Sifted is looking for a multi-talented individual who is an exceptional, experienced and highly commercial Product Lead to develop and then drive forward our nascent Data and Insights product set, including for the right candidate full P&L ownership of this part of the business.

Working closely with the founders, you would lead a large part of what Sifted does, joining our fast-growing team of journalists, engineers, designers and data analysts, helping us build a highly engaged startup community and delivering the deepest, richest and most valuable Data and Insight products about and for Europe’s early-stage tech businesses and their partners.


About us

At Sifted, we’re taking a fresh look at Europe’s startup and tech world, and building a diverse readership and community of founders, investors, innovators, thinkers and makers. We want to become the essential, trusted and independent resource for European tech – and our early team members will play a big role in making that happen.

Believing in the power of data we will, through our varied conversations and interactions, encourage our community to contribute data that we can turn into rich, meaningful and actionable information. We hope these insights, shared via our journalism and with our community, will facilitate better understanding, and greater success, of the whole ecosystem.

Simultaneously we will create a variety of Data and Insight products of interest and value to the whole startup ecosystem, built around data from a subscriber base of hundreds of thousands, including tens of thousands of early-stage companies who are engaged members of the Sifted community.

We’re backed by the Financial Times and based at its London HQ, but we work as a small, nimble, independent team. We value interpersonal skills as much as technical skills, and care deeply about supporting each member of our team’s personal growth and development.


The role

You’ll work with the founders to develop and then deliver the roadmap for the commercial Data and Insights side of the Sifted business. A truly successful candidate will turn this role over time from a Product one to a Commercial one with full P&L ownership of this entire side of the business.

The role will include:

As this is a new project, you will have significant say in all that we do in this area, including defining the tools that we use, and the technical architecture that we implement.

The next 12 months

Sifted is a new company with 10 employees. Over the next year we will grow far beyond that, picking up journalists across Europe and expanding the whole team, including your team. As this happens, you’ll have the chance to play a key role in shaping that team.
