Technical Product Manager, Data Innovation Lab

We are a fast-growing consulting and data science company dedicated to improving healthcare and supporting the adoption of innovation.

Our Data Innovation Lab helps clients solve some of the biggest challenges in healthcare today by designing creative solutions, building meaningful products and developing powerful models that improve outcomes for both patients and entire communities.

We are proud of our work and the recognition we have received. We won this year’s Health Service Journal (HSJ) Partnership Awards for Best Healthcare Analytics Project for the NHS, marking our fourth consecutive year as a shortlisted finalist. We were also Highly Commended at last year’s MCA Awards for Change and Transformation in the Public Sector.

Our Data Innovation Lab team is looking to add a Product Manager to direct the design, development, launch and maintenance of a small portfolio of interactive tools and products for our healthcare clients across both public and private sectors

The Senior Technical Product Manager will partner with our data scientists, data engineers and software developers to explore, establish and champion tools that help healthcare clients gain insights to make effective decisions. As a strong communicator, this person will oversee engagement with clients, users and stakeholders, leading product strategy, feature prioritisation and deployment operations.

This PM must thrive in an agile development environment and be comfortable navigating stand-ups, sprint planning sessions and retrospectives. They will draw upon CF’s deep healthcare expertise and identify ways to transform data available through the NHS and Life Sciences sectors into compelling deliverables that can lead to strong and sustainable commercial opportunities.
