Product Owner - Digital and Systems

DFDS is 150 years old, but we recently referred to ourselves as the 150-year-old start-up: this is because we are undergoing a digital transformation. DFDS is significantly investing in Digital & IT capabilities, with a vision of the future. Our divisional digital & IT organisation has a broad scope and is designed to bring our freight shipping division swiftly towards a technology driven future.

As Product Owner, you will focus on the vision, requirements and release planning for company-wide digital products and features, and maximize the value of product development. You will inspire your team and stakeholders by bringing together disparate and competing priorities into a clear, compelling roadmap.

You will be responsible for:

  • Defining, championing and communicating the product vision and roadmap

  • Clarifying the vision and goals of the product with other members of scrum teams and ensuring that developers understand requirements

  • Connecting feature development to value streams and prioritising accordingly

  • The product backlog - ensuring that it is visible, communicated and understood by different audiences

  • Deciding when to release the product and services

  • Describing and documenting user stories and defining acceptance criteria

You will work closely with development teams, stakeholders from the business, members of the freight shipping Digital & IT Office. You will be based at our development office in Grimsby, UK and report to our Deputy Digital & IT Officer - Freight Shipping.

We are looking for ambitious and dedicated people to be an integral part of our IT & Digital journey. Successful candidates will join a talented, passionate, and delivery-focused team within the business.
