Ooni is looking for a Technical Project Manager to join our awesome Product Development team to help ensure we deliver on our promise of providing high-quality pizza ovens and accessories.

 

A Little About Ooni:
When we launched in 2012, we created a category by offering a small, fast, and accessible wood-fired pizza oven that gave ordinary people the critical tool to make great pizza at home.Now we’re on fire. Exponential growth, global distribution, an ever-expanding product portfolio that goes well beyond ovens, and a growing community of Ooni-lovers around the world who sing our praises and treat their friends and family to epic pizza. We’re at that perfect stage of growth, where we’re still small enough for you to make a major difference, while big enough to have resources to do amazing things.

You will:

  • Work closely with our Product Development team to drive projects forward to make world class products, from their inception to manufacture, launch, and beyond.
  • Report to the Senior Project Manager, but be expected to take ownership of running product development streams.
  • Work with stakeholders to define appropriate project deadlines and priorities across projects, and help identify where additional resources are needed.
  • Manage multiple product development projects at once across our Engineering and Design teams, and overseas Manufacturing partners, and own project timelines and task management

You will work closely with our Engineering and Design teams to manage project timelines, deliverables, and keep us running smoothly.You will work in a very open and collaborative environment; the best idea wins, regardless of role or title. You’ll work in an ambitious, innovative product team that has their foot on the pedal. We’re the fastest-growing company in Scotland and our product team is at the heart of our growth.
