The Role – Head of Product
The last year has been a transformative period for the topic of mental health. We've all gone on our own wellbeing journeys - for many, it has been a time of grief, loneliness, and anxiety while for others, it has been an opportunity for reflection and growth. If there is a silver lining from the last year it’s that the appreciation, education, and investment in mental health and wellbeing has been accelerated.
As a company, we have always believed that the positioning, narrative, and imagery around mental health is misrepresented. If we are going to truly break the stigma and make a lasting impact in the workplace and across broader society we need to create an experience that repositions mental health as something we all nurture on a daily basis.
We have spent the last 5 years creating the Unmind experience as a small UK startup. We are now ready to take that to the next level, making it best in class, a truly market-leading B2B experience with a B2C calibre. This is where you come in, we are looking for someone who understands the power of digital products in transforming people’s habits and who is energised to change the relationship people have, around the world, with the topic of mental health.
As the Head of Product, you will be responsible for leading an initial team of 7+ product managers and growing it to 15+ over the course of 2022, including leadership roles within the team.
You will demonstrate the product culture at Unmind through:
- Championing the value of a user-centred approach to unearth their needs and systematically evolve our product to achieve a future where everyone is able to understand and nurture their mental health on a daily basis
- Embracing the uniqueness of the human race and champion accessibility for all
- Promoting a learning mindset and not only be constantly ensuring Unmind is at the forefront of the latest product development thinking, but also constantly learning about its users & customers through continuous discovery and delivery
- Cultivating an environment of diversity, transparency and trust, where your team can feel empowered to share ideas, be challenged, and fulfil their potential
Skills and Experience
We firmly believe that no one is the finished article and that there should be learning in every role you do. However, some experience in the following is important for the role.
We're looking for someone who has:
- A successful track record as a Product Leader in a fast-growth company, leading product managers, who work in cross-functional empowered product teams
- A demonstrable talent for creating consumer-grade digital B2C experiences
- A customer-centric mindset, that is able to connect the dots between vision, strategy and business outcomes to customer success
