Product Management Assistant

Who are we?

Our journey started in 2013 with the mission of disrupting a heating industry reliant on unsustainable energy, which didn’t reflect the global need for an ecological solution.

Five category-leading ecommerce store, two innovative brands, and a manufacturing base across three continents later, Ignition has helped over 150,000 homeowners and businesses make the change from outmoded, inefficient heating to a more sustainable solution. We are changing the narrative, designing the products our customers want and our planet needs.

Set in the heart of the North Yorkshire countryside, our office buzzes with creativity; it’s the home of curious minds, innovative thinkers, go getters and customer champions. We listen, we adapt. We take things apart and put them back together, learning from our customers at every step – all our products and ecommerce stores were built this way.

The Product team sits at the heart of the Ignition mission, drawing on expertise from across the business to manage all aspects of product lifecycle. The team take products from first conception to launch, leading the development of new ranges – idea vetting, brief building, sourcing, sample testing, compliance assessing, documentation writing – and driving their post-launch success through performance monitoring, proactive updates and fixes, and co-ordination of sales and support strategies. Collaborating closely with Sales, Marketing, Web Development and Operations, Product at Ignition is just as much about people as it is about radiators.
