If so, our AgileAssets’ division is looking for people like you to join our established team of Product Owners to lead and manage AgileAssets software implementation projects with a focus on scope through backlog creation and management.

The successful candidate must be able to lead product activities by following defined discovery, planning and scoping from project inception to close, yet have the experience to know how to handle these situations differently for each client and their unique culture and needs.

  • Manage and direct the daily execution to assure that the scope is clear, ensuring that contract requirements are met and timely closeout of projects happens.
  • Drive the daily execution of scope of work for the integrated enterprise software solution development team (kick-off through project close) to meet contract requirements.
  • Formally identifies, assesses, and monitors the project scope.
  • Research and determine the clients’ needs to determine which features to include in product implementation.
  • Product Owners will then continue to act as the primary contact between the scrum teams, development team(s) and stakeholders.
  • Collaborate closely with both the scrum and product development teams to ensure the products meet specific objectives as outlined by stakeholders and clients.

What Skills & Experience You Should Bring:

  • Minimum of three to five years’ verifiable experience managing large projects/programs of a similar scale and scope ($1+ Million budget, 18-month duration working across a large public department agency).
  • Minimum of five years’ verifiable experience working as a Product Owner or Subject Matter Expert (EAM or ERP is preferred), and experience working with large multinational companies and national governments
  • Self-starter with a technical background preferred, in order to understand and manage scope, while at the same time limiting scope creep.
  • In-depth knowledge of Scrum and Agile Software Development Methodology a plus.
  • Working knowledge of product development architecture.
  • Ability to prioritize work effectively.
  • Solid understanding of design quality standards.
  • Must be able to operate at the highest levels within the client organizations, such as Steering Committees, and the lowest levels on the project team including developing the requirements and appropriate procedures and scripts/code for conversion and interfaces.

Salary & Benefits:

  • Competitive salary that is dependent upon your experience and location but will be market leading
  • Bonus potential of up to 6% of base salary
  • Income Protection Arrangements
  • Company Pension Scheme
