What is my challenge ?

We provide a working environment for everyone to contribute in their best way.

As our Product Manager/ Owner, you will:

  • Feed and maintain the Github product backlog with business priorities
  • Break down complex problems into requirements and steps that drive product development
  • Create user stories: Gather requirements and ensure every voice is heard, organize our users’ feedbacks, and talk with our customers/leads / Dev / Ops/founder and Sales team to enrich our backlog with their knowledge and needs
  • Follow up solutions from conception to delivery from insights to user stories to releases, specify and test your features… and ensure they are launched properly
  • Work together with Design, QA, and our Ops to define detailed specifications

  • Create a “test and learn” mindset: you test three iterations before you build one, track the features’ metrics and iterate on those
  • Infuse Agile culture and customer-centricity
  • Ensure our product is competitive in the market and remains current with emerging advertising standards and specs
  • Provide annually, quarterly, monthly and weekly reports of the evolution, status, and date of release
