Technical Product Manager

The job in a nutshell

We start by identifying a problem, then we throw our ideas, talent and tech capabilities at it. The big problem we've been focused on is addressing 'botheration'. How do we encourage people to be more bothered about saving time and money? How do we, through product development, reduce the hassle for them?

Working under Platform Services, you will have a unique opportunity to unlock the true potential of propositions designed to take the hassle away from saving money by working on a B2B API product that can revolutionise the way millions of people save money. This is a product that is also a trusted provider of white-labelled energy comparison services to over 200 partners, including some of the UK’s best-known consumer organisations, including Which?.

This is a technical, data-led product role that will be the perfect fit for someone that has worked with APIs as a product, is at home with SaaS propositions and has the experience with enterprise-level software platforms to help standardise our products as we push forward through innovation.
