The Role

Product Manager - Simplify Digital

Want the environment of a start-up within a FTSE 75 company?

Chances are you’ve tried to change supplier for your television, phone, broadband or energy services before.

Did you have a memorable experience as a consumer? We’re here to make it a ‘yes’

We're a high growth technology and retail business. We develop deal comparison SaaS for triple play: TV, Phone and Broadband. It's a complex industry with over 5,000 products, each with several variants - we're here to offer customers the right option.

Right now, we’re in the midst of some big changes which we want you to be involved in, including:

  • Scaling up our technology teams
  • Migration of our new and existing applications to AWS
  • Planning and building out our new Omni-channel integration
  • Integrating into Dixons Carphone

What’s it like working here:

Our Product Managers report into the Product Director. As custodians of the product roadmap, they work closely with the design and technology teams (usually 3-7 per team) on the various products Simplifydigital have created – including energy switching apps, retention software, instore deal comparison…

  • We work in a collaborative, Agile team environment.
  • Our Product Managers have one foot in technology and one in commercial strategy.
  • Accept responsibility and take ownership for the ongoing quality of our products.
  • Use A/B testing and data analytics.
  • We’ll welcome your opinions on any new technologies and solutions that might improve performance.

Sounds good? You’ll do great here if you:

  • Are a confident communicator, with both technical and non-technical people.
  • You ‘do’ Agile properly.
  • Have a strong strategic vision for your products, coupled with the intuition and insight to spot tactical issues that need your involvement.
  • Are an advocate of best-breed practices including test-driven design, code reviews, continuous integration…
  • Have a degree in a technical discipline like Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics…

If that sounds like you, here's why you'll enjoy working here:

  • We aren't corporate and don't wear suits.
  • We're backed by Dixons Carphone , a FTSE 75 company.
  • Great team and company-wide events: Escape rooms, hackathons, junkyard golf, bowling, team lunches….
  • We promote flexible working.
  • Yearly bonus!
  • We're hands-off managers
  • Staff encouraged to stuff themselves with free fruit, velvet cake and takeaways...
  • ... But we have a subsidised gym membership to counter that (we also have a free onsite gym at Acton HQ)

A few of our awards include:

  • One of Europe's fastest growing technology businesses in the 2013 GP Bullhound Media Momentum Awards.
  • We've been awarded the Sunday Times Tech Track 100
  • The Deloitte Technology Fast 50 awards for the past three years in a row (2015, 2014 & 2013)
  • Innovation in Analytics 2016
