About the business unit


Mott MacDonald’s support services are the driving force behind our organisation enabling us to run efficiently and effectively. The team works collaboratively to offer specialist advice, best practice and technology to all areas of our business specifically designed for our global reach.

Overview of role

Mott MacDonald is a diverse £2 billion employee-owned, engineering and development consultancy serving the public and private sector around the world through a social purpose. With digital innovation and excellence also a core part of the company purpose, we are known for our digital portfolio across the AEC sector. We constantly strive to be at the forefront of the intersection between technology and engineering. Are you ready to shape the future? As a Senior Product Manager at Mott MacDonald, you’ll be at the forefront of our digital transformation journey. Your role won’t just be about managing products; it’s about driving outcomes, creating impact, and empowering change. Here’s why this opportunity is a game-changer:


1. Strategic Influence: You won’t be a cog in the wheel; you’ll be the navigator. Your decisions will shape our product management capability, connecting innovation to real-world results. Whether it’s our industry-leading Moata platform, our AI initiatives, or our Digital Portal, you’ll be the architect of progress as part of a talented product trio.
2. Cross-Functional Collaboration: Picture this: you’re collaborating with AEC domain experts, designers, software developers, and data scientists. Together, you’ll create magic. Your ideas won’t be siloed; they’ll be amplified by diverse minds. We value ambition, equal opportunities, and purpose-driven work. You’ll thrive in an environment where collaboration isn’t just a buzzword; it’s our DNA.

AI powered: In our AI-driven ecosystem, you’ll be the bridge between human ingenuity and machine intelligence. While AI adoption is the norm, your role won’t be about algorithms and code—it’ll be about understanding customer needs, enhancing user experiences, and strategically leveraging AI insights. You’ll weave AI seamlessly into our products, making them smarter, more intuitive, and commercially viable. Welcome to the future of the AEC sector! 🚀

Key Responsibilities:
1. Product Strategy and Vision:

  • Define and communicate the product vision aligned with broader organizational goals.
  • Develop product roadmaps that balance customer needs, business objectives, and technical feasibility.
  • Incorporate feedback from customers and stakeholders into the product strategy.

2. Product Development and Execution:

  • Lead end-to-end product development, from concept to delivery.
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams (engineering, design, domain, marketing) to ensure successful execution.

3. Market Research and Insights:

  • Conduct market research to identify trends, customer pain points, and competitive landscape.
  • Gather insights from customers, business development teams, and industry experts.

  • Coach and support the wider team to achieve their product goals.
  • Contribute to and be part of the continuous evolution of our product management function.

AI Integration: In our AI-driven environment, you’ll collaborate with data scientists and engineers to infuse AI capabilities into our products. While AI adoption is the norm, your role as a Senior Product Manager will be to ensure that AI solutions align with customer needs and enhance our business value proposition. You’ll strategically leverage AI insights without making it the central focus, creating innovative, user-centric, and commercially viable products.
