About Loam

At Loam, we have the earth in our hands. As a team of scientists, farmers and entrepreneurs, we are on a mission to improve the world’s farmland and address climate change.

We are developing microbial technology to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and build carbon in agricultural soils. With a dedicated agenda to deliver nature based solutions, we help farming businesses prosper by boosting yield and soil health and enabling access to carbon markets.

As a start-up with ambitious founders and investors, our work is fast-paced and multidimensional. We foster a supportive and diverse workplace, where every team member is encouraged to learn and grow beyond their area of expertise.

While everyone at Loam is working in different roles, we all have one job: to remove CO2 from the atmosphere and store it stably in the soil.

- Evaluate promotional plans to ensure that they are consistent with product line strategy and that the message is effectively conveyed
- Act as a product evangelist to build awareness and understanding
- Represent the company by visiting customers to solicit feedback on company products and services

The role will require you to:
- Develop and deliver the vision and positioning for your product and participate in the design and conceptualization of the overall product concept and execution.
- Conducting early-stage customer discovery activities and translating these into requirements.
- Deliver new product revenue to new and existing clients to agreed commercial targets.
- Manage your product's mid to long-term feature road-map that is based on outcomes and aligned with the wider business road-map
- Manage and prioritise your product backlog daily and as part of your teams' agile/lean development processes
- Capturing product requirements from customers and stakeholders and writing accurate user stories
- Actively contribute to a growing Product Management culture within Loam and advocate customer and data-driven decision making

Requirements
- Proven work experience in product management or as an associate product manager
