Product Owner Mobile Platform
Products | Amsterdam, Netherlands | Full Time
We are looking for a mobile genius, able to help us bring our platform and its mobile capabilities to an even higher gear. Are you excited about introducing mobile payments, connected devices and artificial intelligence to the financial world? We just might have the perfect vacancy for you.
Although your official role is named Product Owner, we expect more. You will be the mobile technology evangelist of the company: introducing the latest and greatest and taking responsibility of using these technologies and convert them into products ready to be used by your customers.
Expect a flexible role with widespread activities, requiring you to be a person ready to pick up challenges in all areas: analysing the market, talking with customers and developers, prioritizing the backlog, planning sprints, validating product quality, giving customer demos, talking in front of audiences and able to implement your own product if needed.
We expect you to be technical, able to discuss and challenge technical matters with software engineers. On the other end, we expect you to be customer facing and a star in communication: both internally with your teams and other teams as well as externally with (potential) customers and partners all over the world.
Current products under your responsibility includes our Mobile SDK. This SDK can be seen as the foundation of our mobile banking apps, delivering amongst others manageability features, enhanced security and the ability to easily reuse components between various channels and platforms.
You will be working in a team consisting of an Android, iOS, back-end and QA engineer and a tech writer. Hence, it includes all disciplines to do the extraordinarily. The team works in an extremely Agile way, works together with other teams within Backbase on a daily basis and have been together for a long time and know exactly what to expect from each other. Like most of the Backbase folk, they are from every part of the world and like to get together outside of working hours. Having dinners, going to Roest for a few beers, doing activities together are things they do regularly.
Defining a profile for such a dynamic role is challenging but you might be the right candidate if:
You have experience with mobile software engineering. We require a candidate with either native Android software development and/or iOS software development experience;
You know what it takes to build secure products and are familiar with things like OWASP, certificate pinning, static code analysis and mechanisms to make mobile apps more secure;
You know Agile and/or Scrum, have been working with JIRA and understand and support the essence of Lean;
You like to talk with customers and build something that matters specifically for them, while always keeping the bigger picture in the back of your head;
You are not afraid to talk in front of bigger audiences to promote your product as part of our customer days;
You like to experiment with new technologies and think about how they can be applied to your product, making them available to your customers in a way that these technologies add value;
You understand a product doesn’t stop after development: writing documentation, delivering training material, providing support and distributing it, are all equally important;
You are flexible if needed but also work in a consistent and reliable way, for example by following predefined release procedures to make sure a certain level of product quality is maintained;
Your English is (close to) excellent;
You are fun person to work with, value spending some time with your colleagues after work and feel comfortable in a diverse and international environment.
