Product Owner

Job description

Who are we and why should you care?

Teamleader is a SaaS scale-up founded in 2012 in Ghent, Belgium. We offer an all-in-one tool for CRM, sales, project management and invoicing, helping more than 7,000 SMEs work smarter. And we’re growing at rocket speed, and are enjoying every bit of this rollercoaster ride: in just 2 years, we opened 5 new offices in Amsterdam, Berlin, Madrid, Milan and Paris. Our ambition stretches far and beyond: we want to become Europe’s #1 in our industry. Today, our team consists of over 160 people and is still growing strong.


Scale-up, you say? Yes, we are already playing with the big guys. We have the make-it-happen attitude of a startup but the resources and skills of a scale-up. Our team is packed with experts in their field, we have tried-and-tested playbooks to benefit from, and plenty of resources at your disposal to do your job in the best possible way.


To keep fueling our growth, we are looking for a Product Owner for our headquarters in Ghent.

 

This is what you'll do

You are the voice of the customer for the development on one or more Teamleader modules. In this capacity you will:

  • Evangelize the vision of the Teamleader product.
  • Explain the why and value proposition of product features and use cases to marketing, sales and customers.
  • Create new Roadmaps that will address challenges and bring new opportunities.
  • Analyze, understand and document user experiences and workflows.
  • Communicate with key stakeholders, external customers, integrators, marketing, sales, and customer service.
  • Take decisions that will bring the most value to the customer.
  • Facilitate development planning, by creating user stories and choosing priorities.
  • Host internal sprint demo meetings where new features are shown to the organization.

We're lively, not corporate

Looking for a fun, open and stimulating work environment? The quest is over: at Teamleader you get the time and budget to develop yourself at conferences and meetups, you can order takeout from the kitchen for you and your family and enjoy sliding work hours. We really push ourselves to give each and every employee the best possible work-life balance. And let’s not forget the afterwork activities - like a workshop in public speaking - Cava (or beer) Friday and the international fold-ups that always result in big international parties.
