Job Details

We're on a mission to make work an adventure and recruitment the most exciting thing companies do.

For our clients, each hire is the chance to find that next great person that will change their organisation - bringing fresh ideas and energy. For our candidates, each new role is the chance to develop professionally and personally, make new achievements, and meet new people. However, thanks to years of cumbersome, disengaging and expensive processes, recruitment has become something that both parties dread. Tempo is here to change that.

We launched in May 2017 and set about making this vision a reality. Our platform provides a different experience - we match people based on what really matters for modern work, bring roles and people to life using video, and enable varied ways for them to get to know each other before a match is confirmed (with an average time to hire of just 4 days, compared to industry average of 40 days). This experience has resulted in more than 75,000 candidates connected to 2,500 of the most exciting companies in the UK, including the likes of Monzo, Bulb, Drover and Goodlord to name a few.

The team has grown from 3 to 36 and we've attracted more than £8m of investment to accelerate our growth.

We're now looking for a Product Manager to join our technology team.

The successful candidate will:
  • Be central to construction of Tempo's product roadmap, and - together with the development lead - delivery of that roadmap
  • Drive Tempo's product vision to remain fit and competitive in an emerging and exciting marketplace
  • Be working directly with the CTO, senior management team and the engineering team; as well as being visible and accessible across the business
  • Oversee the company's ShapeUp product management process, which allows product ideas from any part of the business to be developed, assessed and built
  • Actively engage with users (both candidate and hiring companies) to inform product development and promote new features; as well as with the wider recruitment tech community
  • Be available on a daily basis to support the build teams in staying unblocked and focussed on their goals

  • 4 or more years of commercial experience in a software product team, ideally within the recruitment or HR-tech industry
  • Experience with the following:
    • Rapidly deep-diving into an existing product and its commercial landscape
    • Product roadmap construction and maintenance
    • Working with full-stack agile development teams supporting continuous deliveries
    • Coordinating UI/UX design, engineers and QA in small project teams
    • Using data to back product decisions
    • Engaging with real users, in either B2B or B2C situations
  • Passionate about developing their craft and about keeping abreast of new developments in both the technology sphere and the recruitment industry
  • Impeccable communication skills - you will be expected to interact constantly with all members of the business, from the development team to the senior management team
  • Motivated by Tempo's mission and vision to change the world of work; not solely by career opportunity
  • Agile qualifications or certifications (e.g. CSPO, PSPO, etc.) welcomed but by no means required
  • Experience with the ShapeUp methodology a bonus

  • Unlimited holiday
  • Sanctus mental health coaching
  • Free wellness sessions (for example, yoga, pilates)
  • £1,000 a year individual Learning & Development budget
  • Regular team events and socials
  • A high spec laptop to use during employment
  • Office based role, with flexible working options
