Senior Product Owner Gemvara
THIS JOB HAS EXPIRED About Our Company:
The fine jewelry industry is big and it?s been following the same playbook for the last hundred years. Jewelers put out a select number of items, pre-specified for the masses to choose from. Why is it this way? Why can?t you get exactly what you want?
At Gemvara, we?re changing how people shop for fine jewelry by enabling them to find their perfect piece. Customers can customize choosing from 27 gemstones and 9 metals creating millions of options and offering them something truly special and truly unique. We think we?re on to something and so do our investors.
Just like how our customers can customize, none of our product solutions are straight forward or out of the box. How do you distill millions of potential options into the one product that a customer truly wants? How do you strike the right balance between romanticizing jewelry and providing important details on each piece? How do you convey all the above in a great mobile experience? At Gemvara, the Sr. Product Owner will play a significant role in defining product roadmaps and features and Gemvara?s overall success.
As a Product Owner, working closely with your business stakeholders, you will champion and drive business value analysis, prioritization, requirements gathering, planning and execution of new products, features and functionality across Gemvara?s value chain. You will ensure that our solutions support strategic goals and priorities and drive the largest impact on our customers and business.
What You?ll Do:
? Work closely with business stakeholders to create business value analysis for our key projects and initiatives.
? Work with groups across the organization to gather, develop and prioritize project roadmaps.
? Be the key point of contact for your sprint team and a critical conduit between Gemvara?s business owners and the engineering team.
? Create product backlog and related user stories and convey them to the engineering team.
? Play the product owner role in daily stand-ups, grooming sessions and other agile activities.
? Convey technical concepts and customer benefits cross-functionally to ensure successful launches.
? Effectively communicate results, progress, and decisions throughout the organization including presenting regularly to the leadership team and executive team.
Experience / Skills You?ll Need:
? 5+ years of experience in a product owner role or similar.
? Ability to identify and define market needs and solutions and to create business cases for each opportunity to inform prioritization choices.
? Strong customer focus.
? Desire to work in a fast-paced environment in a creative environment.
? Proven track record at launching new products and/or leading successful cross-functional initiatives.
? Excellent decision making and problem solving skills.
Team player who partners well with others and thrives in a collaborative environment.
