General overview of the role
We’re different. We’re using tech to seriously mess with a traditionally manual part of the automotive sector. We’re ambitious, and strongly backed, whilst still being masters of what we do.
Using big data and predictive analytics, Cazana analyses millions of automotive transactions daily. Its award-winning technology gives real-time access to the value and the risk associated with every vehicle on the road. The company is trusted by industry leaders such as dealerships, insurers, financial institutions, and manufacturers.
As our Data Product Manager, you will be a part of our Product team. However, you will be working super closely with our Data and Engineering teams. You will be tasked with owning the API product lifecycle and be confident in using MySQL to deep dive into multiple databases to fully understand our large datasets. We sell APIs into numerous sectors, and in numerous forms, so wrapping your head around this, and working with the Chief Product Officer, and Senior Product Manager to improve the API proposition, as well as working with the Data and Engineering teams on their overall management of these products will be right where you live.
You will also be responsible for managing a few remote Data administrators, whose role within the business is bespoke data collection, as well as managing external clients and their data sources.
This will be quite the specialist role inside Cazana, and we’d love you to be able to bring with you some Product Management knowledge to bolster our team. We recognise that our team has done a fantastic job growing to date, but this role is quite niche, and so we are looking for someone who can come on board, make the role their own, and add value from day 1. There will be learning on your part, but you will be needed to add value quickly, working on things autonomously whilst aligning with the wider product team. Your experience in Product is what will help you achieve this.
