Product Managers at Kin + Carta work at the intersection of disciplines, to create products that unlock value for users and capture value for clients. We work across the full lifecycle of a product, from hypothesis and execution, to growth and optimisation.
Our Product Managers are user-centric. We understand our clients and their users. Insights gained from regular user interactions are fed back into product initiatives and business strategy.
Our Product Managers are strategic. We identify the right problems to solve that create the most value for users, and help the organisation achieve their goals. We inspire teams and create alignment by defining a clear vision, strategic purpose, and direction for the products we work on.
Our Product Managers are outcome-oriented. We safeguard success by measuring outcomes not outputs. We identify leading measures that the product team can influence on the way to achieving organisation objectives. Changes are measured, and results inform the team’s next step.
Our Product Managers are comfortable with ambiguity. We fall in love with problems not solutions. We create clarity, even if that exposes uncertainty and complexity. Throughout the product lifecycle we turn insights into actions and experiments, ensuring the team always knows the most valuable thing to explore, test or build next.
Our Product Managers are collaborative. Our Product Managers aren't CEOs. We ask open questions and work with the whole team to explore the problem and opportunity space. We help the team ensure solutions are desirable for users, viable for the business and feasible to build.
Our Product Managers are pragmatic. We understand the constraints and challenges of different organisations, and know how to be successful in that context.
Our Product Managers reach out and mediate. Stakeholder management is absolutely key to product management within the Public Sector. We reach out to find the people who have a view or a need from our products and we mediate between different views to achieve great outcomes for our clients.
