Product culture at Motorway

At Motorway, we’re strong believers in the value of empowered teams. As a Senior Product Manager, you’ll work with a cross-functional squad to determine the right things to build that deliver the most value to our customers and the business. You’ll do this using a dual-track discovery/delivery approach, rapidly evaluating opportunities through user research, data analysis and experimentation, and you’ll measure and communicate your impact based on outcomes rather than outputs.

As Senior Product Manager for our newly formed Payments team, you and your squad will own the technology, services and user flows that will allow our network of thousands of dealer partners to make instant payments to our customers. You’ll join our Product and Engineering team (currently 50 people and growing fast) and lead a cross-functional team covering UX, design, engineering and QA. You’ll work closely with senior stakeholders throughout the business, including the Head of Product and Chief Product Officer.

You will:

  • Develop a deep understanding of our customers and the market, using quantitative and qualitative discovery, testing and interview techniques to identify the biggest opportunities.
  • Work closely with your squad to scope, build and measure innovative solutions, generate learnings and continuously iterate.
  • Create and own an ambitious outcome-driven product roadmap for your team, aligned with our wider strategy and vision.
  • Prioritise ruthlessly, ensuring that the squad remains focussed on solving the most important problems and that you can communicate the rationale behind your decisions.
  • Work with our data team to define metrics for measuring success and regularly monitor and report on the performance of products and new features.
  • Lead stakeholder sessions to update on the squad’s progress, discovery/ experimentation findings and the impact of features shipped.
  • Champion the product and be responsible for communicating product launches both internally and externally.
  • Stay on top of technological and industry trends, highlighting how we can proactively stay ahead of the curve
