Product & Project Management Team Leader

Warsaw/remote

We are all about supercharging tech-based businesses. But make no mistake – software development is just a part of what we do at Startup House. Our mission is to deliver all-around support for startups at all stages of development.

Our PM Team is expanding and looking for fresh blood – we’re currently looking for a Team Leader who will guide our PMs on their development path and lead software development projects with success.

As a PM Team Leader you will work both as a people manager and senior Product or Project Manager, depending on your background, with a time ratio of 50% for management and 50% for project-related work.

It’s a great role for you if you want to advance your career as a manager but still develop great startup projects hands-on!

Write to us, call us, join us and let's make some startups grow!

How can you grow with us?

  • You’re going to set the direction towards becoming the best Product & Project Management Team for startups and innovation in Europe – for a start :)

If your background is Product Management:

  • You’re going to co-create a vision and product strategy during the client acquisition phase,
  • You will advise our clients on the best possible product development strategy – defining the MVP and further growth,
  • Conducting workshops with clients will be your bread and butter in order to define the direction of further product development and creating the product roadmap,
  • You will analyse users' needs and suggestions, collect feedback and opinions through user interviews,
  • You’re going to cooperate closely with our product teams (Developers, Designers, QAs),

 

Requirements:

  • 6+ years of experience as a Product Manager or Digital Consultant in the IT industry,

  • Ability to understand the technical architecture of complex web and mobile applications,
  • Experience in conducting Design Sprint workshops with clients or using the Strategyzer methodology (Business Model Generation, Testing Business Ideas, Value Proposition Design),
  • Knowledge of product business model design, planning and verifying product hypotheses, defining product-market fit, planning a go-to-market strategy,
  • Passion for startups and product creation,
  • Project management tools (preferably Jira),
  • Excellent communication skills in Polish and English (C1+) – we work internationally, so that’s a must.

 

If your background is Project Management:

  • Executing 2–3 projects simultaneously within a set scope, schedule and budget,
  • Managing our project teams (Developers, Designers, QAs),
  • Working closely with our clients throughout the project lifecycle and advising them on the best possible solutions in terms of scalability, development management, tool selection, etc.
