You will be responsible for Agile product delivery as well as full commercialisation of the suite of Procurement Technology products that sit around e-invoicing, data capture, dynamic discounting and Supply Chain Finance.

Location: London, City
You’ll manage a team of 3 Product Managers who cover the global Procure Tech and Alternative Finance products for this 400 person Fintech and will report into C-level. You will have your own, clearly stated methodology when it comes to:
Client Engagement – you must have experience dealing with large corporate clients, workshopping and filtering their needs to provide solutions around your product set. B2B and Saas background is essential, on that basis.
Agile Software Methods – fully practiced Product Owner with understanding of development delivery velocity and product backlog management, as well as the various tools that enable it. Development savvy, with some technical depth ideal.
Commercialisation – Owning the product marketing roadmap and ensuring uptake at enterprise level. You will quickly get to understand the Accounts Payable / Procure tech space, market trends and key competitors to pointedly contribute to the global product strategy
Leadership – have shown your ability to mentor Product Management teams previously. You’ll produce a roadmap with recommendations and decisions, prioritising future moves.
You will need to develop or decommission current products – within this will be certain BAU work around internal systems, but there is focus on new product development for the most part.
This will also include commercial & technical assessment of new products and their management, including timelines for launches, to ensure that all stay on track and any issues are clearly reported.
Working with the Digital Centre, produce a detailed customer experience framework including user journeys in order to define a range of product variants and features;
-Proven experience in a B2B Technology Product Leadership role – ideally as a Head of Product Management or a Senior Product Manager with proven line management of at least 2 other Product Managers or Product Owners.
-Client-focused – filtering client needs and providing solutions around the product set
-Have led a product management team, or demonstrable leadership equivalent
-Proven Agile Product Owner
-Technology-as-a-Product background – Fintech / Procure Tech background highly advantageous
This is a business critical Head of Product Management role that will own the product initiative for a major Fintech business. You will own the design-led evangelism - designing new solutions that solve problems for their clients or improves their clients jobs so that they can be more productive, based on direct client needs analysis.
While this is a Head of Product Management position, it is a hands-on role, despite the seniority, and whilst being Head of Product Management implies strategy, you’ll need to be able and willing to get your hands dirty with clients to fix solutions, as well as fan out the broader strategy later in the role.
It’s a great Head of Product Management opportunity to turn around a Product team that requires mentorship, development and scaling, in addition to the running the product roadmap
