Octopus’s success is built on delivering an incredible service to our customers. We are currently undergoing a transformation in the way we deliver products and services to our customers – from predominantly offline to an online world. As Head of Product you will lead the team that understands how we should deliver excellence digitally and deliver this seamlessly in products people want to use.
You will own the roadmaps and user experience for all Octopus products. You will work closely with the senior management to create the product vision in line with the commercial strategy of the business. This will involve using quantitative and qualitative feedback to continually enhance existing products as well generating ideas for new products. You will understand the overall business strategy and challenges, as well as the external market and competition, and will ensure that the product strategy is continually optimised to address all of these factors.
It is critical in this role to have a track record in running product teams in commercial environments with multiple stakeholders. You should have the vision for what brilliance in product looks and feels like, and the perseverance, eye for detail and management skills to achieve it.
Managing a team of approx. 10 product managers and working closely with the engineering, QA and IT Ops team leads, you will play a key role in continually improving our ways of working to ensure that the product development process delivers the maximum impact for the business.
Your responsibilities will include:
