Consumer Product Lead

The way people buy and sell property has changed dramatically in recent years, and with more and more platforms to enable this popping up, we’ve had to adapt rapidly to remain as the UK’s #1 property portal.


Rightmove is the UK's largest property portal, handling over 1.5 Billion visits and advertising 1 Million properties in 2018. Achieving that has been no mean feat in their 19-year history and the journey they’ve been on, especially in the last 5 years, has been a huge one. What was traditionally an offline process - selling property through high st estate agents and renting through letting agents, Rightmove took that process online and allowed buyers and sellers to enjoy wider exposure by not being limited to shop windows.

At Canvas, we’re thrilled to have Melanie McKay, Consumer Product Lead and Head of Design & UX Odeya Noble-Bougay join us to share the story of the journey Rightmove has been on to be more product-led. Bringing experience from places like TFL and Deutsche Telekom, the change they’ve lead has been a huge transformational journey.

During their joint insider talk they’ll look at what being ‘product-led’ even means, as well as discussing some of the biggest challenges they’ve had to overcome on the way - starting simply with agreeing and using consistent language, strengthening their core offering, and taking the time to understand where Rightmove is now and where it needs to get to. They’ll also be sharing what may be the next steps the company will take and how they think it’ll continue to develop.
