You relish the challenge of working in a dynamic, fast moving environment. Your excellent prioritisation skills, coupled with your meticulous attention to detail, make owning the product features from start to end feel like second nature to you.

  • Leading the planning product release plans and setting expectation for delivery of new functionalities;
  • Managing the product backlog (owning the product backlog and ensuring it is managed and prioritised with business value);
  • Performing impact analysis and reviewing developed features;
  • Making product related decisions and working with the product management team to plan releases;
  • Preventing reoccurring and repetitive failures;
  • Identifying and implementing processes that increase efficiency in testing, developing and releasing updates;
  • Working on the overall product road-map and performing competitive, feature specific analysis;
  • Ensuring high functionality in the product health area (quality, scalability, performance, infrastructure needs);
  • Engaging with stakeholders across the business in terms of understanding business priorities, communicating progress and managing expectations in line with the roadmap;
  • Participating in product council meetings and presenting any new changes and features to the business.

Requirements:

  • A solid understanding of SaaS technology and products;
  • A technical background with experience in SaaS solutions, with experience with CI/CD (continuous integration / continuous delivery);
