We started Bboxx to tackle a major global problem: energy poverty. Currently, 840 million people live without access to energy, of which 650 million are in Africa. An additional billion people are connected to an unreliable grid.
We design, manufacture, distribute and finance decentralised energy solutions.
We are a vertically integrated business and our business model is based: our physical (distribution network) and digital (Bboxx Pulse) highways, our bold technology (hardware and software), and our partnerships.
Our Bboxx Pulse® platform enables next generation utility businesses to scale and reach their customers that are dispersed across remote locations.
We are expanding and scaling by forging strategic partnerships with governments and world-class corporates.
The Product Manager Connect is responsible for setting up pay-as-you-go smartphones as a new line of business for Bboxx by building an ecosystem of partner companies to allow our customers to connect to the mobile internet in an affordable and reliable way. The Bboxx Connect product offering consists of four elements:
The PM Connect should have a deep passion for understanding customer needs and translating those into attractive and competitive products. The person in this role must have a versatile skill set which includes project management, market analysis and basic business modeling. He/she should be an excellent communicator and equally comfortable presenting to Bboxx executives in a boardroom as to talking to customers in rural areas.
The PM Connect will be responsible for end-to-end product management (from idea to launch) coordinating across all teams at Bboxx including Market Research, Sourcing, Supply Chain, Finance and the operational local teams across our African markets. He/she will also work closely with the other members of the Product Innovation team which are responsible for Bboxx’ Power, Cook and VAS business lines, and with the Pulse team which will facilitate the integration of the locking software and the development of the Bboxx customer app.
Set a roadmap for the project scale up to grow the business line in a sustainable manner (including all stage gates such as business model approval, requirements definition, final pilot report and launch package)
We look to recruit individuals from all different backgrounds and encourage you to apply to roles you are passionate about, even if you are still developing your skills. We strive to create an inclusive environment and regularly celebrate the diversity of our people through events arranged by our Culture Committee. Bboxx provides a workplace where you can be your authentic self and focus on our mission of transforming lives and unlocking potential through access to energy!
