  • About the Role: Houst, an innovative scale-up based in London, is redefining our interaction with the world. We're on the lookout for a Head of Product who embodies the spirit of a true artisan. This role isn't just about strategising and refining our product—it's about being deeply involved in its creation. We're searching for someone who is a craftsperson at heart, someone who thrives in uncharted territories and is passionate about pioneering novel solutions. If you are a hands-on professional who relishes the idea of sculpting unique solutions from scratch, this role is tailor-made for you.

    Responsibilities:

    • Craft and execute a product strategy and roadmap, ensuring it resonates with Houst’s strategic vision.
    • Guide, motivate, and cultivate a talented product team, creating an environment where craftsmanship and excellence thrive.
    • Engage in market and user research with the precision of an artisan, uncovering new opportunities and areas for refinement.
    • Collaborate closely with Engineering, Design, Marketing, and Sales teams, weaving together their expertise for seamless product development and launch.
    • Measure and interpret key product metrics with an artisan's eye, using this insight to guide strategic decisions.
    • Manage end-to-end project plans, ensuring the meticulous and timely delivery of each element.
    • Be the voice of our customers, empathetically understanding their needs and channeling this into product enhancements.
    • Encourage a culture of experimentation and innovation, akin to an artist's studio, where testing, learning, and evolving are part of the craft.

    Requirements

    1. Proven experience in product leadership, ideally in a start-up setting, with a portfolio of successfully crafted and launched products.
    2. A hands-on, proactive approach, blending strategic foresight with a craftsman's attention to detail and execution.
    3. Strong leadership and team-building skills, with a history of nurturing and developing high-performing teams.
    4. A deep customer focus, akin to an artisan understanding their patron, translating user needs into product features.
    5. Exceptional problem-solving abilities, with a creative and outside-the-box mindset.
    6. Clear and effective communication skills, able to converse with stakeholders across all levels.
    7. This role is more than a job; it's an opportunity to be at the forefront of Houst's product journey, shaping the future of the short-term rental industry with your craftsmanship. If you're a strategic thinker with a passion for product innovation and a desire to make a tangible impact, we welcome your application.
