You will work with customers to maintain an in-depth understanding of changing needs and priorities, collaborate with both internal and external experts to gain market intelligence and insights and deliver business cases for new product, feature and enhancement recommendations for the company’s product portfolio. You will also recommend suitable partners and suppliers to assist in the delivery of the product strategy and continually analayse and review the commercial performance of new and existing products against KPIs.  

To be considered for this role, candidates will have a proven background as a Senior Product Manager or Head of Product, leading B2B or B2C product strategies specifically within the sports betting or media industries.  You will have a deep knowledge of sports betting and/or sports data and a strong track record of successfully delivering ground-breaking products and services to engage with the consumer.  You should have a genuine passion for digital technology, market trends, sports, the betting market and creating value through innovation. 

Applicants will be self-motivated, driven and proactive, be confident working with multiple stakeholders and suppliers and possess excellent attention to detail. You will have exceptional interpersonal, communication, presentation and project management skills, along with a methodical approach. 

This is a fantastic opportunity to join a start-up venture at a very exciting time of growth, in a newly created role offering the autonomy to set the direction of a brand new product strategy and play a significant role in driving the business forward. A highly competitive salary package will be offered, including generous benefits and a bonus scheme.
