Product Strategist / Manager

Product Strategist / Manager

JOB PURPOSE

**The role of Product Strategist / Manager is internally referred to as a Lead Tech Planner at Byte London**

The tech team develops emerging technologies for marketing including AR, chatbots, and automation tools. We are responsible for continuing to drive R&D throughout the London, New York and Berlin office. We are market leaders in conversational commerce and augmented reality, and are tech partners with Facebook, Snapchat and TikTok. 

The Lead Tech Planner role combines digital strategy and project delivery; you must be able to write clear digital strategies, confident in selling the vision into clients, define the technical requirements and manage the team through the delivery.

The Lead Tech Planner acts as an important bridge between developers and the rest of the company. An interest in chatbots and augmented reality is important, and an insatiable curiosity for innovation even better.
