Your Profile

    • Required: Very good communication skills. But seriously: You’ll talk to engineering, stakeholders, product marketing, sales, customer success and many other teams. All of them have a different perspective on the product and that’s a good thing. However, you’ll need to be able communicate goals and use cases to all people involved.

You’ll be the best friend of every capability until it’s shipped to our customers. This is where the maximization of user-value comes in. You’ll accompany a capability from its conception, through the design process, user-experience, realization and testing. You’ll hold the hand of capabilities from start to finish. Even when they’re released into the wild, you’ll keep an eye on how they’re doing out there. 

Our development teams are using different agile approaches and we have regular retrospectives to continually make adjustments. It’s important to us that we don’t get stuck with processes. To combat this, we tailor our environment to how we like to work, to be able to work efficiently. If you already worked in successful agile teams, we’re looking forward to your ideas.
