Your role

Growth Product Managers play a key role in defining our business and product strategy on selected key topics. They act as an intermediary between smartclip’s main stakeholders and the business product owner teams to execute the long-term vision of the company.


Do you feel excited about how the Digital and the Audio industry are coming together when it comes to advertising technology and ad serving? Then you are in the right place. You will be responsible for guiding and providing our leading broadcaster and publisher clients  with the right insights on the right products to join both worlds together.  A new challenge has developed with the digitisation of traditional radio advertising: traditional digital advertisements have been designed to fill an ad slot with just a single ad, while modern ad decision systems must be capable of filling ad slots with a sequence of ads that must follow complex rule sets — creating the need for hybrid models of digital and linear ads. This is a new field in digital advertising and your role will be in charge of pioneering solutions that address this problem.


Beyond the definition and alignment of an overall product strategy, you will play a vital role in discovering what needs to be built next and create a cohesive roadmap for our audio related growth products. You will assess what our users really want and create features that delight our customers. Growth Product Managers are involved in regular exchanges with our main stakeholders to advocate our product strategy and vision while also understanding their ideas and requirements. You are expected to be a customer spokesman, product visionary, team champion, and a strategic leader. This breadth of tasks make this position one of the most colorful and diverse roles in our company. This role not only  requires an excellent good understanding of the business, but also solid knowledge of the product field, paired with excellent communication skills.
