Humatica is the leading award-winning specialist advisor helping private equity funds and entrepreneurial portfolio company leaders to build strong organisations that deliver alpha.

Working with hundreds of portfolio companies for over 18 years, we have codified the management practices and operating models that drive value creation. Our unique tools, services and data enable organizations to achieve audacious goals.

We work across all industries predominantly in Europe, but also in North America and Asia Pacific, with offices in London and Zurich.

We are looking for a Product Manager who is passionate, entrepreneurial and motivated to own the development of our digital products and product marketing.

Overview of the digital products:

Humatica is looking to significantly improve both existing products and new products in 2022 and as Product Manager you will have the responsibility for driving and delivering these developments. Concerning existing tools, there are two primary software tools in place: altus and modas. We are currently also considering new software tools for development.

Our flagship tool, altus, uses survey data to pinpoint organisational issues within a company and provide actionable feedback to managers across the firm. The result is increased engagement and improved organisational agility.

modas enables smart dimensioning of the organisation for future success. In a turbulent business environment, having the right resources allocated to the right activities is crucial for market success. modas enables resources to be allocated fairly and efficiently within the company.

Regarding the newer tools that are currently being considered - we are excited to discuss them with you!
