Not the ordinary Product Manager - is that you?
The last two years have been all about R&D where we have developed our Protein Technology Platform which in essence means enabling us to create the worlds’ most ambitious cheese. In early May we launched our first product using this platform, and we have an ambitious plan to roll out a complete product portfolio with another three products by the end of 2022.
We are now looking for two additional Product Managers to take full responsibility and ownership of specific products in a super dynamic and cross disciplinary / functional role. One could say that you’d actually become the CEO of a specific product and hence have a critical impact on the business growth.
Being a Product Manager at Stockeld means that you basically have the full ownership of one or several products in the portfolio. This means that we will count on you to successfully take our NPD's to market, be responsible for their performance, future market expansions, defining market trends and gaps and come with recommendations on innovation pipelines.
You will project manage the development process from prototype to launch and take lead on the various activities needed to get there (incl. packaging development, business case ownership and performance tracking). This role will entail a hybrid perspective combining the commercial, technical and strategic dimensions of the business.
In this position you will report to myself (Katarina Szostak, Head of Product & Marketing) and work closely with R&D, Supply Chain and Sales.
Lastly, and maybe one of the most important things, being part of this awesome expansion journey means that there will be endless opportunities for your role and responsibilities to grow. You’re up for a fun ride, promise!
Who we believe you are
You don’t have to be vegan, actually none of us are 100% strict about it, but we expect you to have 6-10 years experience from the food & beverage industry. You have successfully championed complex NPD projects with multiple stakeholders, taken ownership and both defined and delivered on business KPIs in a fast-paced organisation. So, being a rockstar in project management is a given.
Your experience from shaping and owning Business Cases have set you up for having a strong business acumen. Your profound communication skills (in English and/or Swedish) means you collaborate efficiently with a diverse range of stakeholders, from clients to scientists. Educational wise, you have a degree in Business/Marketing/Engineering.
When it comes down to personal traits, we believe that the description above reflects a self-starter with a strong intellectual curiosity and someone who solves problems in a creative way. Being structured and assertive in combination with disruptive and agile thinking is a winning recipe!
Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions, or apply directly. We are very much looking forward to hearing from you!
