We’re on the lookout for a Product Manager
As part of the Platform team, you will need the gravitas and ability to effectively communicate with a wide range of internal and external stakeholders, as the face and voice of Sero. You will also need to manage the requirements and QA for existing and evolving technology products.
What we’re after
We want team players who’ll integrate well, pitch in to help others as needed, and make being at work at least something approaching fun from time to time. We’re a small but growing business, and you’ll need to be self-motivated, completely trustworthy and able to manage your own delivery to hit milestones. You’ll be flying the flag for us to partners, so being personable and a good communicator will be important. Being a bit “eco” definitely isn’t going to hurt either!
What we’ll be asking you to do
You will be responsible for development and delivery of end to end IT solutions that enable Sero to manage customer interactions and to manage the development of new tooling portfolios supporting carbon neutral developments, energy optimisation and predictive modelling. Your responsibilities will include;
- Engaging with internal and external stakeholders to outline the strategic product roadmap.
- Understanding the customer needs and clearly documenting the objectives and user stories.
- Engaging with IT technology Suppliers on new or existing solutions.
- Assuming responsibility for release approval including QA
- Developing and providing cost estimates and timelines
What about skills & qualifications?
- At least 12 months experience as a UK product manager.
- Experience of shaping portfolios, roadmaps, cost estimates, budget planning, and delivery of whole end to end IT platforms
- Highly developed oral and written communication skills
- Experience of supplier relationship management
- Technically minded, preferably with an IT university degree, or Agile CPM certification

Who are we?
Sero was founded to make a connection between homes and energy, and to use technology to make both these easier and smarter together. We do this to save our customers money and to save them time, but we also do it to save our planet. To tackle the Climate Emergency, we provide clever energy services that automatically reduces the carbon footprint of the homes we run. To do this, we work with other home builders and landlords to help them understand what to do with their buildings to achieve this. We also try and lead by example, so through our sister company Sero Homes we build true zero carbon homes, set in ecologically vibrant spaces and places (there’s a and Biodiversity Crisis too!), so that our homes help to build a community.
If you think we’re a match, please get in touch! We’d like a C.V., but send it with a covering note too please that tells us why you’d be our perfect fit for our team. Your note can be a letter, email, video snippet, go crazy, give us a little bit of your character…
