About the product manager role

Product managers are the glue between strategy and delivery. A product manager carries a wide variety of responsibilities, all to the benefit of building valuable products that iterate their way towards product-market fit.

We describe our operating principles on the following page: 

What we look for in an outstanding product manager:

  • You have an entrepreneurial mindset
  • You carry out our values and assure high delivery quality standards
  • You keep a relentless focus on product value delivery
  • You inspire teams to deliver their best work
  • You understand and honour great software engineering
  • You choose progress over process every day of the week
  • You fundamentally care about the product's end users
  • You can bring structure in unstructured environments
  • You'll continuously contribute to further learnings and operational efficiencies

About yourself

  • You have a master's degree
  • You are recently graduated or about to graduate at the end of this academic year and looking for a first job experience.
  • You thrive in a dynamic environment where things move fast
  • You're willing to travel for business (Ukraine, USA, Portugal)

What you'll do on a day-to-day basis:

  • Work on product strategy and the delivery roadmap for multiple parallel products
  • Map the defined roadmap into an outstanding product design, high level architecture, functional documentation, etc (with support from the whole team)
  • Align with our clients and partners on the next priorities to chase
  • Continuously build a backlog of user stories and correctly prioritise features
  • Keep oversight over the operational model (sprint planning, daily standups, demos)
  • Communicate with all stakeholders, both internally and externally
  • Keep a tight grip on budgets
