Description

As a Product Owner, you seek to refine an organization’s vision and establish the path to that vision becoming a reality. You have the capacity to see the end goal while balancing the details of all the steps from beginning to end. No detail goes overlooked because nobody is more knowledgeable of the evolution of a project than you. And this all comes easy for you because it’s in your nature to always be delivering value.

A Product Owner at Gavant is engaged at all stages of a project’s lifecycle. Early in the relationship, you'll learn about a client's business, its industry, and the overall need. From there, you’ll contribute ideas through conversation and craft a software system that addresses that need. Throughout development, you’ll communicate with the client to deliver status updates and gather requirements, and with the engineering team to ensure the solution being built meets all delivered expectations. A successful delivery is your primary responsibility. The role requires a strong hybrid of technology awareness, organizational capabilities, and communication skills.

Responsibilities

  • Collaborating with stakeholders to understand and anticipate needs
  • Translating business needs into product requirements
  • Owning the product release schedule in an agile software development environment
  • Defining user stories and managing backlogs
  • Solving problems and making decisions with trade-off analysis to keep deliverables on track
  • Balancing multiple diverse projects is more exciting than a single project
