Description

Accrete, a rapidly growing AI company, is looking for Product Analysts to join its team as individual contributors. As a product-led organization, Product Analysts will sit at the nucleus of the company, working cross-functionally with world-class AI researchers, engineers, designers, and business units to build products that foundationally transform how industries work and operate. The Product Analyst will have the opportunity and exposure to grow into a Product Manager role in due course. In this role, Analysts will work cross-functionally across Accrete and receive mentorship from Accrete’s product managers in order to develop the foundation of their product, management, and technical skills. Given that Accrete is a product-led organization, this role will be an inherently cross-functional, collaborative position that requires engaging with all segments of Accrete’s business. Specifically, this role involves four primary responsibilities: (1) researching and producing high-quality reports on competitive intelligence, customer requests, new technologies, and novel ideas in the AI space; (2) working with the product, engineering, business development, marketing, and design teams to identify and document the vision for new features, capabilities, and products to develop; (3) improving our existing products and prototypes through running experiments, quality assurance testing, and model validation; (4) maintaining Accrete’s task management software by documenting and revising product pages from the granular task level through the big picture of road map evolution.
