people.io is an award-winning startup that's giving people ownership of their data. Here's a short intro to our product and vision from the founder ^

The Product Manager Role is a critical role within people.io, and will work directly with the CEO and CTO to create a clear product strategy that fits the business strategy, and execute it.

Having only released our UK consumer app from beta in February last year, we’ve already hit 160,000 users, driven industry leading user engagement metrics and even announced a co-branded app called "o2 Get" which is now available to Telefonica's 44m customers in Germany.

Recent news:

  • #1 iTunes UK trending app (July ‘17)
  • #4 iTunes UK Lifestyle app (July ‘17)
  • Launched “o2 Get, powered by people.io” with Telefónica Deutschland
  • Recognised as NASDAQ’s Rising Star of 2016
  • Marketing Week, Top 100 Disruptive brand

This is an exciting opportunity to be at the centre of a world changing startup as we scale from a successful UK and German launch, to multiple international markets and partnerships alongside some of the most recognised brands in the world.

Recognised in 2017 as NASDAQ Rising Star and Marketing Week 100 Disruptive Brands, we’ve received investment from some of Europe’s most successful entrepreneurs, including Thomas Höegh (founder of LoveFilm / Arts Alliance), Mark Davis (co-founder of Betfair) and Nick Robertson (founder of ASOS) in addition to corporate backing from Founders Factory (Brent Hoberman & Henry Lane-Fox) and Wayra Deutschland (Telefónica Open Future).

This will include working directly with customers to understand requirements and potential opportunities, as well as helping with pre-sales opportunities to demonstrate and describe our products. The Product Manager will also be responsible for working directly with the engineering team and Product Owner to own creation of epics and stories, and determine priority. The role will entail line management of Junior Product Owners initially, but has the potential to grow into a Head of Product Management over time.
