ProdPad is cloud-based product management software used by 1000+ companies, including companies like Adobe, DWP, Autodesk, Mozilla, Amazon, KLM and NHS Education.
It’s a "software as a service" (SaaS) web tool designed to help teams build better products. By providing a single interface that collects all of the input from an organisation's broad base of users (both external prospects & customers, and internal groups - like sales, customer care and development), ProdPad provides product managers a beautiful interface to organise their product backlog, build their roadmap, and send their requirements to development via any of our incredibly useful integrations.
As a company we’re constantly striving for the best product management practices ourselves, so you can expect to be a part of a truly agile workplace (continuous iterative improvement, not arbitrary deadlines!), building, learning and iterating on our product to make it better for our users with continuous research and weekly deployments in place so you’ll be regularly contributing to improvements to the product.
