As a Senior Product Manager (reporting to the Senior Director for MSAT and Quality D&A Products) you will own and manage a range of Data & Analytics (D&A) Products for the MSAT (Manufacturing Science & Technology) and Quality functions within GSK’s Pharmaceutical and Vaccines Supply Chains.

Acting as the bridge (and translator) between the business functions and GSK’s Digital & Technology teams (which include Subject Matter Experts and external third-party organisations), you will work closely with senior business leaders (including Site and Functional leads) to identify opportunities (including prioritising work and defining high-level requirements). You will then work closely with business experts and data/tech specialists (including architects, scrum-masters, data engineers, data modelers and data scientists) to ensure the identified opportunities are successfully translated into D&A solutions leveraging GSK’s Enterprise Data Platform.

Day-to-day you will use your data analytics, business domain and product management expertise to define and refine D&A product visions, strategies and roadmaps to drive the design and delivery of high-quality D&A solutions (to enable the company to achieve its objectives). Your responsibilities will extend to overseeing an annual budgetary spend as you work with up to 15 third-party data/tech specialists.

D&A Products currently being delivered by the team include: automation solutions for the generation of essential dashboards/reports for hundreds of global users, laboratory analysis solutions using ai/ml to analyse lab-images more rapidly and efficiently than humans, solutions using Generative AI to accelerate content analysis and creation workflows.

Key Responsibilities (includes):

  • Understanding needs, business processes and data requirements of customer-groups and users, and manage key business relationships for your D&A products
  • Combining business understanding with knowledge of established and emerging D&A capabilities to identify and cultivate D&A use-cases from ideas into potential D&A products
  • Creating clear and compelling D&A Product vision, strategy and roadmap to deliver value across the Product lifecycle in line with strategies and priorities of customers
  • Thinking and acting with agility, using experimentation, user demos and other sources of rapid feedback to iteratively refine the D&A Product Roadmap and backlog throughout the Product lifecycle
  • Owning D&A Product backlog and actively participating in quarterly and sprint planning to ensure the development team’s work is appropriately prioritised based on value, cost, dependencies and other relevant factors
  • Overseeing development team of internal and external D&A experts and enabling them to be effective by ensuring they have clear requirements to design and deliver against, by making timely decisions and by working with customers and other Product teams to reduce dependencies and remove blockers
  • Engaging with D&A Architecture team and others to ensure D&A Product technical design aligns with target architecture and established standards
  • Confirming delivery from development team meets the business requirements and creates the expected value in line with business KPIs
  • Ensuring overall quality and compliance of D&A Product including GxP Validation if required
  • Coaching and guiding wider product team, promoting a culture of continuous improvement
