Job Description

An exciting new permanent job opportunity for a Product Owner to join a leading international broadcast media technology company in a newly created permanent position.

As Product Owner, you will work closely with Head of R&D and the Software Development Team Leaders to define and manage backlog, writing clear technical requirements and acceptance criteria to enable the successful delivery of software features for a new product the company are developing.  You will also be heavily involved in regular scrum meetings, leading sprints when required and being the primary source of information and expertise internally, whilst providing clarity on both technical and commercial issues when needed.  

In addition, you will help to prioritise work, ensuring completion within agreed timescales whilst helping to set technical strategy and standards within the wider business.  The Product Owner will also be responsible for ensuring that the most up to date technical and product knowledge is circulated through the company. 

To be considered for this role, applicants should have a proven background as a Product Owner, Product Manager or similar role with transferable skills from within the broadcast / media / post production industries with good knowledge and practical exposure to Agile and Kanban development processes.  Any additional experience of microservice based software architectures and cloud native technologies would also be highly advantageous.

This is a great opportunity to join a highly successful organisation with an excellent reputation.  If you feel you have the skills and experience to be successful and you are fully eligible to work in the UK without the need for sponsorship then please apply now for consideration.
