Krakow - Products

Product Manager

As a Product Manager at Backbase, you take ownership of the entire life-cycle of certain features and components; from Discovery to Design and Development, all the way through to Launch. Your key focus is on defining and communicating product strategies, roadmaps and plans, working closely with customers and the field to identify and validate development opportunities, before collaborating with technical colleagues to deliver new capabilities that optimize value for Backbase and its customers.

What you'll do

Despite being a highly complex product, our mission is quite simple. We believe that the human touch will always play a major role in the most memorable banking experiences. As such, we aim to empower bank employees to solve customer enquiries quickly, accurately and always at the first point of contact. It’s all about bringing the employee into the digital age.

Digital Assist is an established product line in the Backbase ecosystem of market-leading banking software. Our clients adopt our web application globally to put the human touch at the heart of their omni-channel banking experiences.

Specifically, this role will be responsible for unlocking highly desirable outcomes for financial institutions, including:

● Reduce the time and errors encountered when creating and managing cases for banking customers (for example: transaction disputes or general complaints);
● Reduce the cost and risk of manual handling across common back-office banking processes;
● Reduce the amount of separate systems / touchpoints bank employees face when supporting customer issues / cases

Combined by a collective passion for customer support in banking, Digital Assist is a close-knit team committed to improving the Bank Employee experience. Digital Assist currently consists of three product development squads based in Cardiff, UK. Following the discovery of a valuable opportunity to grow Digital Assist capabilities, we are excited to be building a new team in Krakow.
