Product Manager

Florence Jumpp spent years operating as a Product Manager, without knowing the role existed - a common path into the career. She is now a Senior Product Manager with 4 years of formal product management experience.

Studying Experimental Psychology at Oxford University, Florence developed a deep interest in the intersection between Art and Science. This formed the basis of her product approach, and allowed her to develop a 6th sense for Product. Combined with her experience in identifying, defining and effectively solving problems, Florence has quickly become a great Product Manager.

Beginning her product career reimagining how the world learns at Encyclopedia Britannica, Florence then moved on to advance scientific discovery at Springer Nature. After enriching her natural product instincts with formal product management frameworks and techniques, Florence’s entrepreneurial spirit led her to disrupt the used car industry at Cazoo, and then to offset her Cazoo carbon footprint at BeZero Carbon .
