The role is accountable for leading the digital product development within a specific area of responsibility, by creating and delivering the vision and roadmap for digital project and functionality.

We’ll need to see evidence of you having delivered digital / multichannel development and a proven track record in user story design, estimation and planning.


About our purpose
There are all kinds of personal and professional benefits to being part of our digital team, but it’s also worth remembering that everything we do has a sense of purpose. We’re not just here to sell food or treats, we want to help pets and their owners live happier, healthier lives together. When you make a project a success, there’s a pet and their owner at the other end who are benefitting from your efforts.
