Product Owner

Job description

Why we want you

The title of this job is “Product Owner”, but only because “Fiercely Passionate Gatekeeper of The Marketing Platform for Hotels” wasn’t getting a lot of hits on LinkedIn. Essentially we’re looking for someone to nurture, improve and grow our core product with the same passion as though it was their own digital child. Your ultimate goal is to make sure our product is delivering maximum value to our customers.


Plotting the course of our product development, you are in charge of communicating, managing and prioritising the product roadmap, whilst brainstorming new features, UX testing new releases, carefully describing features, giving feedback to designers and a whole lot more (the sentence was getting too long though).


What makes a Champ

You might have heard a lot of things about working in a startup. Honestly, we’re guilty of some of them – free drinks, a young team with funny accents from all over the world, and at least one of our developers has a beard. And also like a lot of start-ups, we’re growing super fast – we’ve quadrupled our team within a year, and like a cheetah on a skateboard going down a hill, we’re only going faster.


So what makes Hotelchamp different to other startups? The short answer is how we treat you. We celebrate the individual success of each and every employee, we’re just as interested in your development as our own, and we’ll absolutely push you to your limits – but never too far. We know that our company is only as good as the people who work here, so we only hire the best and the brightest. Because that’s what it takes to be a Champ.


What you’ll do with us

  • Truly own the product, this means: Use it, analyse it, improve it, test it, think about it, talk about it, talk TO it, love it and dream about it

  • Drive the implementation of technology and process solutions from concept to completion

  • Act as a communication bridge between the Development and Customer Success team

  • Be the go-to-person for the Customer Success team regarding product

  • Prepare and preset the product communication package (monthly webinar, product updates etc)

  • Develop and maintain the Product roadmap

  • Monitor Platform Engagement data insights

  • Prepare and lead product and IT weekly meetings with Head of Tech and CMO

  • Be the Jira lead. Define new features and bugs.

What we give to you

  • As the old guy in Spiderman says, with great power, comes great responsibility – take control of your development and guide where you want to take your career within the company

  • Thank God it’s Thursday – Thursday drinks with the whole team and Thursday company lunch on us

  • Some of the most competitive but poorly skilled ping-pong players in the world – prepare to be challenged (and probably victorious)
