VP Product

Job type

The opportunity:

Clinicians have long been the providers of care, but the takers of none.  Long term trends and insights prove that the those whose calling is healthcare often have poor to problematic long-term health.  Enter the platform to change all that.  Through building a professional content and community driven network, clinicians globally will access the latest research in their fields, gain healthy interventions and form connections to improve wellbeing across physical, mental and emotional metrics.  This business already has this operational and the feedback from their audience is overwhelmingly positive.

A Product leader needs to join and guide the next phase of growth.

Work with the founders, engineering and design, and you'll have the chance to grow your career like no other time and be part of one of New Zealand's success stories that ain’t making donations or accounting software.

Company profile:

Built off the back of a highly successful multi-national people and resourcing business came the access to a powerful community of clinicians that are the foundational audience, driving the development and adoption of this perspective and wellbeing approach for the global clinician network. The product suite includes opportunities for brand new thinking for new product prototypes. Teh incorporation of a surprisingly underserved profession and the commercial opportunities when this takes off are myriad.

Product Exec Leadership:

The journey of growth and change for this business has been proud and ongoing work.  Growth of the business and products requires an executive leader role to empower the engineering leaders and product peeps, build greater cohesion within the teams and streamline delivery through predictable systems.  The chance to own Product is the must.

The role breaks down into four core components:

Product strategy: dream and define a rallying vision, garner insights and knowledge to build confidence in marriage of product and engineering; commercial to technical.  There'll be some hands-on product management as the product moves through bona fide go-to-market. 

People leadership: growth and management of your new team & their professional development

Delivery leadership: strategic thinking and grunt to better define predictable systems to meet milestones/achievable goals, orchestrate through your team leads and relationships with other parts of the business 

Commercial leadership: Work with your ELT, key leaders and boffins, ensure that the commercial goals are met with the technology innovation and planning

The fit:

To be able to fulfill this role you will be driven by the opportunity to influence the direction of a product business and its strategic product, technology and commercial roadmap.  You’ll thrive in the challenge of growth and want to see the impact of your teams and products on customers. You'll also love rapid prototyping and experimentation creating and leading inter-team collaboration.

You’ll celebrate the opportunity to win the hearts and minds of your team and grow them, igniting a sense of purpose for the company’s vision. Emerging from a product and technical business or background in an leadership role for a technology vendor, you’ll be ready for a bigger role than you are in now.  Growth and scaling of a software vendor in the B2B or B2C products or similar product development sphere.  You don’t need a Health background.

Reporting directly to the founder you'll marry people, technology and delivery leadership and want to create a culture of excitement and purpose within a new role in a new business.
