Are you a strong personality and solid sparring partner with the necessary experience in product management? For Grodan, we are looking for a new colleague who has affinity with horticulture and is looking for a challenging job at a market leader in an international environment! Are you growing a bright future with us?
The more you know, the better you grow
Grodan was at the basis of sustainable greenhouse horticulture by making it possible to grow on stone wool. Today we are the market leader and we continuously develop new solutions so that our customers can grow in the most efficient and sustainable way. The goal is for our customers to optimize their cultivation while making less use of valuable resources such as water, space and nutrients, we call this precision cultivation. We recently launched a new open software platform that integrates rootzone data and provides growers with better business and cultivation technical insights (for data driven Precision Growing). We continue to innovate!
This is the role:
As a product manager within Grodan, you are responsible for the portfolio of substrates for horticulture. You are responsible for the portfolio strategy, creating value propositions for the customers, the maintenance of the portfolio, business cases for new products and the phasing in and out of products. You will also work closely with product engineering and development to ensure that the portfolio remains up to date and that we continue to introduce new innovations to our customers. The prices of the products and the marketing of the products are also your responsibility, in addition to competitive analysis of the portfolio.
You are the voice of the market! In this role you are a strong discussion partner and an important link for our internal environment and colleagues as well as the external environment. You work a lot with colleagues within the marketing team to which you report, as well as the BU in the regions. You have a lot of contact with the supply chain department to ensure that all information is properly entered into the SAP system and the A&D department about the development of new products. In addition to our internal environment, you also have a lot of contact with customers and partners to understand what is important to them regarding our substrates in the market.
This is what you offer:
As a product manager you are a creative, curious and conceptually strong personality with a good dose of experience in a marketing environment. You have an entrepreneurial mindset, you are a natural networker and you strive for the ultimate result as a person. You have strong project management skills, experience with KPIs and stakeholder management.
