Salary Notes: Competitive
Type: Permanent
Start Date: ASAP

We are looking for a Product Manager (Messaging and New Ventures) to join us on a permanent basis in our Jersey office, or alternatively working remotely in the UK.

At JT International we rarely stand still. We constantly flex to seize the opportunities presented by new technologies and markets, and to meet our customers' complex needs. This role will see you take product ownership of our growing SMS Messaging business, and provide product support for the new technology ventures being developed through the emerging JT International "Incubator".

You will be an expert on the Messaging market, pulling understanding and opinion from internal and external sources to provide strategic input and guidance. Your knowledge, experience and effort will help define, deliver and manage the products that will differentiate and grow JT's portfolio in a highly competitive market. Experience in nurturing new technologies from concept through to a fully validated investment proposition will also be beneficial.

This is a great opportunity for someone who enjoys owning end-to-end definition and delivery, and seeing the tangible output of their effort. You will work closely with the Sales team to commercially qualify new propositions, and the Operations, Delivery and Finance teams to bring concepts to life. The ability to work autonomously and manage/influence stakeholders and complex teams remotely is essential.

If you are you looking to make a change and become a part of an agile and innovative telco, then get in touch with us today.

JT are committed to building a diverse and inclusive working environment and JT Family. If you require any support or assistance in making your application, please contact us.
