I hope you're well, thanks for taking the time to read this.
We're looking for a designer with product management experience to take responsibility for the product in our early-stage team.
The product is a collaborative project management platform for architects, interior designers and builders for projects up to £500k. The current alternative is Microsoft Excel. Our bespoke software increases utility and efficiency significantly but must counter apathy and flexibility by creating a simple, understandable and ideally beautiful process.
Therefore a collaborative approach with the users is required to build trust and ensure the correct route is taken. This requires a personable product manager who will represent the interests of our user base while keeping in mind the product vision of a single simple and transparent process.
The product has a developing user base of architects, interior designers, property developers and builders, of whom many are subscribing. We now need to work on its simplicity and usability so we can broaden its reach.
This will require a bit of work on the existing UX and UI. We will then have a backlog of over 100 features which we will need to prioritise, spec, design and build over the coming years ranging from timelines to payment management.
We are looking for someone who insists on beautiful as well as functional design and is keen to take ownership of the product. We are generating consistent revenue and have funding for a full development team so it is sure to be an interesting period.
- Friendly personable nature and ability to work directly with users
- 3+ years of product development experience
- 5+ years of design experience
- Holding customer interviews and collating product feedback
- Interpreting users needs into product specifications and design
- Balancing development, financial and sales interests in roadmap prioritisation
Nice to haves
- Interest/expertise in home improvement and interior design
- Entrepreneurial experience
Measures of success
Working arrangements are flexible but good communication and a similar time zone is essential. Questions are welcome.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
All the best,
