Product Manager

Job description

Product Manager

Salary: £35-£40k per annum

Location: UK and some remote working (Head office London)

Who we are

TravelTime are a VC-backed B2B technology company and creators of the TravelTime API which allows users to search and analyse location data by travel time, instead of distance The breadth of use cases for TravelTime is enormous, but they can roughly be broken down into two categories:

  • SEARCH – these clients use TravelTime to sort and rank results by travel time when a user searches on their website (think property sites, job sites, hotel booking sites, dating apps etc). We are fundamentally changing how location search works, and already having a massive impact on our clients’ conversions.
  • ANALYTICS – these clients use TravelTime to beef up the capabilities of their internal analytics and business intelligence teams (think access to public services, office relocations, sales territories, and much more). Up to 80% of business intelligence data has a geographic element, and we help our clients make better decisions with this data.

You can see our technology at work in our demo app here, or on a live client site here.

We have 35 employees in the UK, Lithuania, Netherlands and Poland and we process over a billion requests per month for over 100 clients globally. We recently raised over £3 million in investment and now we’re looking to significantly expand our team.

Where we are travelling

Over the past 12 months TravelTime have built a number of integrations into other third-party technologies (ArcGIS, QGIS, and Alteryx) that allow our clients to use the power of TravelTime analytics right where they need it. We have also engaged with world leading technology partners, giving us a healthy sales forecast and user base for 2021.

Our aim is to make TravelTime available completely code-free to anyone who needs access, in whatever toolset they have available to them, and our new Product Manager will form a core part of this strategy.

Who you are

You are a smart, technically minded individual who is comfortable working in a fast-paced environment and can pick things up quickly. You can hit the ground running and be comfortable to take over complete ownership of our products, as well as planning, scoping, and delivering new integrations into other tools.

Experience working with and managing external stakeholders is important, and any time spent working with SaaS and/or APIs would be a plus, but if you’re driven and keen to build new skills then we want to hear from you regardless.

Some important personal attributes to us are:

  • Analytical approach – we need people with a problem-solver mindset who are always looking for better ways to do things in order to constantly surpass client expectations.
  • Self-starter – you’re highly motivated and comfortable taking the initiative on new endeavours.
  • Interest in tech – you don’t need to know how to code, but you will need to pick up an understanding of some of our technical capabilities on the job.
  • Ability to proactively manage your own work stream – you don’t wait around to be told what to do, you just work out what needs doing and crack on with it.
  • Superb communication skills, both written and verbal – you’ll need to be able to work with all different functions across the organisation, as well as external stakeholders, and effective communication will be key to this.

The TravelTime Culture - where work/life balance gets more than lip-service.

  • Flexitime - At TravelTime we strive to be an organisation who empower employees to be judged by their output, not their hours. We work on the basis of autonomy and trust. We set and measure objectives, both individual and team based, which we believe creates better output than working to rigid leave patterns.
  • People First - At TravelTime we focus on the People Agenda and are proud that our colleagues and managers support our staff to be the best that they can be with structured CPD’s and training budgets with Friday afternoons dedicated to personal development projects.
  • Share Options
  • Gym Membership/Self Improvement Budget
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Learning and Development Platform Licences
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Opportunity to work remotely with laptop and personal office equipment provided.
  • We still have offices available, for staff who prefer to work away from home.
  • Company-sponsored lunches, away days and celebrations with team gatherings in our Kaunas (Lithuania) office up to 3 times a year.
  • Dynamic, fun, entrepreneurial work environment – we aren’t afraid of hard work, but we are passionate about what we do.
