Product Management Jobs in Kampala, Uganda

Are you a business-savvy product expert that can pinpoint what drives value in a software product? Available in Kampala, Uganda.

Job Description

Do you spend most of your time developing product features that nobody will care about?

What if you could dedicate your expertise to generating product insights that will improve over 100 B2B solutions? 

Typical products start as a great idea to solve a business issue but often get lost in the way: trying to attract more clients, they pile up features that don't add any real value. 

In order to achieve the aforementioned goals, we are looking for experts who can strip products down to their core features and discover the unique selling proposition in existing products.

This are not your typical product management roles. Instead of endlessly searching for new features, you will be responsible for finding unique selling propositions for diverse solutions. You will dig deep into each product, uncover its core use cases, research customers and markets, and generate insights about what enables customers to achieve their business goals.

Your job will be to create exciting visions and roadmaps. For every one of our solutions, you might dig deep into market research, identifying trends and patterns in customer behavior, or making critical commercial decisions that guide other teams in making the product successful.

Excited about revamping multiple million-dollar products? Apply today and join our teams!


What you will be doing

  • Creating a vision for a product and generating long-term business value based on customer and market information.
  • Establishing product roadmaps and setting milestones for value realization.
  • Making important commercial decisions that enable teams to deliver business value.

What you will NOT be doing

  • Managing the entire product development cycle. Instead, you will focus solely on what you do best: product strategies.
  • Technical product decisions. We have a dedicated team for technical product management so you can focus on the commercial aspects.
  • Cross-functional communication or garnering stakeholder alignment. You will be the primary decision-maker.

Key Responsibilities

Deliver product visions that attract customers, and product roadmaps that create business value.

Candidate Requirements

  • Experience in Product Management
  • Hands-on experience with product exploration and research, identifying business processes, use cases, and capabilities
  • Experience interacting directly with customers
  • Ability to identify which product features are critical to creating business value for customers
