Product Owner (m/f/d/-)

With your faible for organising and your passion for creating amazing digital products, you (and your team) bring ideas to life!

What you'll do

  • Overall, you are in charge of the successful implementation of the product and move all obstacles out of your way
  • You proactively collect all relevant information (feedback, input, requirements) from the right people at the right time, and provide it to others in the most suitable way
  • You and the client jointly create a product roadmap according to the set vision and strategy, including all important milestones and the release plan, and regularly check the progress and define next action steps
  • You make sure the deliverables are being delivered at the right time to the right stakeholders
  • You prioritise tasks in research, concept, design, development etc. in consultation with the client (PO / PM / CEO etc.) by keeping an eye on the roadmap
  • You assure the development tickets’ level of detail is adequate
  • You know all tasks by heart and regularly check if the planned capacities fit your requirements, and work closely with our project managers to make sure everything goes as planned
  • Your overall goal is the smooth cooperation of all stakeholders: You search for the best way of working together, the right meeting formats, and the most effective tools to get the job done
  • You identify possibilities to support our clients with additional services and communicate them proactively to the project manager
  • You keep track of your teams’ expenditures within the different product phases, and thus support our sales process with accurate estimations

What you bring

  • You have at least 2 years of experience as a product owner, or in a related position within the field of digital product management and development (e.g. product or project manager, quality assurance, UX design or development)
  • You have a good understanding of the tasks, challenges and milestones that need to be involved when building a successful product
  • You’ve already worked with frameworks like SCRUM, and terms like backlog, acceptance criteria, definition of ready, definition of done etc. are no strangers to you
  • You are used to diving deeply into all product concepts and ask the right questions
  • Your structured way of working and communicating with others is among your top 3 skills
  • You are a nerd for great organising tools like kanban boards (Jira, Linear etc.), and your documentation screams “transparency, no redundancy!”
  • Your profound language skills in both German and English enable you to discuss properly and have conversations with all levels of stakeholders

Nice to have

  • You are the proud owner of a PO certificate
  • You were mainly responsible for the success of a digital product in the past
  • You have experience with leading a team
  • You’ve already worked for or with different clients – from small and agile to big and bureaucratic
