Job Description

About Carwow

We’re Carwow. The car-changing experts for life-changing moments. Whether buying, selling, or (car) window shopping, we aim to give people total confidence in their choice.

We kicked off our journey as the ultimate matchmaker for car reviews, helping everyone pick their perfect ride. But we soon realised this wasn’t the destination - it was just the first leg. Why stop there when we could also help them get a great price?

So we decided we wanted to revolutionise selling cars, just like we did with buying them. That's when we introduced our game-changing 'sell my car' product.

Today, our dedicated team of over 350 experts across the UK, Germany, Spain and Portugal look after over 12 million active users (and an ‘excellent’ Trustpilot rating).

And we’ve got plenty left in the tank.


About the role

Are you an experienced Product Manager eager to contribute your expertise to a dynamic team dedicated to advancing products within our data function? We are actively seeking a candidate with prior experience in data product management.

As a Product Manager at carwow, your proactive decision making style will empower teams to work swiftly, even in the face of ambiguity, fostering clarity in decision making to maintain pace and drive continuous improvement.

In your first 6 months, take charge of the analytical data platform, employing a product centric approach to delivery. You will focus on maintaining the vision and roadmap, ensuring the creation of value from our data assets for both internal and external stakeholders.

  • Develop and maintain a product roadmap outlining the evolution of data products, prioritising features based on business value, impact, and feasibility.

  • Champion Data Democratisation: Drive the successful adoption of data tools and technologies by stakeholders, from concept to implementation.
  • Challenge existing working methods, identifying opportunities for innovation and ensuring optimal ROI in our data platform developments.

Requirements
