  • Prepare technical documentation and diagrams
  • Cultivate expertise in relevant aspects of target business domains and apply that knowledge to maximize technology value
  • Assist project and product leaders in making risk-managed planning and release decisions

  • Knowledge of Bitcoin, cryptocurrencies, and/or blockchain technologies is a plus
  • Strong verbal and written communication skills with ability to collaborate with both technical and business staff
