Product Manager – Wolters Kluwer – Alphen Aan Den Rijn

Wolters Kluwer

We’re looking for a Product Manager to join our Wolters Kluwer Digital eXperience Group */dxg.

As our new Product Manager, you will work on our TaskFlow solution. TaskFlow is a no-code solution which provides interactive content that transforms static text, diagrams, word files, and spreadsheets into an interactive format that is easier to follow and use. TaskFlow uses visual, drag and drop programming, which means that even non-technical resources can author and edit interactive practical content. And because editors can focus on content creation rather than programming, they can create more content with the same editorial resources.

You will partner up with the team to run experiments and do customer research with the objective of surfacing business and user problems for the team to tackle. Once a clear business problem is identified you, along with the product team, team up with the User Experience Design team to lead and drive the early phases of the product development process.

For this role you know how to balance 1) product management, 2) user experience and 3) technology.
