A new opportunity has arisen to join one of the big brand TV platform providers as a Product Manager. In this role you will be supporting not only the immediate 0-18 month lifecycle, but also working closely with the Head of Function on the longer-term, 'future tv' vision piece too. Working on market, competitor analysis, innovation opportunities and emerging trends as well as technologies and start-ups which will impact the consumer TV market over the next 3-5 years, looking for and evaluating opportunities which could provide real leverage for the business.
The core of your role will focus around the product lifecycle related to the set-top box experience of a premium TV service provider. This will include managing the product feature backlog, looking at continuously improving the set-top box experience, ensuring it delivers what the consumer's evolving needs are (especially as new capabilities emerge), and also working on the company's next-generation set-top box and digital app too.
Your remit will include an aspect of infrastructure; understanding how content comes into the business and how it then gets distributed across the various channels to the consumer. So will include some technical understanding around things like encoding - but this is something you will become familiar with quickly in the role.
Some projects within this business unit can be smaller and less defined, as such you will take on the role of Project Manager too - so will hold responsibility for the end-to-end from creation of the requirements based on the product feature backlog, then bringing all stakeholders together from across TV, platform, commercial, marketing, technology, finance and customer service teams to ensure it's delivered on time and to budget. Then setting up the measurement framework to understand how the new feature/experience/capability is being used and working for the end consumer to ensure it successfully achieves what was originally set out.
With this opportunity you will be joining a business that's spending heavily on the future of their TV offering. They're still a relative newcomer to the digital and paid TV market, so their operation is agile and fast-paced, with lots to do and plenty of scope for improvements. Joining at this stage of their journey will see you having a strong voice in the development of their next-gen TV service offering which is currently in the planning stage.
In recent years they've become known for disrupting the status-quo within the various markets they play in, investing heavily in digital innovation and 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.
