explore them more.​"
