About Brightpearl

We’re an award-winning tech business, recently named Top UK SaaS Company to work for and our UK HQ is located in Bristol - named top city to live!

Brightpearl is the retail operations platform for cool brands and retailers. We help over 1,400 omnichannel businesses selling finished goods, trading $2.5m-$100m a year in 53 countries to streamline their back-office operations. We delight our customers by getting them up and running with Brightpearl in less than 100 days - that’s twice as fast as our competitors, and empowering them to make smart decisions to grow efficiently.

About the role

At the heart of our business, the role of product management covers a diverse list of activities and events at Brightpearl. As a Product Manager, you’ll be tasked with the balancing act of facilitating others, continuously improving existing processes and technology, and influencing the evolution of your assigned Product, that is scalable and aligned with Brightpearl Strategy.

This role will require a product manager who is tech-savvy, who can talk code, APIs and SDKs with developers, while explaining these technical aspects in a way that non-technical stakeholders can understand. This role will be embedded within our Platform development team, which exists to enable other development teams and products with frameworks and tools, and also to look after our infrastructure. It is an engineering focussed team, though key to our partner's strategy in 2022 as we deliver SDKs and continue to grow our customer base.


Portfolio ownership

As Product Manager for Brightpearl’s Platform domain, you’ll have ownership and responsibility of;

  • Defining the strategy, ICP (ideal customer profile) and roadmap for your product, using customers, colleagues and the competitive market to guide and validate their decisions in line with the Company Strategy and metrics
  • Working with the assigned technical lead and agile development team to deliver the roadmap projects at quality, on time and within budget, and play the role of scrum product owner within the team

You will have the opportunity to work cross functionally, learning from other experts in the company.

  • Deliver updates to other departments as required by the product operating calendar
  • Work in conjunction with product marketing to deliver one-to-many updates to customers and partners
  • Be the go-to expert for any questions about or asks of your Product
  • Drive the execution and success of the product(s) by continuously guiding the development team and leading cross-departmental go to market release plans

Supporting other teams

As subject matter experts, Product Managers are called upon to help other teams, such as handling support escalations, exploring strategic partnerships, or prospect demonstrations. Product Managers should come to each engagement with a mindset of “how do I enable others in the future?”, and contribute to tools such as our LMS to upskill others.
