Associate Product Manager

London, United Kingdom

Job Description

As an Associate Product Manager, you will deliver complex software products at scale in a challenging client-facing environment. For this role you will love leveraging people, process and tools to create powerful, beautiful and intuitive digital products as well as being passionate about technology and using it to solve complex problems.

You should have an Agile product management background with experience navigating the software development lifecycle, and understand how to leverage a multitude of Agile techniques such as Scrum, Kanban and XP.

You have a deep interest in analyzing problems, designing solutions and making them a reality. You know how to ask effective, direct and insightful questions. You have a unique ability to quickly absorb complex, ambiguous concepts and rapidly organize them into structured requirements.

You are experienced in crafting a product backlog that is clear, concise and technically sound. Your communication style is direct and succinct. You don’t use 10 words to explain yourself when 2 will do. You concisely articulate technical concepts to non-technical audiences and enjoy giving client presentations on technical projects.

You will tackle all of this, and still be hungry for more. If this sounds like you, then you belong here.

As a member of Devbridge, you will have the opportunity to work on some of the most complex challenges in the web and mobile space today.
