QuantSpark helps businesses by blending commercial strategy, data modelling and software development to support smarter decisions. We use complex datasets, build bespoke analytical tools and derive meaningful insights, to tackle strategic problems.

Our teams excel because we are interdisciplinary, creative and focused on providing social and commercial impact. Our work spans both the private and public sector, with clients including the United Nations, FTSE100 companies, high street retailers and Private Equity portfolio companies.

Our recent projects include:

analysing 1bn+ of transactions to help a supermarket decide how to allocate their store space

creating a location intelligence model to inform social impact communications campaigns

What the role is about

We are looking for a Product Manager to take ownership of the product direction of several projects. Whilst client-driven, the projects have a clear potential to lead to the creation of fully-fledged products. Your role will consist in understanding client needs, framing them into a clear direction that our teams can follow, and detailing the vision and shape of the new products, eventually seeing them throughout to their launch.

These products will cover a range of topics (including online content collection, analysis and data processing), as well as various industries (social media, web platforms, etc). As such you will be exposed to a wide set of challenges and will be working with several teams, and you will have plenty of opportunities to bring in your own expertise and introduce your preferred best practices. You will also work closely with, and report to, our Founder and MD.

Requirements

We welcome applications from any educational background. We don't expect you to be brilliant at everything, but we value a broad set of competencies, so any interest in data science or strategy would be appreciated as well.

You should have experience in the following:

Software product management (whole lifecycle, client-facing, multiple products)

Working with and supporting teams of software developers

Creative problem solving

Agile principles (eg Kanban, Scrum) and development tools (eg Jira, Trello)
