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

We are on a mission to make car changing simpler for everyone and are now building out a product team to help deliver on this promise across our platform.

Reporting into our Director of Product, you will play a leading role in helping develop our product strategy to offer a better and more seamless car changing experience to our millions of customers.

You will also be charged with helping Carwow accelerate our marketing capability - including the implementation of marketing tech to help improve the profitable acquisition of new customers and improved monetisation of existing customers.

What you’ll be doing

  • Utilise relevant customer insight and competitor analysis to identify opportunities and threats- working closely with our inhouse research team.
  • Create an environment that allows the team to get the best out of all the people in their squad by helping provide wider context, giving clarity on goals, supporting and setting processes for the team to collaborate effectively.
  • Use data to generate actionable insights, to leverage those insights to achieve goals set for the product, and to connect those quantified goals to meaningful outcomes for the business.
  • Build empathy with our customers and leverage feedback in the form of interviews, conversations, usability tests, surveys, and other forms of research to understand how users engage with the product, make better decisions, and drive meaningful outcomes for the business.
  • Work closely with the broader Customer and Marketing team to get the right input, their ideas and ensure that they have the right information to represent the product team into their areas/functions.

What you’ll need

  • Proven experience as a Product Manager (3-5 years)
  • You are a strategic thinker, being able to think both top down and bottom up.
  • Ideally, you would have experience working in high paced environments
  • Excellent communication and presentation skills, whether to the tech team, to other stakeholders or to our leadership team. Effective in distilling complex solutions into bite-sized pieces when speaking and writing
  • Excel at managing stakeholders, whilst also being confident in voicing your own opinions and challenging others.
  • Be highly analytical and accustomed to using complex data to make decisions - when you’re presented with data, analysis should be a reflex.
  • Be a great prioritiser, not afraid to say no.
  • Great attitude, keen to learn and an excitement to build something you can be proud of

Working here

So, what does Carwow look like under the hood?

Bonding as a team is important to us - whether we're rocking the Carwow Olympics worldwide, playing drag bingo for Pride Month, taking part in beach clean-ups or rallying on the Padel court, there’s always something to bring us together.

The FlexScore® is the result of a rigorous 2-step verification of a company’s flexibility

First we assess the flexibility options carwow provides and then we anonymously survey a statistically significant proportion of their employees to make sure carwow is as flexible as they say they are. Our assessment is based on the six key elements of flexibility: location, hours, autonomy, benefits, role modelling and work-life balance.

We ask the hard questions so you don’t have to.
