A bit about the team
What is Innovation Hub? It is a space in our company where we try new hypotheses, work on new ideas, conduct research, and grow potentially successful products.
There are several teams in the Innovation Hub now, each with their own focus, niche, idea for a product (for example, some projects focus on content marketing, some on the SMM, and so on). We are looking for a person who can help those teams to be fast and effective in their decisions, help them grow, collaborate, and achieve great results.
We see the Head of Innovation Hub as a person who not only builds processes and manages people but also brings completely new ideas to the table, motivates and inspires people to try new things and to be accountable for the results of trying.
