Head of Product

DrEd Online Doctor is looking to hire a passionate, experienced & multi-talented Head of Product. We are an ambitious, focused and fun team built of 35 doctors, developers, ops and marketers – all passionate about re-imagining the world’s health care so that it is radically simpler, faster and more affordable.

We’ve built an online medical platform that connects patients with doctors, providing safe, efficient and super-convenient care to over ¼ million patients in 5 countries and counting. With business expanding at pace, we need someone to lead our product function and to take our platform to the next level.

The right candidate will have the leadership skills & experience to build a high performing product function. She will have an extraordinary ability to think strategically and communicate at high level, but also to jump into the details of an interface, user journey or pricing model. But most importantly she’ll know that healthcare is crying out for product innovation, and want to play a key role in defining what the future of healthcare looks like.

The role:

We imagine the right candidate will be well-versed in what is expected of a Senior Product Manager / Product Owner in a high-growth agile development environment, so we’ll keep it light:

Lead the development of a product ‘function’ within DrEd

Lead our product strategy

Set the vision & define the roadmap for key existing products

Work with UX, customer service and clinical teams to build a deep understanding of our customers

Create a fast, iterative process for building and validating new product concepts

Lead and inspire a multi-disciplinary engineering, UX, business & design team to ship quality product increments fast

The right candidate might:

Be an experienced product manager, with a background in building great products (4+ years) and a breadth of technical, UX, interaction & business knowledge;

Believe in our mission to create radically better healthcare;

Be intellectually flexible and a quick learner, able to rapidly get to grips with the complexities of delivering great, innovative healthcare products;

Be highly experienced in enabling great decisions by articulating trade-offs clearly, highlighting where product focus matters and saying “no” a lot (politely);

Focus his/her efforts on the long-term and bash people on the head (gently) when they say “let’s do the desktop version first”;

This role will be based in our offices in Farringdon, London.

What you will get in return:

Being able to tell your children you helped shake-up the traditional model of healthcare, which is pretty cool;

Results that matter: We’re a startup, so our Product team will be expected to deliver strong revenue growth to support our ambitious expansion plans. But we deliver more than financial results – you’ll be helping patients access radically better healthcare services that our customers love.

Make your mark: As a business we have doubled our revenues every seven months since we started; however, we’re still young and small so you’ll be expected to build a world-class Product function within the business;

Work with outstanding people: We hire smart, creative people from 18 countries and counting. Our team includes a German Army medic, a quantum physicist, a doctor who helped Anthony Costa from Blue act how to be a burn victim (don’t ask) and a secret sewing bee who made several of Lady Gaga’s dresses! Our teams are largely self-organising and when we make decisions, data & logic prevail over seniority or hierarchy. Our office is friendly, with a lot of banter and fun. And we work flexibly.

Rewarding you: We offer a competitive salary, share options package, hardware of your choice and quick access to two of London’s best street food markets (we guarantee it’ll help you gain 2-4kg / year, although some of us are trying to buck the trend).
