London office

Head of Product

MyBuilder.com is an innovative, successful web business based in Central London, enabling homeowners to find reliable tradesmen through the power of customer feedback. We are a hard working, close-knit team dedicated to creating an incredible product that solves a genuine problem.

We’re one of the largest home services marketplaces in the UK and earlier this year we became part of IAC, a well known New York based internet group (Ask.com, Expedia, Tripadvisor, Vimeo, Match.com, Tinder and HomeAdvisor, to name a few of their brands). IAC is the best partner we could hope for, with a long history of investing in and growing market leading home services marketplaces around the world.

We’re looking for an experienced Head of Product to help us take MyBuilder.com to the next level. Reporting to the CEO, you’ll be responsible for developing the product team.

Main responsibilities

  • Develop MyBuilder’s product strategy and roadmap.
  • Work with the tech team to execute the product roadmap.
  • Hire, manage and develop our designers and product managers.
  • Work with the CEO and other managers to integrate strategy and activities.
  • Help to ensure that MyBuilder lives its mission day in, day out.
  • Do your bit to make sure MyBuilder is a great place to work.

About you

  • 5+ years of experience in product management
  • Similar levels of experience hiring and managing people
  • In depth knowledge and passion on understanding consumer products both from a customer and technology point of view
  • Excellent technical familiarity and communication skills
  • High levels of emotional and analytical intelligence
  • Outstanding problem solving skills

Why you’ll enjoy working at MyBuilder

Engineering, Product and Design work together at MyBuilder, using agile processes in a highly collaborative environment with blurred lines between these disciplines. We have a large and complex product with more interesting challenges to solve than we have time to tackle.

We have daily check-ins for departments and project teams. We problem solve on paper, whiteboards and in Sketch. We prototype in the browser, deploy only when ready, and split test as much as possible with genuine users. We’re a small but growing team meaning you’ll have the opportunity to have a direct impact on a large scale product.

We’ll set you up with a shiny new Mac and a spacious workspace at our lovely Clerkenwell office. As part of a close-knit team, you’ll benefit from regular peer support and feedback to help you succeed and progress in your role at MyBuilder. Most importantly, you’ll be in great company, surrounded by a world class team on a mission to make the world a better place, one project at a time. We’ll also add:

  • Competitive salary
  • Company pension
  • Health Cash Plan
  • Group Life Assurance Scheme
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Season ticket loan
  • 31 days holiday with an extra day for each year served (no cap)
