Director of Product - Robotics, AI

We are seeking a Head of / Director of Product to join this ground-breaking company, as part of a new team focussing on emerging technology and product vision within the robotics, AI, Mechatronics and Engineering field.

As the Head of / Director of Product, you will boat a strong background in product, hardware, and software - ideally within the Engineering sector. This role offers the fantastic chance to genuinely shape the way in which robotics are used moving forward, changing the game with the use of cutting-edge technology and the freedom to try out new ideas in line with business vision and goals.

You will manage an existing product team and grow this further (also managing P&L / budgets), build out the product vision, strategy, and roadmap, whilst working with a range of AI, mechanical engineering, robotics, hardware, and software-based technology within a hugely exciting area of the business! You will also (when safe to do so) visit some of our recently acquired AI companies in the USA, so flexibility to travel for a few days a month is needed.

Further skills needed for the Head of / Director of Product:

  • Strong background in technical product; building roadmaps, visions, and strategies
  • Excellent line management experience of large teams, with the ability to grow them further
  • P&L and budget management
  • Technical background in engineering; both hardware and software (AI / Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Robotics, Mechanical Engineering, Mechatronics, Automation)
  • Excellent stakeholder management
  • Flexibility to travel internationally (often to the USA), a few days a month on average
  • Experience of working with cutting-edge, emerging technology

As the Head of / Director of Product you will help the business to push the boundaries of what they can do with tech! You will have a significant impact immediately, and genuinely help to change the game when it comes to the use of automated technology.
