Product Manager/Owner

Job description

Intro

We are looking for an experienced Product Manager that has a good sense of product management. Do you get a kick to see something cool evolve out of chaos? Then this is the job for you!


We are accepting applications for the next two months and we fill the open position as soon as we’ve found the right candidate.

About the Position

Product Manager/Owner

As a Product Manager you will be assigned to work on one of our products and be responsible for the performance of the entire product/service. This means you’ll have to work across all the disciplines required to run a product and you work directly with the CEO.

You’ll work in a fast-paced, and ever-changing environment where you can really add value.
This is what that looks like:

Strategy & Organisation

You work with the CEO on figuring out the optimal value proposition and product positioning.

Product
You work with designers and developers to create the best possible product that delivers the value proposition to the market. You hand-on test the product as much as often to be sure what we deliver is awesome.

Reach
This is where we promote the product/service. You work with the copywriter and manage the campaigns. You live for the metrics and make data based decisions.

Convert
Closing the deal. You also close deals yourself because you want to be in touch with the market we’re working on.

Engage

This is where we deliver the product/service to the customer. You make sure they get to the ‘Aha’-moment as soon as possible. You watch the retention and engagement metrics all the time.
We use the product/market-fit model to tweak the product and learn how to create optimal product/market fit.
