Senior Product Owner - Payments

Drive the future of payments in one of our most complex products, Business Banking. You’ll oversee 3 cross-functional squads and take end to end ownership over final deliverables for mobile and web payments to millions of end customers.

What you'll do

As Product Owner at Backbase, you’ll own payments capabilities in our omnichannel Business Banking platform. From end to end, you get to manage your set of features through the complete product life cycle: from defining new requirements and user stories to creating the first prototype, to launching the new features with real customers in production.

By believing in a Lean startup approach to product development, you’ll stay focused on a constant cycle of feedback and aim to bring the most value to our customers with minimal effort. You strive to help your team members in doing their best work and are empowered by new ideas and creativity.

You might also find yourself:
● Engaging with potential and existing customers to help drive product growth
● Running your squad your way, introducing new initiatives to drive performance
● Working closely with our Product Manager on defining the roadmap
● Creating clear epics and user stories that help our dev teams create user centered experiences
● Organizing squad celebration events because who doesn’t like to celebrate achievements
● Translating customer opportunities and pain points into detailed product requirements.

Still here? Good! We are glad you know what it means to solve complex, functional and analytical problems, and that you have our customer top of mind. Please apply and we’re looking forward to meeting you
