You have an experienced and proven eye for detail, but you're fed up with working with a boring product?

Being in charge of the company's specifications, you will work extremely closely with the senior decision-makers of the company, allowing you to have potential input on the company plans, also putting you in the position to learn more about these senior positions which could be where you want to end up.

Overall, this role comes with influence and recognition, which everyone wants.
