About Us

Patchwork is an award-winning digital healthcare solution that was built by doctors, for doctors. We are a public-private partnership with Chelsea & Westminster NHS Trust, are co-owned by The British Medical Journal and work with over a dozen UK NHS Trusts.

Patchwork is revolutionising flexible working in the NHS. We are helping NHS organisations save millions (and counting) by better managing their workforce, permanent and temporary. We help connect them to an increasing number of flexible temporary workers, remove reliance and spending on locum agencies, and improving the general experience of flexible working.

Ultimately, through our end-to-end workforce management offering, we are putting flexibility and humanity at the heart of staffing systems to create better outcomes for patients, workers, and managers.

Your Mission

As a Product Manager within our Consumer team, you will be the key driving force, moving Patchwork’s exciting, new products forward. You’ll collaborate with cross-functional peers and stakeholders to define problems via product discovery and shipping solutions. You’ll be a strong advocate for user research, and scoping—practicing, socialising, and facilitating product thinking throughout the entire organisation.

This role will specifically own our consumer-facing products. We have both a worker app and website where clinicians apply for shifts, submit timesheets, get paid & request leave to name a few.

You will get the opportunity to work with the Product, Engineering, Design, and Ops teams to drive the agile development of our key, new product line for 2021.

Embed yourself in a cross-functional team alongside design, engineering, and business stakeholders to help clarify problems and iteratively explore solutions.

Support the Head of Product to shape the product vision, strategy and roadmap for the product line.

Work collaboratively to define both long-term strategy and short-term tactics to improve Patchwork, both within your own team and across the product function.

Carry out usability testing and user experience research to falsify assumptions and validate solutions, working closely with Design and internal subject matter experts.

Drive a range of diverse continuous discovery efforts with customers and external partners.

You have a consistent track record of product execution and delivery, shipping new features efficiently and with measurable success

You have Product Management experience with B2C products and understand marketplace dynamics.
