What’s the job?

We are now looking for an experienced Product Manager to join our Product team and help us achieve our mission to inspire people to connect with each other more often and in more meaningful ways.

Reporting into the Senior Product Manager, and joining our close-knit Tech team, you will work cross-functionally with stakeholders across the business to get the best possible outcome for our product, driving the full lifecycle from concept and discovery through to prioritisation, delivery and measurement pre/post-launch.
