Senior Product Owner Bridging Technology and Business

ITIL - Product, Service & Process Owner

Job Req Number:  38850 
Time Type: Full Time

Join our new team
We currently have one development team in our department, and we are looking to scale our competencies by building a new team. You will be an integral part of this new team by filling the role of a Product Owner and Team Lead for a new team that will resemble the existing team we have in the Data & Analytics unit in DSV. In your role, you will work across many disciplines by contributing to the following activities:

  • Requirements gathering & specification
  • Backlog prioritization
  • Stakeholder management
  • Test management (not as a dedicated test manager, but as a facilitator)
  • Product roadmap definition
  • Facilitation of the agile development process and ceremonies

The use cases
The focus of our team is to build advanced end-2-end solutions that create direct business value for DSV’s divisions, including for example:

  • Address validation: Validation of spelling and correctness of addresses, including adjustments to the address based on analytics and information retrieval
  • And many more to come…

The word “advanced” is used to underline that the use cases we solve tend to have a high degree of complexity, requiring non-deterministic problem solving (i.e. the use of ML/AI), near real-time data processing, a need for high availability, vertical and horizontal scalability and a very high volume of transactions. However, fancy technologies and accurate ML models do not solve the issues at hand alone; we strive to combine our competencies to build holistic solutions where the underlying complexity is hidden for the user to create simple and value-adding experiences.

Learn new stuff from knowledgeable colleagues – and to have fun while working
You will gather requirements together with business experts, balancing the need for understanding the details and complexity of their work with the ability to see how this could be solved differently and smarter in the future. Moreover, you will:

  • Determine and prioritize PI goals and Sprint goals together with the business owners, but also to validate these together with the team by estimating work and breaking down the team’s capacity to make sure we don’t overpromise
  • Drive the team forward by structuring the requirements into epics and user stories and to prioritize the backlog
  • Facilitate the agile development process and the agile ceremonies as part of the process
  • Plan ahead by thinking about what needs to be tested to ensure the solution lives up to agreed acceptance criteria (functional and non-functional)
  • Break down requirements into iterations so they can deliver value quickly in MVP versions before they are enriched with more nice-to-have functionality in later iterations
  • Deliver nice user experiences for real users that make a difference to everyday work experience
  • Take a lot of responsibility
  • Reach out to others for help or clarifications whenever you need it and to ensure alignment with others
  • Assess the need for reusability with speed and simplicity in the current implementation to find the right balance

Our team
We want your help to transform our development team into a collective unit of two development teams. Currently, we are one ambitious team with a flat hierarchy and a mix of young and very experienced persons, who are working according to the following principles:

  • We celebrate victories together
  • We take responsibility for mistakes and learn from them 
  • We design for scale but build only for the near future
  • We value working software and informal alignment over tedious documentation 
  • For high-risk areas with complex business logic, we acknowledge the need for more detailed specification 
  • We make decisions based on knowledge and insight rather than hierarchical structures
  • Decisions are taken in conversations between people with different competencies (not one person)
  • Everyone can speak their honest opinion

We have all the needed competencies to build awesome products inside the team:

  • Product owner
  • Business analysts
  • Application developers (frontend + backend)
  • Data engineers
  • Data scientists
  • ML engineers
  • DevOps engineers
