  • Handle team localization processes and related projects, in conjunction with cross-functional partners
  • Manage team access permissions and related issues
  • Maintain regular communication with distributed teams to gather feedback on team needs, updates, and improvements across policy creation, workflows, tooling and other areas
  • Keep LP management up-to-speed on progress against project deadlines, potential blockers, and other key developments
  • Assist in streamlining communications among teammates and stakeholders to meet deadlines, produce necessary work product, and achieve team goals
  • Keep team informed about other T&S or company-wide product updates and changes that may impact LP 
  • Work across LP to help the team demonstrate the impact of recently-shipped policies, workflows, and features with metrics and information
