Job Description

The Role

The Bucharest Tech Hub is central to LucaNet’s exciting transformation to a cloud native SaaS platform. It was founded in 2023 to drive the evolution of our Corporate Performance Management product and cement our place as a leader in the industry. Our transformation roadmap is the blueprint to the success of the project and relies on the work of our German and Romanian teams.

The Product Owner is responsible for ensuring the adopting of our product transformation roadmap, migrating the current monolithic desktop application to a modern cloud-based Software as a Service solution. You will work with 2 software development teams consisting of BAs, QAs, Software Engineers and a Delivery Manager.

What you'll do

  • Responsible for ensuring product features are scoped, planned and delivered on time.
  • Work closely with our subject matter experts and Business Analysts to gather requirements and translate them into user stories for the product backlog.
  • Responsible for managing and maintaining the product backlog and ensuring strategic alignment with the product vision.
  • Collaborate with product management during discovery, market research and competitor analysis tasks.
  • Working with customers and internal stakeholders to understand customer need and translate into product requirements and capabilities.
  • Build deep domain knowledge about our solution and actively drive our product roadmap.

What you bring to the table

Product Management/Ownership experience
You will have experience delivering a new feature or enhancement, through the full product lifecycle. You can work autonomously with cross-functional software development teams to deliver features in line with the product roadmap. You take ownership and accountability of the product backlog.

Agile Project Delivery
As a Product Owner, familiarity with Agile principles and the Scrum framework is crucial. You can provide examples of user story creation, backlog management, sprint planning, and collaborating with development teams.

Stakeholder Management
You have experience managing a variety of stakeholders and their expectations. You are able to effectively communicate with technical and non-technical stakeholders to ensure alignment of our product vision and customer requirements.

Problem Solving/Process Improvement
You are able to identify areas of process improvement and implement new processes to improve our current ways of working. You can provide prior examples of leading initiatives from a Product Owner perspective. You are able to provide context into the area that needed improvement, the initiative that was taken and the impact that this had on the overall processes/ project you were working on.
