Job details

About Crunch:

Crunch is a multi-award winning Software as a Service (SaaS) company born in the heart of Brighton with a brilliant team of 130, over 17,500 clients and 50,000 Crunch Chorus members. Together, we single-handedly pioneered a complete online accounting solution to empower self-employed contractors, freelancers and micro-businesses in the UK, helping them to grow their business and create the lives they want as part of a powerful community.

Now we no longer have a large office base as we embrace remote-first ways of working, the role offers you the opportunity to work remotely all the time, or a mixture of office and remote working if you would prefer, as we have some co-working office space in the Brighton & Hove area.

We have an exciting new permanent, full-time Senior Product Manager role in our Transformation & Product team.

This hands-on role will work closely with our Strategic Product Consultant, Operations & Transformation Director and the rest of the Transformation & Product team to define our product direction and prioritise the Crunch product roadmap, aligning with the Crunch strategic objectives and customer requirements.

  • Integrate usability studies, research and market analysis into product requirements to enhance customer satisfaction and grow the Crunch product.
  • Define and analyse metrics that inform the success of products and Return on Investment (ROI), utilising data to inform decisions, drive continuous improvement and determine our strategic direction.
  • Analyse market trends and competitor offerings to identify opportunities for new or enhanced product features through rigorous experimentation.
  • Be a primary point of contact for product matters, represent the team in meetings internally and externally.
  • Ensure team involvement in wider business incident management and resolution.
  • Develop the product discipline including coaching and mentoring others in the team.
  • Line management of existing and future team members as required.
  • Embrace the usage of the Hibob system, which is being used by Crunch to complete regular 121 and quarterly review conversations, and for setting and tracking company and department Objectives and Key Results (OKRs).
  • Promote an incremental ‘Agile’ development strategy where appropriate, ensuring that value is delivered quickly and efficiently.
  • Be actively involved in external networking and events to raise Crunch’s profile in the Product community.
  • Keep your finger on the pulse with advances in product management and share this knowledge with others at Crunch.
