Senior Product Manager – Tenant ServicesSenior Product Manager (Fulfilment)
Who are we?
Let’s face it – finding a place to live in ranges from moderately painful to abysmal. Taking time off work for multiple viewings, competition for the best properties, and relentless admin fees make the process time consuming, lengthy and complicated. At Spotahome, we are on a mission to reinvent the property rental experience by making it transparent, instant, and exciting. Loved at last: Unreal estate.
We’re an online marketplace offering anyone, anywhere a comprehensive listing of apartments, rooms, studios, and student residences in the city of their choice. Our home checkers personally check thousands of rooms taking professional photos, HD video tours and designing floor plans, meaning potential tenants can find their new home 100% remotely.
We’re looking for a customer obsessed, results driven, and technically fearless Senior Product Manager to join us in changing the rental industry, from our new office at Chancery Lane, London.
Spotahome has raised a total of $72 million in capital. It is a private series B company backed by Kleiner Perkins, Passion Capital and Seaya Ventures as main investors. Investors also include Travis Kalanick (Uber), Drew Houston (Dropbox), Jeremy Stoppelman (Yelp), Arthur Kosten (Booking.com), amongst others. Since launching in 2014, we’ve grown to over 300 people. The rental market in Europe is worth $500B per year (https://bloom.bg/2dPsBDJ)… this is Day 1!
What would you be doing?

- You will be developing and improving the proposition to generate revenue, drive traffic to the site, make our Customers lives easy and deliver the ‘icing on the cake’ for their stand-out experience with us.
- You will have a dedicated engineering team within the Fulfilment Tribe to help make Tenant Services really special. You will also have UX and Data resources at your disposal.
- In regards to methodologies, think Agile, fast moving and lean.
What we value
- Visionary: Define a vision and strategy for the organization that leads the way into Tenant Services, using existing ideas purely as a starting point.
- Customer obsessed: Have a clear view on how best to gain insight into the rental challenge from the customers perspective. Get a real understanding of the challenges that they face, and make judgement calls to facilitate the best possible outcome for the Customer.
- Data driven: Lead analysis of complex data, questioning and hypothesising as you go in order to set priorities for yours and other teams.

- Ambiguity —> Clarity: You will be happy working with limited information, will love digging through the data for clues, and will be bold enough to move now with what you have, rather than waiting for a complete picture.
- Structured communicator: Transparency and communication will be key to taking the business with you on this journey. For you, communication is planned and structured with a purpose.
- Entrepreneurial mindset: This is a truly creative role but the route forward must be firmly based in sound business practice and a pragmatic approach to getting the product live. You don’t have to have an MBA, but the more varied the business experience you have to draw on the better.
