In a nutshell

Do you have a love for travel and data? Are you already managing data as an asset, or determining its strategy, or a Data Scientist / Advanced Analyst who is thinking of moving into product management? Does the idea of product managing and driving value out of data(sets) in an airline make you excited? If so, you might be the right candidate we are looking for at Virgin Atlantic.
We are building something incredibly exciting at Virgin Atlantic that no other major airline has done. We are taking our pioneering spirit that began in 1984 and applying that to the digital and data world that we live in today. We are taking a huge step forward in piloting a cloud-first approach to our data and are looking to use our unique Virgin flair to provide an unmatched personalised service on board enabled by a 21st century approach to data.
As such we are looking for a Product Manager to work on bringing business value through building our data platform and catalogue of data in the cloud. Our platform is nascent and our data is untapped. You will be a part of the creation of a new team dedicated to solving difficult problems and utilising data across the business to build the next generation of tools to enable a better customer experience and a more profitable airline. You’ll be very much hands on in creating a new paradigm for a well-loved brand.

You’ll be entrepreneurial, inquisitive and have a relentless focus on delivering business value.

You need to be determined, focused on results, a self-starter, and have demonstrated success in using data to drive the understanding, progression, and business value in optimising a customer journey or in a commercial / marketing / sales world.
It is preferable that you have a Bachelor Degree in Computer Science, Maths, Physics, Engineering, or related quantitative field alongside experience with large data sets and distributed computing (Cloud based environment experience a plus).
