The Digital Product Strategist (DPS) position is primarily a user and software research and consulting role. Often, their work takes place in the Discovery phase that precedes a Design and Build Phase, but they will also undertake their work in consulting, research-only, or post-initial launch projects. The DPS helps our clients, and internal teams, discover and define the specifics of what their digital product – usually large websites, web apps, mobile apps, or multi-platform software – can and should look like. They need to be able to walk the line between user needs and stakeholder needs; uncover requirements both stated and unknown; come up with solutions that others might not see; and ultimately make recommendations to our clients and projects teams with regard to features, workflows, and the macro digital products themselves.
