Are you passionate about taking the lead of product development processes and initiatives? Do you want to help ensuring that we keep on top of the digital transformation, and keep being able to guide our customers in order for them to lead the media industry? Then you are just the person we are looking for!

Guided by a mission to further strengthen our products’ relevance in the market, we are looking for a strong, commercial minded Product Manager to join our team. In close collaboration with your colleagues from Sales, Marketing; Business Intelligence and Development, you will acquire a central role in conceptualizing the future concepts and products, which will set the stage for our strategic direction.

Visiolink is a market leading company within digital publishing. Our customers are leading European Media companies within the newspaper and magazine industry. As Product Manager at Visiolink, you will get an exciting and challenging job within a consolidated and continuously growing company. Where one of our primary objectives is to help developing our customers’ digital business models. We offer a strong professional business environment, where we are all highly committed to creating the very best solutions that fit both our customers’ current needs and address future challenges.

 

About the position

You will get plenty of opportunity to help shape your own position and bring your experiences and competencies into play. However, central tasks and areas of responsibilities are:

  • Analysing and identifying market needs, and utilise this knowledge to develop and conceptualise strong product launches
  • Taking responsibility of our innovation model – Stage-Gate – which we use to validate the development of future products and features
  • Continuously monitoring market developments and competitors
  • Participating in customer meetings, webinars, workshops, and events to enhance valuable dialogues with our customers, which can help identify product needs and challenges
  • Planning of practical product launches in close collaboration with your colleagues in Marketing
  • Securing a smooth collaboration with our technical Product Owner, to ensure the commercial value of the product is not lost during the development process
  • Reporting on product related KPIs

About you

Your personality and motivation are key to succeed in the role as Product Manager. Therefore, it is important that you can recognize yourself in the following:

  • You have a commercial mindset and can identify a potential product’s ability to generate value for end-users, customers, and for Visiolink as the supplier
  • Our customers’ needs are often very diverse, and you understand how to handle this challenge in practice and turn these needs into clear, conceptualised, and value-generating products
  • You have an analytical approach towards your tasks and the ability to distinguish between spontaneous ideas and ideas built on basic needs, which hold strategic value
  • You are driven by the desire to see our customers succeed and achieve commercial success by means of our products
  • You have a natural curiosity about the latest trends and the end-users’ media consumption patterns, and a desire to accommodate these with relevant products
  • You have a background from the media industry or from a software provider within the media industry – not a requirement but an advantage
  • You can juggle more things at a time and make sure internal and external stakeholders are provided the right information at the right time
  • You have the guts to make the necessary decisions regarding our product strategy and supporting processes, which will secure greater knowledge about the product, market, competitors, customers, and end-users

The nature of your educational background is not pivotal. What matters, is your drive and ability to utilise your competencies in the best way possible to support the needs of the media industry.

You will become part of a dynamic working environment and a team of experienced and driven colleagues. Your opinion and inputs are valued, and you will be given the opportunity to set your mark on the way we operate at Visiolink. You do not need to have a professional level of technical knowledge but having so, will give you an advantage when dialoguing with both developers and editors on the customer side. You will have the support of experts throughout the different divisions of Visiolink and you will experience a strong willingness from your colleagues to help you succeed.
