I'm working with a scalable tech start-up looking for a Head of Product. Their social mission will affect the lives of people who may not have "online" access. Using the latest techniques within Machine Learning they're growing out a knowledge sharing platform that will increase insight, resources and support for millions of people.

As the company continue to expand globally, a key strategic part of their growth is to build a brand new marketplace product. The Head of Product will focus on identifying the needs of the customer, create it's product roadmap and determine it's long-term product vision.

The product is entirely greenfield and will require a "hands-on" Head of Product with a strong understanding of ecommerce, conversion and excellent commercial chops!

As teams are co-located there will be some travel required.

Responsibilities & Requirements
*5+ years' experience within a Product Management role, ideally with 1+ years in a Leadership position.
*Strong exposure to ecommerce/marketplace products with either a B2B or B2C focus.
*Comfortable building and leading cross-functional teams both on-site and off-shore.
*A preference for working in a Lean/Agile environment
*A passion for customer research and discovery, understanding customer pain points and areas of opportunity
*Superb communication skills and stakeholder management
*Ideally you will have start-up experience and will have experience launching products and features.

This is an excellent opportunity for a Product Leader looking to step in to a formal Head of Product role. You will be supporting a VP of Product with commercials, strategy & delivery in a fast-paced and autonomous working environment.
