RemoteNetherlands, Utrecht, UtrechtDevelopment team
Do you want to become part of a fast-growing travel scale-up in the sharing economy? Do you want to work with an international team of passionate people with a passion for travel? Then join our growing team! Be part of the leading motorhome sharing platform in Europe, and have a positive impact on how people spend their leisure time.
We are looking for a new Product Owner to be the linking pin between (the features of) our platform, the business and our developers and analysts.
Right up your alley?
You’ll join a team of developers, growth hackers and analysts. We’re all working towards the same goal, so there’s a lot of back and forth, sharing ideas, daily learnings and working closely together. As part of the Product team, you’re building the Goboony platform, website and mobile applications and will turn insights from other teams into creative applications.
Why would you do it?
We've got an amazing and collaborative team to work with in a fast-paced and hyper growth company. That means you'll get a LOT of ownership - and freedom - in everything you do. Our platform is the heart of the company and you'll have direct impact to tweak and optimize it to our devoted customers needs.
We're currently open in 6 countries and more will follow... That means you need to stay up your feet in an ever-changing IT landscape -> bring it on!
This could be your day
As our product owner, you check the progress of the sprint during the morning standup. You will answer one or two questions from the engineers that came up during development. At 10:00h, you might sit down with the marketing team to discuss the new wishes they have regarding landing pages.
There are some cool ideas that can really boost the conversion of new travelers. You will pick those up later with our UX designer. After lunch (and a short walk along the canals of Utrecht), you have a meeting with our data scientist about improving the search functionality in the platform. You end your day by finalizing the specifications of a new feature called ‘Recommendations’, and ask the development team to investigate the technical specs for this. Lastly, you talk to the Head of Product about a new idea that came in from the support team that you really like, and check the priority on it.
Meet some of the people you will work with
The Product team and Development team work closely together. That means we are a pretty big and integrated team with about 12 developers and 4 product specialists (both expanding). This is a head-office role, in which we serve our local country teams (6 countries at the moment, and counting). The data team is closely attached too, as well as the CRO team. The product team is the spider in the web, connecting new ideas with our company goals, and formulating the roadmaps for the different parts of our platform.
What do you like to do & what have you already done
You love to stay on top of things: keeping an eye on the delivery of work by the development team, and helping them with any questions or blockers. At the same time, you easily switch into a more strategic mindset and join in discussions about stimulating growth and increasing the value of the platform for our users.
Our user community is very engaged and loves the freedom of motorhome traveling, which is an amazing target audience to work for. It helps if you understand the dynamics of a two-sided marketplace, having worked in a similar role before. Although we value attitude over knowledge: there is nothing that can’t be learned.
You would be a great product owner if you can bring to the table:
a structured approach: there’s a lot on your table and you need to keep an overview
a sense for what users would like and how to design nice software (we highly value great design and simplicity)
an eager attitude: there is so much to learn about our users, but also about platform theory and marketplace growth. We are discovering as we go.
- A Bachelors' degree or equivalent.
- A minimum of 2 years of relevant work experience in the field of IT / PO position or within a digital agency.
- You’re fluent in English.
- Great in detailed working, overseeing the bigger picture in the midsts of some (really some) chaos.
- Perfect stakeholder management skills, you'll need the support of your team.
