Product Owner

  • Role: Product Development
  • Commitment: Fulltime
The mission of this awesome tribe at MEDIAGENIX is to enable renowned public and commercial radio and TV stations, on-demand platforms, OTT streamers and telcos to bring content to the viewer with our broadcast management system called WHATS’ON.

At the intersection between business, technology, and user experience, you and the Product Manager are the agile driving force behind the success of a MEDIAGENIX software domain. While it could be said that the Product Manager is the voice of the customer and you are the voice of the product, the fact is that when you join forces, product strategies get translated into very effective product tactics. You take it from there with the cross-functional Agile development team to design and develop the product innovation that makes MEDIAGENIX a natural partner to leading Media & Entertainment companies on a worldwide basis.

Your Challenge

  • You closely collaborate with the Product Manager — whose primary focus is more on product vision, strategy, and roadmap — to translate the product objectives and high level epics on the roadmap into product features.
  • Once you have decided on the product features, you consult with the product development team — analysts, architects, developers, testers, … with whom you work very closely — to translate the features into actionable user stories and tasks.
  • You document product features and user stories.
  • You make sure the product and feature requirements are clearly understood and executed.
  • You plan the product releases and achieve consensus with the development teams through ‘product increment planning events’ in close collaboration with the Product Manager.
  • Per product objective, you oversee development, testing and validation and you demo the progress of the products to internal and external stakeholders.
  • You coordinate the cooperation with UX design
  • You own the team backlog of features and stories​, which means you groom and prioritize the work in the backlog across the subsequent sprints.
  • You are the single point of contact for everything related to product objectives and for responding to questions from the development team. 

Our Wishlist

  • You have a degree in IT or economics (or equivalent qualifications thanks to experience in the IT or broadcast industry).
  • You are experienced in product ownership and software development practices, proficient in Agile frameworks, and business savvy.
  • You are a decision-maker who knows how to communicate effectively as a team player.
  • With your strong analytical mind you are good at problem-solving and prioritizing.
  • You are a quick learner.
