As part of this, there is a requirement for a Product Manager to own the existing OPEN Housing and new One Housing products, and to act as a key stakeholder and product evangelist in the delivery of the market requirements in an Agile and Scrum approach to team working. The Product Manager will also ensure that the vision, objectives, design and implementation of the new product is delivered as per market, customer and prospect requirements, as well as taking the product to new markets.

  • Create and actively evolve the Product Roadmap detailing both short and medium-term product goals, technology, themes, key functional changes and improvements. Ensure this is a 'living document' which reflects changing priorities and market needs.
  • Communicate and manage stakeholder input from customers, sales, marketing, product launch, professional services and other interested parties. Be able to filter all such information and use it to mould the product direction and roadmap.

Your experience will include:
  • Sound knowledge of Software Product Management principles
  • An aptitude for written communication and an ability to produce documentation with ease
