Softcat offers a variety of different Hybrid Infrastructure services within our portfolio. As the IT Services Product Manager for Cloud, you’ll be the custodian of each service during its design and development, ensuring what we are developing, and why; is clearly defined with Softcat. It will be your responsibility to decide the features of each service. Which will entail you overseeing a service during the service development and test phases, to ensure it meets its objectives, whilst communicating service development updates to key people in Softcat. This naturally means understanding and articulating the vision behind each service to the service development team, and actively engaging with the virtual service development team to build great relationships with them. You’ll also take charge of the prioritisation, delivery, and continual assessment of the service backlog. An important aspect of your remit will be to champion a thorough understanding of customer needs, the market, our competition, and future trends; to feed into the services being developed.
Please note, this role can be based in Marlow or the South Coast, but if it's the latter, there will be an expectation to work in Marlow at least one day a week.
