As a Product Manager at HumanSignal you will have a tremendous impact on the product direction and help define the future roadmap based on the customer requests and long term product vision. While HumanSignal is a distributed organization, for this role we have a strong preference to hire to work in the San Francisco Bay Area, United States, for this role so that the Product Team may work in a more hybrid capacity.
