Job Teaser

As our Product Lead, your primary responsibility will be to guide and develop a group of product managers (PMs) and associate product managers. To do so you’ll need to have "been there, done that", with multiple years of experience as a PM, consistently delivering great results under complex situations. In addition to excelling as a Product Lead, you should enjoy guiding and developing others, always taking a practical, hands-on approach.

In this position, you’ll play a pivotal role in the creation and definition of the online and in-product experiences related to customer support and the underlying channel tools, and services needed to power such experiences all the while collaborating closely with the CRM platform team. You will guide the vision for the next evolution of support experiences at SumUp. You will closely work with PMs who define the experiences that route customers to support, allow customers to self-serve or interact with support, view their support history, and the data services that other teams can use to make support an integrated experience. You will be key in identifying opportunities to leverage new technologies such as automation, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to help us deliver personalised service at scale. You will interact with key operations stakeholders, product designers, developers (front-end, back-end, mobile), product managers, subject matter experts and other stakeholders who all contribute in creating an experience that is effortless for both our merchants and agents.

  • Understand our merchants deeply by carrying out extensive research to identify product improvement needs or new product launches

  • Develop and coach a diverse group of Product Managers, supporting them in defining and achieving milestones on their career path

  • Understand the cross-squad impact of our products and systems, addressing dependencies and ensuring product consistency

  • Develop together with Product Managers and Engineering a holistic roadmap for SumUp’s merchant success initiatives, defining success metrics and KPIs aimed at delivering the best possible experience to merchants

  • Ensure a flow of communication in all directions

  • Contribute to our product community at SumUp, sharing knowledge, discussing best practices and continuously improving our overall product practices and skills
