At AND, we accelerate the development of digital capabilities. In practice, that means helping ambitious leaders and organisations build the teams, products, processes and even operational structures they need to close the digital skills gap within their organisation today, so that they thrive tomorrow.

Clients rely on our experience, agility and craft skills across tech and business strategy, software development and product management to address some of the toughest challenges facing their businesses.

We bring aboard thinkers, tinkerers, passionate software craftspeople and inspiring technologists to help us solve these challenges. Together, we’re united by a sense of pragmatism, purpose and a deeply-held belief that digital products and technology alone won’t transform a business or save the world: it’s the people that count.

As a Product Lead, you’ll help clients accelerate their digital journey through the power of product management. As a result, you will need to be able to:

  • Understand the many aspects of product management - ideation, discovery, competitor analysis, road mapping, strategy, new product launch and product innovation.

  • Be responsible for prioritisation decisions to ensure delivery of the most significant business value.

  • Build and maintain motivated PO communities within clients’ organisations to support delivery.

  • Help product analysts and owners to build the product strategy and vision - engaging with business stakeholders and supporting the conversation on why the transition to product management.

  • Introduce new and emerging product initiatives to AND’s clients.

  • Extensive knowledge of product management principles and evidence of applying your knowledge with practical hands-on experience of leading scrum teams.

  • Ability to lead a well organised and empowered team with a fun, friendly and positive attitude.

  • Capability to think strategically, establishing a clear direction and implementing plans to deliver within a tech environment.

  • Good knowledge of digital delivery - particularly through product, technology and people change.

  • Ability to help stakeholders to understand the value of product management and related decisions.

  • An understanding of the power of A/B testing, user testing and analysis of results using analytics tools such as Google Analytics, Optimizely and Monetate.

  • Appreciation for client work and/or consulting.

  • As an added bonus, you may be a well-established figure in your field; perhaps you are a recognised conference speaker or tech blogger/writer, are an industry expert in a specialist field, or have contributed to open source projects or charitable technical projects (like TuringLabs, etc.)

From the work we deliver, to the way we serve and support our people, we work hard to ensure that there’s nowhere quite like AND. But joining a company is a two-way street: the fit has to work on both sides. So before you apply, here’s three key things to understand about us:

  • We’re built for people - like, real humans. Not ‘resources’ or ‘staff’. That means happiness and wellbeing really do matter to us, and we hate unnecessary hierarchy and bureaucracy.

  • There’s no well-trodden path ahead: AND is growing fast and forging a new trail. That’s exciting, and gives us all the autonomy and opportunity we love - but bear in mind it also demands focus, patience and resilience.

  • Diversity is a priority. After all, to build great products that a wide variety of different people love to use, we need a wide variety of people to help us build them. So diversity is more than a policy or a word: it’s business critical for us.
