Join us as we transform OS, deliver sustainable growth and empower our customers to meet their goals. You will play a critical role in helping OS to realise its vision: to be recognised as world leaders in geospatial services; creating location insight for positive impact.
We are looking for a Product Manager to develop commercially viable propositions for future enhancements to our public sector services.
This pivotal role, in a small but busy product team focused on our public sector users, will help shape and deliver the OS product roadmap to support our ambition as a digital business providing customers and partners with relevant, services, products, data and experiences. This P&I team is at the heart of our business transformation, helping us realise our ambition and purpose as a world-leading geospatial data organisation.
You will define and deliver data products, services and platforms to fulfil user-centric propositions, balancing market demand, technical feasibility and affordability with a focus on great user experience. To achieve this, you will employ user-centred design, continuous customer engagement and market analysis.
You will act as an authority on customer priorities throughout the delivery process, setting a vision for the product and driving relevant feedback to inform continuous improvement.
What we’re looking for
You will likely be a self-starting professional with an interest in technology and data. You may have a background in digital platforms, data, software and services, whether for start-ups, large organisations or within the public sector, and are looking to take on a new challenge.

To be the successful candidate you must demonstrate your track record against the following criteria in your application:
Strong experience of the techniques and methods of modern product discovery and product delivery.
Excellent skills in translating customer needs and market insight into a strategy and roadmap for future product development.
Excellent product ownership, with experience of championing your products and propositions internally and externally to ensure the execution of marketing communications, product-led investment programmes and sales engagement to achieve revenue targets.
Building and maintaining effective relationships with both operational and customer-facing colleagues and external partners to deliver product enhancements within expected service and revenue targets.
Good experience of user-centred design and driving engagement with key customers, partners and external stakeholders to ensure that product plans reflect a deep understanding of customer needs and market insights.
Commitment to relevant professional development and maintaining market understanding to continue to provide the appropriate support to the business.
Excellent data-driven decision making, using strong data interpretation and analytical skills.
Proven ability to engage with engineers, designers, and other stakeholders in a constructive and collaborative relationship.
