Graduate / Junior Digital Product Manager
Croydon CR0 | £22,000 - £32,000 (DOE) + Benefits Package



Would you like to join an innovative and dynamic, travel software company in a role where your talents will be used to their full capacity? The Product Manager position will allow you to utilise your passion for data analysis and problem solving whilst developing your ability to communicate effectively with both customers and colleagues.

You will need to be intellectually curious and able to probe and question our customers’ needs until you develop the understanding and detail needed to produce a clear technical narrative for our Software Development team to work from. You will, however, be given full support and training until you become fully self-sufficient in the role. If you have some technical understanding and would enjoy being surrounded by highly skilled and driven individuals in a fun and friendly environment, this could be a great opportunity for you.

Junior Digital Product Manager Summary:

Our customers have an ongoing need to create new features and functions in our platform to deliver the strategic objectives of their business. The Solutions team are responsible for collecting requirements from the customer and, with a rich and deep understanding of the customer’s business, our technology, the underlying architecture and the needs of the other customers, define excellent solutions defined in high quality specifications.

The Product Manager’s function is to support the Product Owner in the generation and documentation of solutions that deliver against the customer requirement. The purpose of the specification document is to unambiguously describe the new feature to be developed in a way that can be clearly understood by both the customer and the development team.

We have around 35 customers and a 25-strong development team.

Our specifications are generated in Google Documents, and consist of narrative, notes to support testing and one or more features defined with user stories and scenarios written in BDD (Behaviour Driven Development).

Our development outcomes are heavily dependent on successful output from the Product team.

It is acknowledged that it will take several months to become capable and even moderately self-sufficient in this role. We will provide the training and support throughout.
