Product Manager

London, England, United Kingdom · Product

Description

Trouva unites hundreds of the UK’s best independent boutiques with hundreds of thousands of people across the world who are looking for their next unique find. There are thousands of small independent boutiques spread out there in the physical world with beautiful product selections. Being able to discover and purchase these products is notoriously difficult. As TechCrunch put it we help store owners focus on what they do best; having beautiful offline experiences and selecting the right products for their customer base.

We’ve been around for about 2 years and have already been named one of the 5 fastest growing startups in the UK. Our goal is simple: To provide independent boutiques with the technology they need to thrive online and connect them with a community of people who desire beautiful products while doing so.

Our technology platform enables small business owners handle everything from inventory management to customer support & logistics. We provide customers with access to inventory that was not available before and create a seamless shopping experience when buying from independent boutiques.


What's the role?

As a Product Manager at Trouva, the challenges we work on are diverse: you’ll have the opportunity to work across products for our boutique community, like inventory management and order processing, innovate on internal tools to change the way we run our business, but also creating an alternative shopping experience for the Trouva customer.

Beautiful products are the result of identifying the needs of the end-user (shops, customers, team) and joining forces across the whole company to get there. You’re inspired by thinking and trying out new processes to align the team with what we’re trying to achieve and getting things done. Although you’ll sit within the Product team, you’ll work collaboratively with all areas of the business to achieve our goals. You’ll be responsible for running product squads, and you’ll have the freedom to define the processes you use to do that.

How do we work?

We believe in communicating effectively, thoroughly, empathetically and openly. We involve other people in what we’re doing early on to ensure we’re moving in the right direction and get feedback on our plans.

We want to be supported by the whole team, but ultimately be empowered to drive solutions as individuals. To gain this level of trust, we need to be confident that we gather the right requirements, we test to prove what we’ve built works and we test to ensure the result is robust. Furthermore, we document because we respect our future selves and team members.

We are open and transparent in the way we work. We expose our ideas and solutions early and follow the mantra that good is better than perfect. We invite others to challenge our ideas and help us achieve the best we can. This allows us be confident we deliver what is expected in the timeline we have proposed.

We’re one of the fastest growing companies in the world and we have wild ambitions. We thrive by delivering quality, impactful products at a fast pace, while improving how we work as a team.

Requirements

All in all, you are obsessed with building streamlined and transparent processes as well as creating world class products and extraordinary user experience. Show us that you strive for team efficiency and creating outstanding experience for your users and that our product is definitely inspiring you.
