Jobs: Do you know any good mobile product managers or strategy people?

Ed Hodges is a man on a mission for Royal Bank of Scotland. He’s the bank’s Head of Mobile for Business & Commercial and he’s hunting for two permanent staff to join him. He dropped me a note to see if I knew anyone appropriate. I’ve a few ideas — indeed, I think there will be a few prospective parties reading this post.

Here’s what he’s looking for:

Role 1:

The Product Owner is responsible for to driving the lifecycle of the growing number of apps we have from inception to live. The person will be managing multiple third-parties in an agile environment to deliver apps across multiple platforms on time.

Role 2:

I also need a Mobile Business Banking app strategist. This person will help us understand our competitive environment, analyse in depth the growing mobile payment ecosystem offering insight and suggestions on RBS’s mobile roadmap.

What do you think? Are any of them up your street? Or perhaps relevant to a friend or colleague?

Both positions are permanent at a mid-senior level and offer the right person the hugely exciting opportunity to help define the future of the burgeoning mobile banking industry.

If you’re interested in talking with Ed and getting some more information, he’s asked that you email me directly and then I’ll forward your note on or simply give you his email. (I didn’t want to publish it here though.)

My email is

Please do pass this around to anyone you think might want to know.
