About the Team
CX-Find is a product team that works cross-functionally to build an intuitive customer experience that helps customers connect with the right pro for their particular needs. The team consists of engineers across the entire stack (backend, Android, web, and iOS) who work together to develop and iterate on new features for pros on the platform. We collaborate with our partners across product, research, design, analytics, marketing, and customer success to bring a well-rounded experience to pros. CX-Find owns many critical parts of the customer-facing product including the pro list, service page and the request flow.
The challenges on CX-Find include providing the most relevant signals for customers to decide on a pro that they'd like to contact and making sure that the pro that they're interested in is capable of doing their job.
