Product Manager (25289)
A very challenging role for a deeply-invested software professional interested in the field of product management. This Cambridge software company have become the market leader across several highly-successful product lines by focusing on quality, usability and simplicity, rather than a panoply of little-used or inaccessible features.
This is a job for someone who can rapidly build a deep understanding of a very technical marketplace, through their own investigations and by analysing a variety of direct feedback from users as well as analytics. It’s a job for a strategist and someone persuasive: it won’t simply be your job to point out potential, nor will you have the power to “make it so”; instead, you’ll be a very communicative and persuasive individual able to get people on side – from board level to development teams – and show them precisely why your plans are the best ones, and that you’ve thought about this from all angles. The company has an excellent track record of taking its product managers up on such well-founded plans, including making radical changes. Credit is given and initiative is rewarded.
Your concise CV (of no more than 2-3 pages) will demonstrate your commercial experience in product-focused positions and your understanding of lively, fast-moving and highly technical software businesses. You may have a product management background, or come from software development, or another technical field with a product focus. You’ll be happy to have extensive direct contact with users, and you’ll be comfortable using very technical tools to analyse results yourself. You’ll also have a good technical degree from a top university, and full permission to live and work in the UK without time limit, restriction or sponsorship.
Salary will depend very much on experience and fit. In addition, a very competitive package is available along with (full-time) flexible working.
