General Manager – SAAS

General Manager – SAAS

Website NewyTechPeople

Are you a product leader wanting to take on broader business management responsibilities?

Makes sense really since product managers are so often compared to CEOs!  In this role your General Management remit will be scaling a well-established, Newcastle-based SaaS company operating in the high-growth, freight logistics industry.  However, you will also be the Product Management Lead with responsibility for strategy and roadmap.  There’s a lot to work with in the current structure; awesome product, strong leadership team (technology, sales, marketing, operations), deep customer understanding, data, and the funding to drive growth.   

One of the most attractive things about this role is the support and mentorship you’ll receive from their capital investment company.  Their specialisation is investing in software/tech companies and their track record is impressive.  Since they invested in the business in 2021, it’s expanded nationally and further global expansion plans are scheduled for late 2022.  If you are an exceptional Product Leader with the ambition and experience (min 10 direct reports) to be a General Manager, they could support your transition.  If you already have General Management experience they’ll provide you with the challenge and support you need to drive significant growth and make this a career defining role.

Reporting directly to the board of directors, the General Manager will be an integral member of the leadership team. This is a strategic and operational role that is responsible for customer growth and overall revenue.  You’ll implement best practice processes, and keep the business focused on the right strategic priorities, continuous improvement, and customer needs.  You’ll identify and take advantage of strategic opportunities while mitigating risks, with the goal of accelerating business growth. 

You must have significant B2B SaaS product experience at a leadership level (Head of Product or Chief Product Officer) to be considered for this role.  Transport or logistics industry experience is preferred but not essetial.  You don’t need to come from a technical background as you’ll be partnering with the founder/CTO and there is already a strong Sales leader in the business.   However, Growth Marketing experience would be ideal.

Your leadership skills will be one of your greatest strengths.  The team needs a leader who will inspire, empathise and engage them through a period of accelerated growth which can be challenging.  

Whilst regular travel to Newcastle will be required we are very open to candidates with highly relevant experience (SaaS product and logistics) who live in Sydney/other locations in NSW.
