Digital Product Manager Octopus Business (m/f)

We serve both the professional accountant as well as the business owner. These two often work closely together. Both, however, have different needs. As (Digital) Product Manager Octopus Business you combine the best of a Product Manager, Product Owner and Product Marketeer for our Business Segment.

Your mission

As (Digital) Product Manager Octopus you are a bit like a spider in our 'business' web:

  • Together with our Sales team you drive customer knowledge, draft (business) customer roadmap(s),
  • Together with our Marketing team you monitor market and competition, plan launches of updates and novelties, set up and track digital campaigns on LinkedIn and Facebook.

Next to this you set up a full-fledged digital, self-learning environment for a set of broad users (from beginners to more experienced). You oversee customer intake, which - certainly at the beginning - you even join.

By doing so you gradually become the core ambassador as far as the business proposition is concerned inside and outside Octopus. You work together with internal people to drive forward and refine the business proposition. You also meet externally with Belgian partners - with the goal to create the best Belgian accounting solution. In maximum 18 months from now you are an expert in 'Belgian accounting' from the perspective of a business owner.

We do realize this is a challenging request. We are therefore looking for a person of many trades and with many skills.

Your profile

  • You have experience with lead management, preferentially (but not necessary) in a software environment;
  • You have experience with digital campaigns - SEO, SEA are no mystery to you;
  • Preferentially you have some experience with the Google Ads platform;
  • You have proven experience with LinkedIn in order to get leads;
  • You have experience or were somehow involved in setting up a concrete digital learning environment;
  • You have experience or at least a strong interest in webinars, podcasts and similar media;
  • You have direct experience with digital production for promotional and/or educational reasons;
  • You have editing skills, you know your way around in Adobe Première Pro.
  • You know what a sound business case is and have experience with segmentation;
  • You have worked in a - preferentially agile - environment and you have seen product owners at work - epics, product backlog... these are all things you are familiar with;
  • You are a strong communicator in Dutch and/or French (either Dutch or French are native, you feel comfortable with the other language), preferentially also English;
  • You preferentially have accounting knowledge or alternatively are not afraid to take a (real) deep dive;
  • You have a growth mindset and you like to learn.

Our offer

That is quite a handful. But there's also a lot we can offer:

  • You are part of a truly Belgian environment, a solid company which has been growing constantly at a healthy pace;
  • You are part of a great team of enthusiasts, proud of the solution they have in hand and the potential it still has for the future;
  • You are part of a non-hierarchical team, where transparency, being down-to-earth, supporting each other and moving forward together are still strongly appreciated;
  • For the right candidate, we offer a competitive salary with a great package of extra benefits;
  • We are based in the surroundings of Gent (Gentbrugge).
