What will you do?
As the Product Development Manager, you will be the new team lead for the product management (and innovation) division, in which you manage not only people but also processes and ways of thinking.

In other words, you contribute to the design and shaping of the organisation from a content-based point of view. Additionally, you have to deal with the interests of internal and external stakeholders on a daily basis. Furthermore, EMM’s products are distinctive on the market in terms of quality, so you should continuously contribute to further develop and add value to its products. Philosophy and (product) vision are crucial to the role, rather than having a slick track record. Lastly, you report directly to the managing director.

  • Min. of 5 years in a managerial position, preferably in product (development) management, (product) innovation management, or equivalent;
