Job Description

About the role
We are looking for a Product development Director with a double background: marketing experience in FMCG brands and new product development experience. This person will be able to understand the brand equity & strategy of our brands and build the brand innovation program accordingly: define the business plan, identify new product opportunities, brief and manage the project teams end to end – from idea generation to product launch.

What you will do

  • Manage a Product Development team of between 5-10 people (project managers, designers).
  • Drive the identification of product opportunities based on a range of criteria (profit margin assessment, market demand assessment).
  • Develop differentiated products that can stand out in the Amazon marketplace, with unique features and strong product branding.
  • Collaborate closely with other internal departments, such as sourcing team, commercial, marketing, supply chain, QA & QC.
  • Financial BP modeling

Preferred Experience

Who you are

  • 7 + years’ experience in Marketing and new product development or sourcing experience in the FMCG space.
  • Preferred but not required: Experience with Amazon

Our values are at the foundation of our company, and we are looking for people who:

  • Are owners. Our people think long term and don’t sacrifice long-term value for short-term results. They act on behalf of the entire company, beyond just their own team. They never say “that’s not my job”.
  • Are continually raising the bar. Our people drive their teams to deliver high quality products, services and processes. They ensure that defects do not get sent down the line and that problems are fixed so they stay fixed.
  • Are sincerely open-minded, and are willing to examine their strongest convictions with humility.
  • Nurture and embrace differing perspectives to make better decisions. Our company is global from the get go, collaborating effectively with people of diverse backgrounds and cultures is key.
