You will be responsible for ensuring the hardware technology roadmap includes product capabilities that give members the insights they need and unlock future WHOOP coaching. Your role will be to develop and execute the product strategy for these new products, while also ensuring that they meet the same high standards of quality and user experience as the WHOOP wearable.
