Miro is looking for an experienced digital accessibility professional with experience in product management, and preferably UX, to lead Miro’s accessibility effort.
As an Accessibility Product Lead you’ll be responsible for enabling the product development organization to develop and maintain the accessible product for millions of users. It requires a deep understanding of digital accessibility, ability to strategize the accessibility program company-wide, prioritize and coordinate cross-functional work across the organization.
You should go beyond WCAG guidelines by understanding real use cases and scenarios to coordinate and plan work based on real impact and customer needs, not only compliance policies.
You’ll be partnering with Product, Design and Engineering leaders to establish the foundation and roll out operational accessibility practices and frameworks to elevate the Product Development at Miro. You also will be in charge of identifying, and helping the team to scope accessibility features and ensure clear roadmaps of making Miro truly accessible for people with different access needs.
The leader we’re looking for should also be extremely customer-centric and comfortable to represent the company in front of our Enterprise customers, build a strong partnership relationship with them, communicate the progress and surfacing their needs and requirements to inform our planning.
The beauty and the challenge of the Accessibility Product Lead role at Miro is all about making accessible the non-linear free-form visual collaboration tool. It requires designing and thinking of new experiences, as well as defining industry-standards for it.
