In this role you’ll be responsible for balancing needs of both the consumer and the business to prioritise products with a focus on our authors and their audiences.


Day-to-day, you’ll be responsible for the strategy, roadmap and feature definition of each product in the portfolio. This will include web and app development, support and maintenance of author products in the portfolio, design sprints as well as project and budget management.


You’ll use your communication skills to be clear around purpose and translate ideas into practical next steps.

This is a role that will directly impact the service we’re delivering to our authors and consumers, so working collaboratively with colleagues in the business, and using your communication skills to connect with people will be crucial.


Your ambition to raise the bar on quality, and your energy will inspire others about great quality product development, maintenance and innovation.


Finally, you’ll have a passion for our overall purpose which is to connect audiences to the new ideas and stories that matter.
