The Role

Due to continued growth we’re now looking to recruit a highly motivated, experienced and enthusiastic Product Owner to guide the development of our chiliZ Platform.

As a PO you will develop and maintain a vision for the product from the customers, users and stakeholders’ point of view. Responsible for communicating that vision to the Scrum team, you will also be in charge for the product and product features from conception to fruition. Working closely with product marketing and development teams too, you will ensure that business, quality and functional goals are met with each product release.

The PO is responsible for the design, usability, quality and delivery of a product or feature, and as the key decision maker of priorities, design, and works, you will ensure that all stakeholders are aligned to each stage of the development lifecycle.

Finally, you understand both the engineering and business side of the product release and ultimately responsible for representing the end user’s needs.

  • Ensure that the development team always has an adequate amount of prior prepared tasks to work on.
  • Must continuously engage the customer and stakeholders to ensure the Team is building the right product and therefore delivering the ROI expected.
  • Act as an ambassador for the product internally and externally, and as the primary technical contact for queries related to the product.
