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.

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).
