As Product Owner, you will work closely with the Product Managers to solicit Voice of Customer input around user functional and non-functional needs, including the user experience. You will translate this feedback into detailed requirements, epics and user stories in a clear and consistent way that is readily digestible by the R&D team. In addition, you will help the R&D team understand the wider business context and value associated with functions and features they are working on to ensure that the end product delivers the functionality, experience and value required by our customers. You will be the key conduit for answering functionality and user experience queries from the R&D team, representing the Voice of the Customer and validating these assumptions with other stakeholders to ensure what we deliver aligns to market needs. Acting as the bridge between the Product Managers and the R&D team, you will concentrate on maximising the value of the product, whilst maintaining a good balance between what is technically achievable and what is really needed.

This position is fully remote and you can work from any location within UK.
