Cyclomedia is global market leader in high-quality geospatial data collection and analysis. To enable their ambitious growth plans, they are hiring an experienced Head of Core Products who will develop a cutting edge product portfolio – while also further developing the team of Product Managers.

About Cyclomedia

Telecom, (local) governments, architecture, engineering, utilities and many other industries are active in the world around us. Geospatial is a true life-saver for them in running their operations efficiently and effectively. From monitoring assets in the public space to preparing a new building location: Cyclomedia’s large-scale, systematic visualisations and LiDAR point clouds bring the outside world to the screen in the finest detail.

For municipal governments, this allows for things like more effective enforcement on misuse of public space, but also more efficient value estimates on real estate for taxation. For utility companies, Cyclomedia’s visualization helps to locate the source of an outage and plan repair work that is as little invasive as possible. For large infrastructure projects, Cyclomedia can help to precisely map the situation onsite. The list of potential applications and clients goes on. In the quest to create smart and green cities that are equipped for the future, Cyclomedia brings unique possibilities.

Cyclomedia currently collects this data through its global fleet of 60+ camera-outfitted cars. The data is then uploaded to their platform, Street Smart, which can be accessed directly by clients. Cyclomedia’s own specialists also continuously perform analyses, creating insightful visualizations with actionable information.

Meanwhile, the company is working on new product initiatives, such as the Street Hive: a solution where clients use their own car fleet equipped with Cyclomedia’s plug and play recorder allowing customers to create actionable insights whenever they need it.

Vacancy: Head of Core Products

To help Cyclomedia push the boundaries of the geospatial technology market, the company is looking for a seasoned Head of Core Products. This person will be pivotal in taking Cyclomedia to the next level by expanding its product portfolio with cutting-edge innovations, in line with customer needs but exceeding their expectations.

The head of Core products will be responsible for all product development of Cyclomedia’s core product portfolio; ranging from data collection hardware and software, positioning technology, data visualization software (i.e. Street Smart) and key new initiatives (i.e. Street Hive). The Head of Core Products will also work with his team to define winning go-to-market strategies, as well as defining OKRs for the various product teams.

In order to successfully do so, they will rely on frequent customer interaction to gain a deep understanding of customer problems and market dynamics. They will also work together closely with Cyclomedia’s engineers to ensure the customer expectations are properly translated into product roadmaps.

The Head of Core Products reports into Bouke Douma, Director of Product Strategy and Marketing, and leads a team of 5 Product Managers. The Head of Core Products will be a peer to the Head of Data Insights, who is responsible for our data insight product portfolio.

“We have a team of highly talented Product Managers, to whom the Head of Core Products will act as a supportive and coaching leader. The Head of Core Products will truly streamline the team’s efforts and help optimize their output, while also providing product leadership within the company.” – Bouke Douma, Head of Product and Marketing

The candidate

The organization has high growth ambitious, including further expansion of the product portfolio and revenue growth. To achieve these goals, the company is moving from a project driven to a product driven way of working. The Product team needs the support of an experienced leader to guide and coach them in this transition. Therefore, the Head of Core Products should have experience in managing a team and coaching colleagues. The Head of Core Products will, furthermore, have frequent contact with clients to collect input and build relations.

Since the role sits at the intersection of technical and commercial product development, the ideal candidate has experience or demonstrable affinity with both. They are expected to bring commercial savvy as well as technical creativity to the table, without having to fully understand the engineering details. Ideally, they have gained the necessary experience in a related industry where geospatial technology plays a key role.

This is a highly interesting opportunity for a Product enthusiast with leadership experience, who is excited about helping an organization with a unique technical product to the next phase of global success.
