This is a rare opportunity for a Senior Product Manager to join a leading brand and help create high end consumer audio products.
Reporting to the Director of Product Strategy you’ll be responsible for defining the product brief, cascading it to the relevant development teams and ensuring it hits the mark and to do this you’ll be working closely with a wide range of specialists, up to board level.
R&D Engineers are based in the UK and California so regular trips to the west coast will be part of your remit. Other partners are based in Asia so at other times you’ll be heading east. Expect to be travelling quite a bit.
This is a super busy position and products are usually launched within 12 months. The key traits of successful Product Managers are self-confidence, decision making, open communication and interpersonal skills as well as the ability to multitask.
This opportunity would suit a Product Manager who has developed several products in the premium technology space. We are looking for drive and ownership of product strategy as well as team leadership attributes.
