Product Owner

The role

As our Product Owner, you’ll join our highly driven team to represent the fusion of technology with business insight and work to build bespoke software applications that are tailor-made to suit our clients’ needs. In this role, you’ll work confidently alongside account managers and clients, using your knowledge of technology and software development to formulate solutions that meet our clients’ expectations.

Your role will be to analyse client requirements, and identify and implement suitable technological solutions that anticipate future client needs. With highly technological knowledge, you should have the skills to look at clients’ business problems and come up with creative ideas that exceed the original proposal. Playing a key role in turning client visions into effective processes, you’ll manage the entire lifecycles of projects to ensure they are technically sound, fit for purpose and delivered on time to the highest standards. 

The role is ideal for an experienced developer who is looking to move away from implementing solutions to devising them, or for a passionate and technically-minded project manager. This individual will need to have the ability to interact with clients and account handlers at a variety of levels across functions, as well as manage client expectations to ensure their satisfaction. They will also need to have a keen interest in technology, and a strong desire to learn and keep on top of the latest trends. Experience with projects involving machine learning or AI would be beneficial but are not compulsory.
