Delivery Associates (DA) is the leading public sector advisory group focused on implementation of large-scale reform and tackling some of the world’s biggest challenges such as climate change. 

Delivery Associates Digital combines agile development with delivering results on citizen outcomes. Our suite of digital reporting, dashboard, and operational management tools support and drive delivery for many of the world’s most important policy issues, helping governments and organizations move at start-up speeds with greater agility.

We make a point to bring empathy to each and every project; and are guided by our mission to build effective systems and maximize the delivery of resources to people.

If our mission excites you and you feel confident about your ability to contribute to transforming outcomes for people through data and technology, then we would love to hear from you.

General Role Description - Product Manager

This role requires an ability to partner with organizations from the public sector, multilaterals, and philanthropies to develop products that will drive measurable impact through data collection, progress monitoring and targeted problem solving. An ideal candidate would be able to work across functional and technical teams, translate business requirements to technical specifications (and vice versa), and run multiple work streams efficiently and effectively. This role will regularly collaborate with non-technical peers and clients; and be expected to semi-regularly brief and engage with stakeholders working in public sector contexts.  

All successful candidates must demonstrate an interest in delivering meaningful, measurable results. They will also have a thirst for learning about delivery and the Deliverology® approach, which is the basis for DA’s work around the world.

  • Demonstrated experience with lean startup methodologies, agile development methodologies, and working directly with clients/users
  • Experience of leading a full product lifecycle and expanding digital practices, including identifying opportunities, defining product vision and strategy, producing outcome-driven roadmaps and managing backlogs, and delivering support
  • Direct experience with clients - understanding the needs of a project, along with trends and opportunities in the space
  • Deep understanding of user testing - user empathy and user experience sensibilities to articulate and test product hypotheses
  • Demonstrated ability to lead and improve user experience and engagement of existing products through an iterative and consultative process
  • Demonstrated ability to define and track measurable success criteria including KPIs
