Product Owner

Melbourne

We have partnered with a heavily funded technology start-up (yes, well funded, backed by a big player in town) reforming the mental health ecosystem. This is one of those projects that you will be proud to talk about having played a big part in delivering a product that makes a genuine difference to people’s life and leaves a hugely rewarding social impact. In a nutshell, what you will do here matters.

There are 2 key objectives here: Build a multi-tenant SaaS offering, as well as a universal API gateway. So, you need understand both the engineering and business side of the product development process as you are ultimately responsible for guaranteeing the end user’s needs are understood, validated, represented, and prioritised in the product roadmap.

The Product Owner is responsible for the prioritisation of the work for the product development team to complete. They are responsible for ensuring bottlenecks within the team are removed, the team maintains an appropriate level of focus on current objectives, and all features are user-validated and have quantifiable and measurable success/fail metrics. You will oversee the build of a series of applications across mobile and wearable devices that provide supporting data via secure APIs to the main SaaS offering to create a more accurate snapshot of wellness for each individual user.

What you will get your hands on:

  • Facilitate requirements gathering workshops in conjunction with the wider team to ensure a complete understanding of the end user requirements.
  • Manage user story development and prioritisation of stories into product sprints, then subsequent management of sprint based rituals (standups/retros/sprint planning sessions).
  • Attend the company-product strategy meetings to report on progress, contribute to product strategy conversation, and execute the decided product strategy post-meeting.
  • Post Launch: Work with the broader team to place quantifiable success/fail metrics on each feature and measure the impact on users of these features.
  • Ensure quality assurance is maintained at a high level and feature deployment process is as unencumbered as is possible.

Now onto a bit about you and your background:

  • Experience working as a technical product owner for a multi-tenant SaaS offering
  • Possess a fundamental understanding of end-to-end customer experience integration and dependencies with a practical understanding of Design Thinking and Human-Centered design principles
  • Ability to thoroughly understand complex business and technical issues and influence decision making at all levels of the organisation
  • Demonstrate an ability to frame presentations depending on the audience at hand with ease as well as an ability to impact people and form long-lasting relations

This is a team that is built on high performance, and extensive health research domain knowledge to provide a superior online mental health experience. They will run fast-paced whilst being big on collaboration, idea creation and getting stuff done. Weekly, daily stand-ups mean there is a lot of transparency and they’re big on autonomy and accountability. So, do yourself a favour, click apply to get the ball rolling and I’ll give you a call to discuss the details.
