In this exciting new role, you will lead the development of digital products and features that inform, support and celebrate the charity sector and are used by hundreds of thousands of people every year.
Working with a range of stakeholder teams, you’ll define product visions based on business and user needs, developing project briefs and – in collaboration with digital agencies – delivery plans from discovery through to prototyping, testing, launch and beyond. You’ll support teams in the iterative optimisation of their websites, designing and delivering regular user research and testing, and managing a prioritised backlog of validated user stories. You’ll work as part of a collaborative and innovative team of digital content, marketing, development and data specialists, acting as an expert link to channel requirements, ensure a joined-up approach and ultimately deliver an excellent experience for users.
With a track record of managing multiple digital products and services in a fast-paced, Agile environment, you have an excellent understanding of current and emerging technologies and are confident communicating technical solutions and their benefits, limits and risks in accessible language to colleagues of all levels. You are solutions-focused, pragmatic and collaborative in your approach, with an excellent attention to detail. You also have a strong understanding of user experience design and research techniques, and demonstrable experience of using data and research to inform development and improve outcomes for users.
