Founded by Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Professor Sir Nigel Shadbolt the Open Data Institute is driving the agenda for open data.

The ODI technical team works on a range of projects across many different areas, both internal and external.  It is now looking to turn more of these into well-defined products with proper assessment of user needs, sustainable business models and marketing approaches.


To do this we are looking for a creative, tenacious and enthusiastic Product & Project Manager who will provide product ownership, act as an internal client voice, and provide project management support to the ODI team.  You must be able to:

  • create bids and proposals for new products and project work

  • create and implement delivery plans for products and projects

  • share knowledge and ideas and work with technical and non-technical colleagues, members and clients


Reporting to the Technical Director, the role will be part of a development team that  works on web-based projects, using a variety of tools and platforms, but mostly in the Ruby language.

Application instructions are below and you can click here to go to the full role profile to find out more about this unique opportunity to drive and achieve the commercial targets that will grow the organisation.  

As part of your application you will need to submit a two-page written project proposal for an open data product of your choice (this can be something that already exists or something that you would like to see developed). 


The proposal should include:

  • A description of the product
  • Details of how the project would be delivered
  • A costed plan for sustaining the product longer term

Closing date for applications: 12.30pm Friday 21 February 2014
