I'm also the Product Owner on a B2B SaaS platform created in-house. I was responsible for the specification and development of the initial release, and I manage ongoing improvements, feature strategy, and production pipelines. Along with this, I championed the creation of support services that accompany the platform, ensuring the process of onboarding and requests are handled smoothly from start to finish.

Overview

At Butterfly, we have a wide range of active projects and ongoing client work covering web, apps, and digital strategy.

In my agency life, I perform the role of a 'Digital Producer', which is a hybrid role that combines the skills of a Business Analyst with a Project Manager. I love nothing more than seeing product and business goals met through the delivery of features—particularly after working closely with my team through design/development/QA/DevOps.

I enjoy the opportunity in my day to day to:

  • Manage projects from start to finish (experience with software upgrades, feature updates, and new builds)
  • Strategise and implement digital production roadmaps
  • Work closely with clients and the Butterfly team
  • Communicate requirements to different departments and ensure comprehensive understanding
  • Work through design and development challenges and find solutions that align with goals (and fit within constraints)
  • Provide safe spaces for project discussion and brainstorming
  • Maintain comprehensive documentation
  • Constantly reassess and reprioritise tasks, whilst maintaining focus
  • Find the balance between shipping work within time/budget, but completing to standards the team are proud of

One of my favourite tasks is to lead discovery sessions in a production and business analyst capacity—I relish the chance to discuss ideas, uncover requirements, and bring them into a cohesive whole. This is a challenging but fantastic process to go through, and my generalist background allows me to clearly communicate expectations amongst a diverse team.

My main (and most fulfilling) priority is to ensure that the wonderful team I work with has everything they need to complete their tasks, and that they are motivated and happy to come into the office each day.
