You will be responsible for enabling the commercial success of your product or products, which includes both the operations of the product (uptime, performance, and user experience) and the successful delivery of the product roadmap (features).

It will be your responsibility to monitor and report on the production usage of your product/products; ensuring pro-active steps are taken to stay one step ahead of customer demand, where customers may be internal or external.

You will keep a strategic view of the demands on, and limitations to, the products and use this to constantly improve the operations of the product.

  • Ensure your team are able to provide the necessary support, in and out of hours, to our customers. Drive improvements in this support.
  • You will be expected build a technology function where teams and products are loosely coupled but tightly aligned: We don’t want tight dependencies between products as that makes delivery more complicated, but we do need all products improving the overall solution and heading in the same direction
  • Given your expertise we will ask you to ensure a balance between consistency and flexibility: teams need freedom when it comes to process and technology choices, but when appropriate it has to be consistent between teams.

Who you are

We want you and your leadership skills on-board, you’ll be the go to person to help get things done.

  • As a natural, confident and clear communicator you will have experience liaising with technical and non-technical teams and across organisational boundaries.
  • You’ll be experienced in communicating with support staff, delivery team members and C-Level executives and know how to tailor your communications to the audience.
  • You will be motivated by getting things done, and getting them done in the right way, first time; you are laser focussed on achieving the best outcome.
  • As a valued Manager within the business, we would like to be aware of the business and commercial pressures relevant to your teams, your dynamic leadership skills will pragmatically balance delivery against the pressure – you realise that we don’t always operate in a perfect world and it will be necessary for you to make difficult decisions from time to time.
  • You will have experience of rapid business changes and be able to keep your team motivated, energised and on track through these periods.
  • Using your communication skills you will keep key stakeholders aware of progress against plans and help mitigate risks. You will understand that the identification of risks and issues is not enough – when escalating you will provide recommendations and solutions.
