Growing, fast paced company has an immediate need for a Product Owner. In this role, you will work closely with a very smart and dedicated team of Software Developers, focusing on developing software for the company’s SaaS-based product. The product is external customer-facing, and top quality is extremely important. You will have true autonomy and a self-motivated person is crucial in this role. General duties from A to Z include: gathering requirements and keeping developers "fed," translating roadmaps into user stories, leading daily Scrums with the dev team, making sure the product is ready to be accepted, story mapping, monitoring/supporting the process, facilitating UAT, Agile governance, maintaining/building the product backlog, and doing consistent "look backs" to ensure KPI's were met and "did we achieve the vision?" Note - the Product Manager is the one that actually develops/defines the vision, not this PO.
You must be smart, love what you do, and work well in a fast-paced environment. This is an excellent opportunity. The company offers competitive base salaries, annual bonuses, 401K match, casual dress, flexible work hours, and excellent medical benefits.
- Bachelor's Degree.
- Comfortable working in a fast paced, Agile/Scrum environment, leading Scrums and endorsing Agile governance.
- 2+ years' experience gathering requirements, working closely with software developers, managing product backlogs, planning/facilitating user acceptance testing, and documenting user stories.
- Can facilitate conversations among cross-functional groups.
- Excellent ability to develop relationships, work autonomously, and have attention to detail.
