Being a Product Manager is a very important role. In a nutshell, you are singlehandedly accountable for every nut, bolt and widget that goes out of your squad’s door. So the responsibility for making those product improvements that make travel a joy for our customers falls at your very feet. If that sounds like too much weight pressing on your shoulders, read no further. If it thrills you, read right on.
Skyscanner is on a journey of phenomenal growth. 30 million people every day – and counting – trust us to turn their travel nightmares into sweet dreams. No pressure, then. We pass all that responsibility into the safe hands of our product managers. Fancy the challenge? First up, you must get your head around the problems our users face and work with your team to come up with solutions. Operate a policy of continuous improvement, if you like. Next, you need to prioritize the team’s workload based on what project is going to have most impact on the business. And last (certainly not least) collaborate with an Agile squad of Really Clever People to jointly obsess about the details necessary to make the products live. All the while, continually analyzing the metrics that support your hypotheses and accurately measuring the success of the solution. In short, you are nothing less than the backbone of the whole organisation (but don’t let that go to your head).
Are you sitting too comfortably in your present role? Stand up and be counted. Apply today.
You can offer us:
A strong desire to meet challenges and get results. Great problem solving and complexity-reducing ability. A highly numerate, data literate and analytically gifted skill set. Inspirational proactivity and a passion for technology and development.
We can offer you:
An excellent career move (you may never need to job hunt again).The chance to work with world class engineering teams and engage with a massive user base. The opportunity to work somewhere where data matters more than opinions. The space to be trusted to do what you do best. And to make decisions that matter.
The freedom to do your job when it suits you best.
What do you need to apply?
We’re looking for people across all levels of experience and we’re more concerned with what you can do than what you have done. But at a minimum, you must be able to demonstrate excellent knowledge of lean product development and customer development best practices, confidence working with statistics and metrics, strong internet economy sensibilities, and the ability to communicate fluently and persuasively in a technical environment.
