Head of Product (Studio)

Opportunity 

Podimo is looking to enhance the experience and value for users and reward creators as well as bringing them both closer together with regards to connectivity.

The Studio platform will be the key for content creators to build their stories and expand their audiences. Studio will provide tools and analytics for podcasters everywhere, including real-time statistics based on their audience demographics, listening habits, episode performance and payouts. These invaluable analytics, as well as marketing tools that include a sharing scheduler for promotional posts, will help creators transform their social media followings into Podimo members. 

Reporting into the newly appointed VP Product Pedro Pereira, you will build and lead the team responsible for Podimo’s back end product, playing an influential role in the tool kit used by creators, identifying innovative add ons to empower and produce a first-class audio experience.

Challenges for this role will include staying ahead of the market, working with the technology team in Vilnius and building a team whilst simultaneously building the product. Podimo’s initial product was created in 5 months and so you must be able to move quickly and be comfortable with ambiguity.

  • Keep abreast of product and sector trends and explore additional opportunities for product innovation to ensure a best in class experience.

  • Contribute to the broader management team on strategy, opportunities for growth and ways to ensure Podimo is well-positioned to win.  

Key Requirements 

  • Significant experience building and creating a B2B business ecosystem or marketplace in a digital media environment. 

  • Strong experience as a product leader in the context of a B2B subscription platform and /or content creation/sharing platform in early-stage or scale-up business 

  • Deep analytical skills and demonstrable track record of a data-driven approach to product

  • Multiple platform/device experience

  • Experience managing, recruiting, coaching and developing highly skilled talent in product, design and user experience at all levels of an organisation

  • Ability to create and implement formal process regarding development, testing, security
