Software House/Leicester/Remote/Hybird

Rare opportunity to get into the world of Product Ownership! My client, a software house based in Leicestershire, is looking to hire a Junior Product Owner to join their team. This is a newly created role and will see you joining a multi-disciplinary team, including software devs, Bas, Testers and Product Owners.

The primary responsibilities of this role include:

  • Acting as the bridge between stakeholders, development teams, and end-users,
  • Ensuring that the software aligns with business goals and user needs.
  • Being responsible for defining and prioritising features, creating user stories, and collaborating with cross-functional teams to deliver high-quality software solutions.

You will work as part of an established Scrum team overseen by the Product Manager. The Scrum team develop the software to the requirements defined by your Product Owner. You will work alongside the business analysts to define features and functionality in small chunks for the developers and test team. The Scrum team includes several developers (including two Technical Leads), a Business Analyst and two testers. This team is led by the Product Manager.

My client is looking for the following:

  • Someone who wants to work on products that genuinely make a difference to people's lives.
  • You will be a good communicator, confident making decisions day to day.
  • Ideally familiarity with software development processes or Agile Methodology, UI/UX Principals
  • You'll have a desire to develop your skills continually. You won't be afraid to pick up a new product, self-learn and ask questions.
  • You are someone who takes pride in their work and is interested in bettering products.
  • You will work closely with the Product Manager who will remain responsible for the product vision and strategy.
  • You will be able to, or learn to, help write and refine software work packages from customer requirements, into a language that software engineers and other stakeholders can understand.
  • You will track progress on the work packages daily, through communication with the software team and through the daily update meetings.
  • You will help the Product Manager review the software development against the acceptance criteria and feedback any issues to the software developers.
  • You will also be able to help answer the software team's questions about the work packages, either from your own knowledge or by liaising with the product manager or other subject matter experts.

This role involves learning a significant amount of domain knowledge and some technical skills over a period of time. They are looking for people who want a long term and stable role with career progression within the organisation rather than a short-term career progression role. You are able to work as part of a team, but can work confidently on your own tasks.

In return for your skills my client is paying between £25000 and £35000 plus benefits.
