Business Technology is the engineering team within Business Operations, our internal consulting department – they’re the decision support mechanism that connects data, business insights and an internal tech stack (systems) with the rest of the organization. The Business Technology team develops internal software, integrations and data infrastructure. Our work unlocks improved operational outcomes, workflow efficiencies and new business insights across our organization. We help teams leverage data, tools and technology in order to successfully execute on their own mandates. We research, develop and maintain systems which support other internal teams from an operational and analytical perspective.
Reporting to the Manager, Product Management the Product Manager will work with to ensure we are identifying and executing on the highest priority initiatives. You will collaborate with cross-department teams to help guide the success of projects, utilize data and research to understand and validate top priorities, conceptualize a strategy, execute with the team and measure success. You will be a motivator for your team, keeping them engaged and excited about driving business outcomes across all corners of Jobber’s ecosystem.
The Product Manager will:
- Take on the full responsibilities of a Scrum Team Product Owner. This includes executing the product management workflow, backlog management (writing and prioritizing Epics and Stories), participating in Scrum events (Sprint Planning, Sprints, Scrums, Sprint Reviews, Retrospectives), estimation and testing.
- Understand the user experience through qualitative and quantitative research. In order to understand the stakeholders, you’ll have to take large amounts of data points, research, and feedback and distill it down to what is truly important.
- Be responsible for product vision and strategy. You will own the creative process of generating, developing, and curating new ideas. By understanding the connections between people’s day-to-day work, the overall company vision, and stakeholder needs, you can prioritize building what matters to achieve the company’s strategic goals and initiatives.
- Deliver features and frameworks that make an impact on customers. You’ll work collaboratively across Product Development to prioritize work by ranking it against strategic goals and initiatives.
- Build a plan, implement, and then measure success. You’ll be responsible for a timeline for implementation of new ideas, and then defining the release process and coordinating all activities to get a project launched. Once implemented, you will help determine what success looks like for the solutions you help build, measuring that success, and keeping stakeholders informed of that progress so that your team can make iterative decisions based on results.
To be successful, you should have:
- Previous experience working in a scrum/agile environment.
- An ability to motivate. You listen before speaking and understand before providing solutions. You focus on the relationship and build trust easily.
- Execution excellence. Creating insights is one thing – leading and driving execution is another. You are motivated by getting things across the finish line and have a solid track record of managing projects and multiple priorities at any given time.
- A data mindset. You look to data to define a problem and you also look to data to demonstrate success. You are energized by the ability to contextualize your work through various tools, systems and processes.
- A desire to collaborate. To deliver high-quality features as quickly as possible, you’ll need to partner with many different people and departments.
- A knack for the details, with an understanding of the big picture. In your role, the details matter, and help drive your team forward with a sense of direction and clarity.
- Next level communication skills. Your written and verbal communication skills help articulate the voice of the customer and the needs of the business.
- A passion for technology. You are naturally curious about technology and tend to be an early adopter for most things. You appreciate how technology can solve many business problems and are driven to make a lasting impact for our customers.
- Ownership. You are driven to do the right things for your work. You are accountable to both your successes and your shortcomings.
