We make software across a huge number of markets from Finance and Payroll to Hospitality. We’re one of the UK’s fastest growing SAAS businesses with a team of over 3,000 people. This position is in Health and Social care, where our products schedule and manage care for thousands of people across the UK and Ireland. We make the apps that live in the hands of carers delivering support and assistance to people in their own homes and every day we’re 45,000+ visits.

  • Develop and maintain a thorough understanding of customers’ business processes and requirements, becoming a product expert, able to do pre-sales demos of all of your products.
  • Work with the other Product Managers to understand the overall portfolio, to facilitate the overall product strategy, integration and cross sell.
  • Initiate and support engagement with clients through Special Interest Groups, User Groups and other events.
