Product Manager – Marketplace

Who are we?

At Bridebook we know that your wedding is one of the most important days of your life but planning it can be stressful, emotional and sometimes overwhelming. How much should you spend? What does the perfect venue look like? Is the food going to be good? What am I going to wear?! Our mission is to bring wedding planning into the modern age, using technology to make it as stress-free and rewarding as it should be.

2 out of 3 couples in the UK use Bridebook to plan their perfect wedding and we have successfully helped over 1 million people create a memorable and special day. With UK growth accelerating we are looking internationally and aim to roll out Bridebook into Europe and the US over the next few years.

Bridebook has been featured as Apple’s #1 App, holds 4000 5* reviews and gains regular coverage across National and International media including the Evening Standard, New York Times and BBC. We are backed by some of the smartest investors out there and headquartered in the heart of Notting Hill.

Who are we looking for?

We’re looking for a talented product manager to lead one of our cross-functional squad focused on marketplace monetisation. We want an empathetic, user-focused PM who will get under the skin of our customers, learn what their biggest challenges are and come up with delightful ways of meeting them. You should be able to balance these user needs with Bridebook’s commercial ambitions and be comfortable prioritising across multiple stakeholder groups. We expect you to have experienced the full product cycle from opportunity definition through research & prototyping, release and iteration. You should be ready to hit the ground running from Day 1.

As the Product Manager, you will be in charge of defining your squad’s strategy, metrics and tactics – working with senior management to ensure they align with Bridebooks strategic objectives. You should be experienced in setting smart goals, measuring performance and critically appraising product features.

About you
