Digital Solutions Manager (Digital Product Manager)

We have been a leading figure in publishing for more than 500 years. We have always been a forward-looking organization, maximizing the technology for the day, but the digital revolution is bringing enormous change, fast. That same spirit of adventure and entrepreneurialism is critical to our future success. In a fast-changing publishing landscape, OUP welcomes the inquisitive, the inventive, and the ambitious; people who challenge the conventional, and pioneer the possible.

About the Role

This role provides an exciting opportunity to join the Digital Solution Managers Team within the English Language Teaching (ELT) Division.

You will develop and maintain roadmaps that underpin the digital product portfolio and ecosystem within the OUP English Language Teaching Division

As a Digital Solutions Manager you will:

  • Define an overarching strategy for the digital teaching and learning service you are responsible for.
  • Understand the market and competitive landscape in which you operate.
  • Be accountable for defining and maintaining product roadmaps which will be informed by market and customer problems.
  • Act as a Product Owner on a key project: Own, manage, and prioritise the product backlog, working closely with the delivery team to plan iterations, provide day-to-day input, and ensure that the delivery team has enough work to maintain velocity.

About You

The successful candidate will need to demonstrate the following:

  • Proven market-facing product management/product owner experience, ideally in an educational context
  • Proven success in defining successful product roadmaps
  • Proven ability to lead and influence cross-functional teams
  • Demonstrable understanding of platform data and usage analytics
  • Demonstrable understanding of product design and user experience
  • Ideally knowledge of education market, digital learning and EdTech landscape
  • Experience as a product owner is highly desirable

Behavioural Competencies

  • Build and manage successful, collaborative relationships with customers, commercial partners and colleagues
  • Communication, networking and influencing within a matrix structure: in particular to find a consensus and a way forward which balances needs
  • Great listening skills which allow you to gather information from a number of sources and build the best product roadmap
  • The ability to assess your own emotions and to recognise how others respond to you
  • Self-motivation and enthusiasm to be a champion

Benefits

We care about work/life balance here at OUP. With this in mind, we offer 25 days’ holiday that rises with service, plus bank holidays and Christmas closure (3-days) and a 35-hour working week. We are open to discussing flexibility in respect of working hours and the use of technology to support regular remote working, dependent on role. We also have an on-site gym with subsidised membership fees and a great variety of active employee networks and societies.

We help make your money go further by contributing to your pension up to 11%, offering loans and savings schemes through our partnership with Salary Finance, in addition to travel to work schemes and access to a wide range of local discounts.
