Senior Product Development Manager - Consumer Mobile

Working for one of the major challenger brands within the Consumer Mobile Telecoms market as a Senior Product Development Manager, you will be responsible for bringing specific large-scale product developments to market, starting from the insight ideation phased right through to delivery into life, leading cross functional teams, successfully landing market leading customer centric products which provide a competitive edge in a highly competitive and fast-paced market.


You're going to have end-to-end ownership of the product development cycle, from:

  • Definition and delivery of the product requirements
  • Definition of the expected customer experience
  • Agreeing the payback lifecycle (break even, time to profit, etc), issue resolution or any changes to billing capabilities, etc. required are well defined to ensure sell through with all channels is frictionless, the customer receives a great experience
  • Working with the technical teams to ensure product requirements are successfully brought to life, are of the appropriate quality and delivered within budget too
  • Aligning with the testing and trials teams, then moving through to the go-to-market teams to ensure the product is well understood by front line sales and service teams too so they're able to successfully communicate the USP's to the end consumer
  • Working on the above for product evolutions too, ensuring all future products are well aligned to the future vision of the overall product/service, that they're of the appropriate quality and all legal, regulatory requirements are all met and delivering an excellent customer experience in the process.




Despite being a challenger brand within consumer mobile, overall they represent one of the UK's Superbrand firms and one of the best in their respective industry. This particular opportunity represents a much more green-field opportunity than most with the company being heavily invested in a growth and development phase, establishing themselves as well as what their offering is to be within the consumer mobile industry. So you can expect to be kept busy leading on innovative solutions designed to provide a competitive edge.


They operate with an agile competitor mindset. In recent years they've become known for disrupting the status-quo within the telecoms marketplace through a lot of innovation and heavy investment into new technologies.


They have a serious ambition to become recognised as truly customer centric, which in itself is driving a lot of positive change across the business.


They like change agents, it's fine if you see them as having opportunity to improve, so long as you're also the kind of person who is prepared to back your ideas up, roll up your sleeves up and become part of the solution to put things right. That kind of mindset and approach goes a long way within this business.
