Job Description:

The role in a bit more detail...

As a product manager we believe you are the person that ensures everything comes together, a problem solver and negotiator, a decision maker and organiser; you demonstrate resourcefulness, initiative, calm and attention to detail, above all you are driven by a desire to deliver a great result.

As our product manager you will be working on multiple large scale and complex ecommerce projects in conjunction with developers, creatives, project managers and of course our clients. We are looking for someone that has ecommerce experience, the ability to understand and interpret client briefs, provide commercially viable solutions with a touch of flare and plan and execute project plans over multiple parallel work streams.

Our platform of choice is Magento. The successful candidate will need to be process oriented able to demonstrate experience of the full development lifecycle in digital delivery. This will be a client-facing role managing project budgets in excess of £100K.

You role will involve the following:

  • Defining project requirements and putting forward effective solutions and ideas
  • Assisting in the preparation of specifications and writing user stories
  • Working closely with the client stakeholders and managing relationships
  • Developing project plans and managing them through to successful delivery and launch. (Scrum and/or Agile methodologies advantageous)

  • Passing projects through quality assurance and user acceptance testing
  • Helping develop a clear product strategy and building solid long term visions for our clients
  • Defining and executing a road map of new features and functionality aligned with the vision
  • Solving and unblocking complex problems with a creative mindset

One more thing, innovation and ideas are at the heart of our business and this sets us apart. Our GENE Pool initiative encourages development of R&D projects alongside our day-to-day work and has led to ground breaking products such as BlueFootCMS (acquired by Magento) and the first Apple Pay, Alexa and VR integrations with Magento 2. So, if you're looking to be part of a company that embodies creativity and innovation, works on the cutting edge of emerging technologies, and truly values people and culture, then GENE is the place for you.

To fit in, it's important that you share our enthusiastic, proactive approach. 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.

What we can do for you
