About this job
User experience is so important these days. With a plethora of online options available for just about anything, one little bug or poor online experience is enough to turn a potential customer away and into the arms of a competitor. The digital world is a cruel and unforgiving one.
If you know this and you understand how to optimise a digital product to really increase engagement, Better Placed are recruiting for a Digital Product Manager position that you may be interested in. The company is 100% working from home at the moment but they weren’t far from this, pre-pandemic, anyway as they have a mature environment where they hire the right people and trust them to live up to their accountabilities. They also have a wider package which includes enhanced wellness programmes, personal development initiatives and a record of promoting people internally so the turnover of staff is very low.
In this position, you’ll be managing a product roadmap for an existing digital product. Your main goals will be to increase engagement and optimise the online functions, working in an agile team of UX Designers, Developers and Digital Marketing people. It’s a reasonably large company so you’ll be dealing with stakeholders from different departments and taking different opinions on board to formulate the best strategies for the product so you’ll need a bit of patience at times and a backbone!
This isn’t a technical product role, you will have all the help you need. This is very much a role where you will be leading on product initiatives, continuously looking for enhancements based on the insight and testing available to you and ultimately taking accountability for improving UX and online customer journey.
Ideally, you’ll have a background in managing product roadmaps with software or digital products and have the ability and confidence to manage multiple stakeholders and get things over the line. You’ll need to be familiar with modern principles in UX and UI and used to working in an agile environment where things can change quickly.
If this sounds like you and you’re interested in learning more, please apply now! Based in Yorkshire, everything is 100% remote for now and for the foreseeable. Hopefully, you enjoy working from home.
