Product owner wanted

Are you ready to embark on your next adventure at our fast-paced and faster-growing startup studio? For our most mature endeavour Smart.pr, we’re looking for a gifted Product Owner that loves to ship gracefully. You’ll join us in our office in the heart of Amsterdam, working with a talented bunch of developers, designers and our great customer happiness crew. Voicing the needs of the user, you’ll be the driving innovative force behind our product.

 

You are the eyes and ears of our user base. Based on research, experimentation and testing, you voice its wants and needs and convert these into features that optimize our product. This means your curiosity is insatiable and your analytical skills are supreme. And as you’ll interact with people from all corners of the organisation, you’re eager to learn, quick on your feet and above all: a multifaceted team player. You connect the dots between user feedback and company strategy, always showing commercial awareness. You have a great feel for design and a good understanding of product development. Plus you know how to execute. Of the thousands of ideas pouring from all sources of our organization, you decide and prioritize what’s best. This makes you the driving force behind product innovation.

Others say your creativity, energy and motivational character are unmatched. In an ever-changing environment, you gracefully guide your team from that scruffy start in ideation right on towards the light at the end of the tunnel where features get shipped. You care about what you do, making hard choices about everything from tiny projects to the entire roadmap along the way, keeping focus and morale at their peaks. Lastly, you have a degree in tech, design or UX, you’re fluent in English and you have a few years of experience in a similar role at a product-based SaaS company.

 

Next to just being Smart.pr, we are Startup Studio Nescio as well

Together with our talented team, we plant and grow our own tech companies. And we have lots of fun in the meantime. Our most grownup endeavour is Smart.pr, founded 9 years ago. The company is in full bloom and serves a growing user base of international corporate clients, brands and agencies. We ship the absolute best and above all daringly simple PR tool on the planet. And now we aim to expand our global presence.

This is where you come in. We need a tech-driven design-loving product-owning go-getter to make our product even simpler, more fun and more effective. We’re looking for the wit and skill able to question and improve our international strategies, taking our platform, its design and our team to the next level. All based on solid user testing, collaboration, feedback and a laser focus.

Of course you’ll take on this challenge together, working with our teams in strategy, development, design and customer success on a daily basis. And as you’ll put the end user at the heart of everything you do, you’ll also connect with PR professionals from international organisations ranging from KLM to Red Bull regularly. Because of your efforts, these people are able to manage their public relations, send their press releases and monitor their work better and better. And they’ll love you for making that possible!

 

Tasks and job areas that you’ll work on include…

  • Putting the end user at the core of everything we do in product innovation;
  • Crafting actionable insights from strategy, research & user tests, development & design, sales & support;
  • Caringly guiding the product team in sprints and roadmaps, together with Smart.pr’s founders;
  • Funnelling loads of ambiguous information and converting it to a creative, simple and amazing product;
  • Optimizing our research, design, develop, test & deploy cycles and other iterative innovation processes;
  • Expanding in Europe and crossing the Big Blue, making Smart.pr the leading PR tool on the planet;
  • Having loads of fun with your Nescio colleagues, working from our beautiful office in Amsterdam’s city centre;

 

Sounds like a fun challenge? We’d love to hear from you. Please send a few words about your drive to work together to mark@nescio.co and we’ll be in touch. Please include a recent C.V. Thank you!
