Ecommerce Product Manager - Gene Commerce

Brighton and Hove

Closing date: 30/11/2017

Come and join one of the most progressive, exciting and ambitious agencies in Brighton, recently voted Best Agency at the 2017 Ecommerce Excellence Awards

Since starting in 2013, Gene has evolved from being a boutique ecommerce agency in Brighton to one of the most effective certified Magento experts in the UK creating and developing some of the most challenging and innovative ecommerce websites and software.

We never wanted to be just another digital agency. Instead of following best practice, we wanted to shape it. We were the first to release Apple Pay for the web on the Magento platform and we have revolutionised Magento’s content management capability with our BlueFootCMS software. As ecommerce partners we are trusted by clients such as PayPal, Braintree, Hornby, Scalextric, Airfix, Gandys, Protein World, Green People and Temple Spa.

Our progressive employee-owned structure encourages a culture where everyone feels empowered, challenged and motivated to succeed. We live by 5 principles; we want to be challenged, we want our work to have purpose, we want to achieve great results, work with people we like and enjoy what we do.

Our clients partner with us because they need a specialist ecommerce agency that can out-think and out-manoeuvre their competitors. An agency that can offer credible hands-on-consultancy backed up with the technical and creative expertise to get things done. They trust us to take a proactive leadership role in managing their online commerce, whilst also being personally involved in the decisions that shape the success of their business.

  • Help define project requirements and put forward effective solutions and ideas
  • Assist in preparing specifications and user stories
  • Work closely with the client stakeholders and manage relationships
  • Develop project plans and manage them through to successful delivery and launch. Scrum and/or Agile methodologies advantageous

  • Pass projects through quality assurance and user acceptance testing
  • Help develop a clear product strategy and build solid long term visions for our clients

  • Solve and unblock complex problems with a creative mindset

This is a small team environment demanding a dynamic and flexible team player, strong interpersonal skills and a commercial mind with the ability to influence, engage and negotiate at all levels.

So why would you want to work for our agency? Well, we are a group of creative, ambitious, talented, hard working guys and girls, single minded in our commitment to delivering the very best in product and service for our customers.
