Product Director

London, England, United Kingdom · Product


Novoda is a Digital Product Agency formed of 50+ thinkers, builders and creators, putting our curiosity to work for clients of all shapes and sizes from our offices dotted around Europe. Right now we focus on developing digital products for mobile, though we're investing in the skills needed to do great work on the platforms of the future too.

As our clients needs get broader and more sophisticated, we’re looking for a Product Director to join our Leadership team and put their passion, skills and experience to work on all things product related at novoda. From product strategy, to early-stage idea validation, to the nuts and bolts of building great products fast. You’ll help us to up our game across the board.

Here’s how you can help us:

  1. Developing our proposition
    You’ll help us to develop a consistent and current practice for all things Product- related. You’ll be our domain expert in your field for the business and play a key role in developing our core proposition when it comes to product. Starting by helping us grow in the areas of strategy and early-stage idea validation.
  2. Supporting our clients
    You’ll work with our Client Services team to provide the best experience possible for lead members of our client teams. From helping them improve their strategy, to upskilling on new practices and tools, to finding new ways for us to help them do more and go further.
  3. Working with our project teams
    You’ll work with Design, Engineering and Coaching Heads to ensure all project teams are set up for success, and the teams delivering on those projects feel supported and equipped to deliver with confidence and impact.
  4. Growing the product team
    Right now our Product team is pretty small relative to our Engineering and Design teams and we plan to change that. You'll help us to grow a diverse and engaged team, building the crew that’ll take our Product team confidently into the future.
  5. Helping us to win great clients
    You’ll play a central part in helping us to convince great brands to bring their most fascinating projects to novoda.
  6. Representing novoda
    You’ll take the lead in telling novoda’s story to the outside world, acting as a public speaker in ways that builds novoda’s profile in the product community. You’ll network actively in our key areas of interest and expertise too.


Who we're looking for

If you think you’ve got something valuable to offer novoda, then please get in touch and tell us in your own words how you could make an impact as part of our team. In the meantime, here are some things we think could be useful for you to demonstrate when you get in touch:

  1. Are you a product veteran?
    You’ve got at least 5 years experience in a product-related role, with some of that time spent within an agency or consultancy environment. Ideally you’ll have been through the mill of defining, launching and scaling a well-loved and in demand mobile-first product.
  2. Are you all about your team?
    You can demonstrate your experience in building and leading teams of highly-skilled, capable people without reliance on formal authority. You know that supporting a team requires active listening and a coaching mindset. Spending time with people gives you energy.
  3. Can you help us win great work?
    You can share examples of when you’ve helped to win significant new business for your employer and the strategies that drove those wins. You’re willing to put in the work to get the projects we can be proud to work on.
  4. Are you curious and creative?
    You never stop learning, asking questions and sharing your insights and experiences, both good and bad.

This role can be based in either London or Berlin.

German language skills would be a definite bonus, if you choose to work from within our Berlin team.
