Product Owner - 2+ years exp. / SaaS product
Oscar Technology are EXCLUSIVELY partnering with a Manchester-based Software-as-a-Service firm are looking to add 2 Product Owners to their ever-growing product team.
These guys are developing a massively disruptive platform that targets B2B-type firms that have been served up inflexible & uninspiring technology for years. They are successfully tackling those industry challenges with a very customer-centric user experience that dabbles in gamification, has some very clever AI-powered features and provides very powerful insights with user data.
Where many firms have suffered during the Covid pandemic, our client have excelled because their product has allowed key clients to seamlessly transition to work-from-home contingency plans.
The job in a nutshell
The role essentially orchestrates constant improvements of one of their market leading products, managing requirements from users, clients and stakeholders within the business, keeping on-top of backlogs and working in close quarters with engineering teams, to deliver an awesome user experience.
The Product team is growing so a career path exists for those that have longer term aspirations of promotions. People tend to promoted from within the business into senior positions.
What do they need from you
You will have strong knowledge of product ownership best practice, so be confident in handling stakeholders (requirements, prioritisation of tasks, relationship management, etc); have strong story-writing skills and are solid at defining acceptance criteria. However this position requires people to have an ability to rapidly adapt the reactive nature of their business, so your priorities and roadmaps might shift from time-to-time.
Product Owners are expected to have around 2-ish+ years' experience in a Product Owner position, ideally in a Software or Digital focused business. You need to be hot on your SCRUM knowledge, can setup and manage tools like Jira and can report on sprint progress. Any knowledge or experience of gamification will help you stand apart.
This will be 1-stage, and can be done in person or via Zoom.
Oscar Technology is acting as an Employment Agency in relation to this vacancy.
