You will be the Product Manager in the OMOP Factory team, translating high-level business requirements into user stories and co-owning product roadmap as part of the product management team. You will work with individual scrum teams to make the product vision a reality and in doing so, shape the future of real-world patient data.

In this role, you will:

  • Co-own (with the product director) the OMOP Factory product roadmap, including functionality, UI/UX and data visualizations
  • Translate high-level requirements into detailed user stories that the development team can execute against, writing “Given / When / Then” scenarios to aid a BDD approach
  • Work with the product director to prioritize stories in the team backlog
  • Review test plans and verify they map back to requirements
  • Act as the go-to enabler for the development team, supporting / acting as scrum master as needed
  • Write release notes
  • Support software implementations, acting as a product expert for users and monitoring user requirements
  • Support the sales process, eg, with demos and roadmap visibility

Our ideal candidate will be/have;

  • Strong experience in software product management/ownership
  • Experience with Agile software development methodologies
  • Strong project management skills
  • Results-oriented with a focus on delivery
  • Ability to demonstrate / talk about software to audiences of mixed technical abilities
  • Self-motivated, enthusiastic and hard-working
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills

Bonus points for;

  • Experience in life sciences / healthcare sector
  • University degree in a relevant subject
  • Experience of working in an international market, across different cultures and time zones
  • Experience with data products or data standards

Location and travel

  • This role is based in IQVIA’s Brighton office, where the development team is located
  • Minimal travel expected to other IQVIA offices (London, East Coast US), to attend conferences or visit customers
