Product Manager

Permanent
Remote

Product Manager opportunity with an early-stage tech startup looking to tackle culture management for leading businesses and brands.

Our client is on a mission to arm businesses with a product that can diagnose, define, and track organisational culture, helping leaders put culture at the heart of business. They have now developed a customisable, web-based culture measurement tool, enabling customers to do just this and a beta release is already in use with a small number of satisfied clients. With a planned MVP launch just months away, they are looking to hire a Product Manager who will play a critical role in helping define and shape the product, managing the offshore dev team and ensure it can scale rapidly.

This would be a great opportunity for an ambitious individual looking to forge a career in product management who has the confidence to take a new product within a new business and scale it into a sizeable proposition.

About the role:

  • Ensure the technical quality of the product
  • Manage the relationship with the off-shore technical delivery team, ensuring on-time, in-budget delivery, and functional quality in accordance with an agreed product roadmap;
  • Define objectives and KPIs for product performance and delivery;
  • Management/curation of the product backlog, writing clearly defined user stories, requirements for new product features, issues, enhancements, and other backlog items, providing clear value-based acceptance criteria which are understood by the whole team;
  • Eliciting and prioritising work targeted at both the feature development, go-to-market efficiencies, and operational stability of the product;
  • Validation and prioritisation of requirements based on business and commercial priorities having regard for existing commitments and broader product strategy;
  • Ensure bugs are captured and managed efficiently with the development team;
  • Own and manage the testing process - creating, maintaining, and actioning test plans containing manual and automated tests, ensuring full coverage of the user stories;
  • Produce high-quality release notes for key contacts and relevant user groups to drive engagement with new features across the user base;
  • Take ownership for product releases into production, post-live user experience and service reliability. Ensure appropriate monitoring and alerting is implemented, and that live support is appropriately prioritised vs. new feature development;
  • Effectively communicate progress on the area of the product development (release scope and expected product capabilities/behaviour).

About you:

  • Two or more years’ experience working as a Product Manager or Product Owner on a B2B product;
  • Experience with BDD, scaled agile, and scrum software development methodologies;
  • B2B platform/marketplace experience
  • SaaS product experience (web client with back-end platform) and proven full product life cycle commercial experience;
  • HRTech experience is desirable but not essential
  • Experience with rapidly testing and measuring success of UX changes;
  • Very strong oral, written and listening communication skills, including excellent grammar, with the ability to articulate complex concepts in simple terms;
  • A self-motivated, adaptive team-player who thrives in a start-up environment and actively seeks additional responsibility and autonomy;
  • A logical approach, with the ability to organise and structure information, extract the relevant points, and ask sensible questions to clarify;
  • A confident and committed leader – not afraid to say “no” or make difficult decisions;
  • Enthusiasm and passion for great products and services and an ability to articulate product vision and functionality in an understandable and compelling way.

On offer:

  • Salary of £50k - £60k+ equity
  • Fully remote role within the UK
  • Paid travel to meetings in London when required
  • Opportunity for fast career progression
