Product Manager – London at What3Words
London, GB

We are looking for a junior to mid-level Product Manager with a passion for creating and evangelising great products to join the what3words product team. Our products include our API and SDK, our mobile apps (iOS, Android, 3WordPhoto, and more) and map site, our plugins for e-commerce partners, a number of Voice Assistant extensions, and really anything that a person or business can use to interface in some way with the underlying what3words technology. Basically if it’s our technology and it has the what3words name on it, we’ll be involved somehow.

Reporting to the Head of Product, this role will be instrumental in translating functional user stories into technical requirements that fit with our overall business strategy. On a day-to-day basis, you’ll be responsible for managing the development team’s backlog for your products, defining user stories, running sprint meetings and co-ordinating with the business to ensure on-time, on-budget and to-specification feature releases. You’ll also work heavily with our Product Designers to develop and test great new features to help users get the most of of what3words technology.

With a strong technical background and an ideally proven track record of managing live technology products, you’ll be adept at consolidating an ever-changing range of “to-dos” into agile development cycles whilst being able to respond to both shorter-term opportunities and keep in line with the company’s overall strategic priorities.

Demonstrating excellent interpersonal skills, you’ll be able to work with and influence people across the team, as well as being a key evangelist inside and outside the company on all things what3words.

Requirements

Essential:

  • Excellent communication skills in written and spoken English
  • A strong technical, academic background
  • Previous experience leading product development of an app or consumer tech product
  • Previous experience working with in-house design teams
  • Roadmapping skills
  • A passion for and understanding of agile software development
  • The ability to work in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment
  • Previous Product Owner/Project Management experience

Highly desirable:

  • Competency using project management tools such as Jira
  • Managing or writing A/B test cases
  • Experience of rapid prototyping development cycles
  • Experience handling multilingual products and localisation processes
  • An interest in maps and location – we love maps!

We have a relaxed and focused office in West London, with regular team socials and many other benefits including private health care and season ticket loans. We have a culture that encourages curiosity and imagination in how we achieve our goals, and an absolute focus on building a global business.
