Head of Product

Copenhagen, Denmark
Product & Engineering
Full time
Unless you are a 14 year old football player you probably won't have actually seen our product in action, and won't know the ins and outs of how the app works...so how can you decide if this is a product that you want to put your heart and soul into? Well over 925,000 active users can't be wrong...right?

We're looking for someone whose pace quickens when they think that they could be part of making the best football app in the world, who believes in what the great Johan Cruyff once said "Football has to be fun for kids or it doesn't make sense". You could play a pivotal role in the future of our company and be responsible for the technical vision and development of the Tonsser app. 

You will be reporting in to the Chief Product Officer and be managing a team of Product Managers and Designers, collaborating with the Brand, Tech and support teams, as well as providing the overall vision for the product roadmap. You want to have a holistic product experience: and will be part of every stage of the design lifecycle.

You will be part of an amazing team working to touch the lives of hundreds of thousand football players across Europe. Our team is ambitious and awesome: we're always looking to develop ourselves, and our products. 

What you'll be doing:

    • Lead, manage and mentor a team of product specialists, helping them reach their maximum potential
    • Product planning and assignment of tasks and deliverables.
    • Product lifecycle management from concept to launch of the product(s) across all products/product lines.
