TITLE: PRODUCT OWNER

TYPE: CONTRACT-TO-HIRE

LOCATION: TAMPA, FL (Onsite 3 days/week)

SALARY UPON CONVERSION: $130k MAX

JOB SUMMARY:

Product owner is the leader responsible for maximizing the value of the products created by a the development team. They will lead collaborative working sessions, leveraging a big picture outlook and systems thinking to bring order to messy and incomplete information. The successful product owner will be an expert at understanding and anticipating the client's needs to manage the development process more effectively.

Their deep market knowledge and communication skills allow them to anticipate problems or needs and address them. They will play a key role in guiding the client, a business leader with big innovation needs, to imagine unique and original opportunities to create value.


RESPONSIBILITY 1

Defining the vision:

  • The agile product owner is the point person on the product development team, using their high-level perspective to define goals and create a vision for development projects.
  • Product owners are responsible for communicating with stakeholders across the board, including customers, business managers, and the development team to make sure the goals are clear, and the vision is aligned with business objectives.
  • Having a product owner with a higher perspective ensures that the team maintains a cohesive vision despite the flexible and often fast-paced nature of agile product development. Everyone needs to be on the same page for a project to work effectively.
  • A product owner can help the team maintain that vision is by creating a product roadmap. The product roadmap is a high-level, strategic visual summary that outlines the vision and direction for the product offering over time. It is both a strategic guide for stakeholders to refer to as well as a plan for execution.
  • Lead collaborative working sessions, leveraging a big picture outlook and systems thinking to bring order to messy and incomplete information

RESPONSIBILITY 2

Managing the product backlog:

  • One of the most important responsibilities for a product owner is managing the product backlog. This is the development team's project to-do list.
  • The product owner's responsibility is to create the list of backlog items and prioritize them based on the overall strategy and business objectives. Additionally, the product owner will need to map out project dependencies to inform the necessary sequence of development.
  • The product backlog isn't a static to-do list though. It is a live document that should be continually updated based on evolving project needs throughout development.
  • Because the product backlog will change frequently, the product owner must make the list accessible and available to all stakeholders (particularly developers) to ensure optimized performance and project outcomes.

RESPONSIBILITY 3

Prioritizing needs:

  • Another key role of the product owner is to prioritize needs. In other words, they must juggle the triangle of scope, budget, and time, weighing priorities according to the needs and objectives of stakeholders.
  • For example, if the product under development needs to launch within six months, that constrains the scope of the project. As the project evolves, the product owner will have to gauge which areas have flexibility and which don't to determine how and when each iteration and product element will be developed.

REQUIRED:

  • 5+ Years of Product Owner Experience
  • BA / BS in relevant field
  • Must have experience communicating complex requirements to development teams

PREFERRED

  • Certified Agile Product Owner Certification
  • Experience in maufacturing / supply chain industry
  • Experience working on ERP implementations or customizations

INTERVIEW PROCESS:

  • 30 Minutes Phone Screen
  • 1 Hour Panel Interview
  • *Potential* Onsite Interview to Meet the TEam
