Head of Product

Glisser makes presentations interactive, engaging audiences and collecting valuable data for presenters, trainers and event organisers. Our goal is to revolutionise the way presentations are made around the world, transforming them from one-directional lectures into two-way conversations with true audience participation. The engagement metrics our solution generates allow our customers to make their meetings more easily measurable, and more effective as a result.

We are building a MarTech Enterprise SaaS business around our core technology. Our product is simple to set up, straightforward for audiences to access and understand, and ‘just works’.

Since launching five years ago we’ve generated significant brand recognition in our industry, won multiple awards, and closed deals with some major clients including Novartis, Simmons & Simmons and Microsoft. We’ve expanded from our head office in London, now with sales offices in New York City and Portland, Oregon, and further global ambitions.

We’re looking to hire our first Head of Product to work directly with our CEO, our CTO and our 300+ customers, to develop Glisser into the de facto platform for turning offline engagement into meaningful online analytics.
