The Dennis Digital Product team has responsibility for delivery of best in class product across our wide portfolio of digital properties. The award-winning product team are expanding due to ambitious plans and targets across our flagship brands. This role is specifically focused on delivering our reader revenue strategy across key brands such as The Week. You’ll join an established team and drive key areas such as product offering, acquisition, conversion and retention.
Working closely with the UX team you will ensure a high standard of UX is maintained with the product/feature areas that you manage. You’ll be customer focused always and define and own the product vision and strategy for your area, realising them through your product roadmap.
You’ll use a data-driven approach to identify opportunities and frame the problems to be solved, you’ll also use data to measure the success work that has been carried out - optimising where it makes sense.
You’ll identify opportunities for future developments based on key market trends and prioritise and maximise business value from all product developments by understanding user behaviour and client needs.
Working effectively with various business units to deliver an agreed product roadmap including marketing, BI, management and engineering you’ll create epics & user stories to deliver the product vision. You’ll create robust business cases which lay out clear, measurable benefits in line with Dennis’ strategic objectives and brand ambitions, managing the full life cycle of the assigned products whilst maintaining up-to-date working knowledge of technology/online solutions and developments in the UK and globally.
You will be expected to constantly maintain a pipeline of potential product enhancements which most suitably meet relevant commercial needs and which are prioritised appropriately according to their profitability, ease of implementation and strategic importance.
By now it should be clear that the role needs excellent communication skills to ensure stakeholders and the wider business understand the vision and strategy and the impact it is having on our business goals. Experience in the publishing/media space is essential as is proven experience of working with a subscription offering.
You’ll have a strong aptitude for technology and how a feature could be implemented and use that knowledge to help prioritise features. Being an articulate and clear communicator you will have the ability to translate complex problems and solutions between engineering and business stakeholders, you’ll ideally be degree qualified and preferably have a formal qualification in Product Management, Marketing or other business/technology related discipline.
You’re experienced at working with development teams using agile methodologies, you have a track record of delivery in a fast-paced, demanding environment and experience of user interface & workflow design for business systems.
You will also need working knowledge of application & system integration with external partners, an ability to work well in a cross-functional environment with multiple stakeholders and the ability to handle multiple projects simultaneously and meet variable deadlines, whilst working autonomously to define own workload.
At Dennis, we’re dedicated to creating brands that people want to work with, and a culture that people want to work in. We’re unique, and so are you. You’ll enjoy a host of benefits and perks when you join us, on top of a satisfying salary. And that’s not all:
