WHAT YOU'LL DO

To realize our digital transformation, we need to transform our products, experiences, processes, technology and how we operate. Delivering our clients unrivalled experience of exceptional service, value and flexibility is part of our DNA. We are looking for people who are passionate about Agile ways of working and want to spread this approach within our teams and business processes.

The Product Owner will take end-to-end ownership of Squad goals, set the product roadmap and drives value realization by translating the voice of the customer into product features.

The API & Integrations Product Owner must be a leader who is customer-centric and enjoys working with cross functional teams to ensure the teams deliver exceptional products for their customers with speed and agility.

You will coordinate closely with your Tribe Lead & Tech Area Lead to stay aligned on business goals and make sure your Squad is progressing and delivering against them. You will also represent the voice of the customer, whether internal or external, and make sure that Squad members understand their needs and preferences
