What will you be doing?

As a Product Owner, you deliver products that belong to the technical foundations of company goals and to the customer value we wish to deliver through our product. Within the Product Development department, you take full responsibility for the development and lifecycle of products within your portfolio. For this, you actively involve customers, partners and colleagues to discover product opportunities and make these a reality for customers. You do this together with your Scrum team.

Based on product visions, you also collaborate with other Scrum teams to identify opportunities that make these visions a reality, define success criteria, and select the options that lead to maximizing customer value. You always weigh the value of these opportunities against business needs.

You can manage complex matters and business questions, as you have a key role in the process of transitioning from a legacy architecture to futureproof foundations. Together with your colleagues, you have a direct influence on how hundreds of thousands of people work with our product daily!
