Here’s what we’re looking for

As a Product Owner (PO) you work in a cross-functional agile team on a scalable web or Windows application that helps many schools around the world to manage their school day. You put your expertise to work for a good cause that benefits millions of people in the education industry. You research and analyze the market and spend a lot of time with users, the support team, and our sales partners to develop a deep understanding of our customers' needs. You elaborate user stories, plan and prioritize the product backlog and define the product vision, roadmap and growth opportunities. You contribute to the company-wide vision and guide new features from ideation to release and documentation. You track our competitors and the industry.

  • We are also developing one of the most successful native mobile applications for iOS and Android, in the school organization sector.
  • We have ambitious goals and need your help to achieve them together as a team. In some areas of cooperation, be it communication, processes or structures, we have not yet reached the level where we would like to be, but we are already on a very good path.

Essential skills for your mission

  • First and foremost, we are looking for smart people who enjoy their work and are a pleasure to work with.
  • Professional experience in a product development environment including designing and developing technical solutions in agile projects.
  • You have a passion for education and helping schools go digital
  • You are very good at prioritizing and are familiar with processes/tools that facilitate this
