 Your New Company
The Software Product Owner will join a leading technology company with a highly-specialised product range. They operate across a range of industries on a global scale. This firm flies under the radar locally, as they compete outside UK markets. But don't be fooled, they produce ground-breaking technologies and boast world-class engineers.
 
Your New Role
The Software Product Owner plays a key role within the Software Engineering Team. You are the 'voice of the customer', representing their product requirements and articulating these to your engineers. You will liaise with the Product Management group (NI + Europe), gathering high-level product requirements / vision. You will translate these requirements into detailed user stories + acceptance criteria, to be actioned by the Agile software development teams. Unlike a 'classic' Product Owner role; you will also wear the Scrum Master's hat – holding Agile ceremonies (sprint planning, standups, retros), and owning the board.
 
Your Skills & Experience
To succeed in the Software Product Owner role, you will need a number of years' experience as a Product Owner in an Agile product-development environment. You will be very comfortable producing high-quality user stories + acceptance criteria (ideally using cucumber / gherkin syntax) for complex products / systems. You should have a strong understanding of Agile methods (Scrum) and will have worn the Scrum Master's hat as part of your role. It would be great if you had experience working in a Behaviour-Driven Development environment and exposure to SaaS. Product Owner certifications would be a bonus!
 
You Will Get
The Software Product Owner will join a growing team that has hired 2 Product Owners in the last 12 months. You will work closely with these experienced POs and the Software Development Manager, honing your Product Owner skills. You will work with extremely talented engineers (with PHD's!) and gain deep knowledge of the company's best-in-class products. Salary £40-50k.
