Job Description

What is the best thing about being Head of Product?


Would it be helping Product Managers and Product Owners realise their potential and guiding/mentoring them?


Is it seeing your influence on a Product that you built being used by real people with your own eyes, everyday?


How would you feel knowing that your products are making huge impacts to some of the biggest businesses in the world?


Does working on a mixture of both hardware and software appeal to you?


Is working with groundbreaking tech in the voice recognition, voice command and IOT space something that sounds like a place you can make a difference?


Okay, so I am interested, but what is the Head of Product role?

We are working with an industry leader in the B2B space who has a large quantity of FTSE100 businesses as customers – mostly within the retail space. Due to an internal shuffle where the existing Head of Product has moved into a more research and innovation type role, an opportunity has opened up for someone just like you to make a difference. This position will help develop a great culture and build an awesome product by managing a team of 3 Product Owners, whilst remaining, roughly 50% hands on.


Who would this Head of Product position be best suited for?

This Head of Product position will be an exciting journey for someone who wants to make a real impact at a business in a period of high growth and huge success. The product is already the leading option in the UK and the Head of Product will work on developing new features and enhancing the product, whilst also working on new product lines.


A bit about this super company:

The company is financially secure with brilliant customer retention and acquisition and they are privately owned. They have a start-up / scale-up feel in the way they work in an Agile manner and are able to adapt quickly, but they also have benefits of being an accomplished business – such as being a Times Top 100 Employer.


What type of skills are they looking for from the Head of Product?

  • Previous line management responsibilities
  • Experience working on hardware and software products
  • B2B experience
  • Passion for Product
  • Agile product management experience

    And if you have any of this, then great…

  • IOT/Telecoms/VoIP/Unified Comms experience
  • Delivered products into retail
  • Taken products global – ideally from a UK based product to a US/European market
  • Worked in environments where lots of the components are developed out of house
  • Happy working with tech teams who build in JavaScript
  • Understanding of UX and managed UX Designers before


What is in it for me?

  • Basic salary in the region of £80k
  • Strong bonus scheme
  • Plenty of training
  • Flexible work balance
  • 5% matched pension contribution
  • 25 days holiday + bank holidays + ability to buy and sell more
  • Life assurance
  • Private Medical
  • Enhanced Paternity and Maternity
  • Electric car incentives

Great – so does sound like what you want to do next?
