Product Management at TVSquared:

We bring the vision and context to empower great decisions, so we focus on posing the right questions and facilitating important trade-offs, rather than dictating detailed answers.
  • How we build it: We believe in a collaborative partnership where the Product Manager focuses on business and customer outcomes, Engineering and Design focus on how we get there, and Product Marketing focuses on go-to-market and ensuring customers and prospects understand the value we offer. Product’s main role in execution is to be the voice of the market and to make sure we achieve what we set out to do.
  • Communicating with everyone: Product Managers are a key part of the glue that binds together teams at TVSquared. We communicate the who, what, why and when to the company.

  • Curiosity & drive: You should relish challenges and have a strong natural instinct to drive things to completion. We’re looking for the ability and curiosity to learn and adapt to a constantly changing environment.

  • Effortlessly analytical: At TVSquared we start by asking ‘why?’, and a data-driven approach is central to how we run Product 
  • A bias for action: Being leaders in our field, our competitors are constantly snapping at our heels. Finding the right balance between speed and quality, to ensure we ship products that add value quickly, should come naturally to you.
