Product Owner

Reports to: Head of Product

Role Responsibilities:

The Product Owner will work with one or more Scrum teams to maximise the output of such teams.

This will be achieved by:
  • Documenting product requirements at Epic and Story level, working with Product Managers, Architects and Business Analysts to ensure development items can be considered 'Ready for Dev'.
  • Where a new feature or product is prioritised, creating or gathering comprehensive Business Requirements including wireframes and user stories that meet the criteria set by the Scrum Master and Head of Engineering.
  • Working with the Scrum teams to plan, estimate, and curate the backlog for your assigned products and features, leading to more productive and predictable output by the Scrum teams.
  • Prioritising the backlog for your product to deliver value more quickly, especially where a given enhancement can benefit a large portion of the customer base.
  • Actively working to reduce and counteract any blockers which may lead to stories and epics being delayed for release.
  • Keeping abreast with Agile/Scrum best practices and new trends and championing these amongst the teams.

The Product Owner will adhere to and contribute to best working practices and Product Management frameworks by:
  • Always Improving - ensuring adherence to and constant improvement of Product Management frameworks, processes and techniques.
  • Building products our customers love - ensuring that customer feedback is validated before, during and after the development process
  • Working smarter - contributing to the processes that allow the Product team to make data-driven decisions, gathering quantitative (tech-touch) and qualitative feedback (customer interviews).
  • Obsessing over feedback - maintain and constantly revisit a system of record for your product and display a clear track record of iterating based on customer value.

The Product Owner will ensure the needs of the customer are always put first by:
  • Iterating quickly - ensure that each product or feature launch allows for rapid improvements before and after launch.
  • Contributing to the product strategy - acknowledging that the needs of today's customer may not be the needs of tomorrows - and be constantly evolving your thinking and product direction in line with the future needs of the customer.

The Product Owner will contribute to maximising company revenue and strategic goals by:
  • Embarking on business case development and ROI calculation before, during and after a product/feature launch - launching profitable products which directly contribute to an increase in subscription revenues.
  • Supporting the sales and marketing teams by ensuring product catalogues and documentation are kept up to date with the latest system changes and enhancements.
  • Contribute towards a company-wide drive to keep abreast of industry developments and challenges - hosting newsblasts, training, and "lunch and learn" sessions.
  • Striving for a deep market and domain knowledge and being the 'Go To' authority for your product area - leading to better product decisions.
