The Opportunity

This is quite a unique opportunity that we don’t often see since this recently created company (a new and rapidly scaling SaaS business) has been spun out from a large, established & profitable FMCG company. This means that the risks that are sometimes associated in joining an early stage company are well mitigated

The proposition fits into the MarTech ecosystem and specifically Influencer Marketing SaaS, the idea for the solution originating from within the parent company leading to the creation of this new SaaS proposition.

We are hiring for a Product Owner who will work closely with the CEO and other stakeholders to further build and enhance the product road map.

This is a great opportunity to join a company exactly at the opportune time to capitalise on an exciting SaaS growth story.
