Director of Product (m/f/d), Berlin or Cologne

Germany, Berlin, BerlinTech, Product & Data

Your Tasks

At Shop Apotheke we are all about health! Our e-pharmacy serves 8M+ customers across Europe, and we welcome new users every week. We are growing the existing platform and adding entirely new services to it. Our goal is to enable our customers to live their healthiest lives possible.

We are looking for a Director of Product to join our team in Cologne or Berlin. Come, build with us!

The role

In this role you are responsible for the overall Product Management at Shop Apotheke. You will contribute to how our Product delivers even more value to our customers and to, simply put, making our Product better.

You will have 8+ direct reports. This includes Lead Product Owners, who steer the work of 20+ cross functional teams (approximately half of those are in-house and half are external); Delivery Heads for Initiatives; the Head of UX. You, in turn, will report to the Executive Director of Product Development.

What you will do

  • Improve the ways of working in the Product Development organization.

  • Empower value-driven decision-making. You will bring a pragmatic attitude to how you prioritize; you will recognize and be transparent about trade-offs when a decision needs to be taken despite uncertainty or the lack of detail.

  • Drive customer-centric decisions using relevant data

  • Work with a budget. You will invest in the teams and you will enable your direct reports to work with their budgets. You will be accountable for a strategy to justify investments and the corresponding business cases.

  • Enable the people who report to you. You will be a servant leader towards your team. You will provide continued feedback (we like Radical Candor! Do you?) and you will keep a high level of involvement of your team.

  • Cooperate with your peers, such as Directors of Engineering or Agility, to drive decisions together.
