The Team

Performics Labs is a newly created team within Performics with the remit of developing and evolving our global performance product at speed. The Performics Labs team is comprised of two connected elements: a sub-team focussed on innovation and a sub-team focussed on scaling, with this role sitting within the innovation sub-team. The innovation sub-team is intended to take three key inputs – Performics market needs, martech landscape developments and longer-term strategic objectives – and translate these inputs into product MVPs that can be piloted within the markets and, if suitable, pushed to the scaling sub-team to fully productise. The focus for this sub-team is on speed and agility, with an aspiration to deliver a double-digit number of MVPs each year. The innovation sub-team is UK-based and will connect closely with the UK Technology & Intelligence (T&I) team, sharing a common operating framework and infrastructure in order to optimise efficiency.
