Product Owner

At Zava we believe in giving people the power and confidence to treat the conditions society judges most. Every day we treat thousands of people across Europe who feel let down by the ‘old’ way of doing healthcare – phone calls, paper prescriptions, bureaucracy, waiting and worrying.

We’ve built an online medical platform that connects patients with doctors, pharmacies and test laboratories – providing safe, efficient and non-judgemental care to over 2 million patients in 6 countries and counting.

But this is just the beginning: we’re looking for a Product owner to lead a new team who will ultimately be responsible for improving the customer experience for target categories.

Key Accountabilities as Product Owner:

  • At its heart your responsibility will be to solve patient problems in a way that works for the business using the skills and
  • We don’t do “traditional” roadmaps here. Instead, you’ll work with the team and leadership to set Objectives and Key Results and figure out the best way of achieving those with your team

  • You’ll collaborate deeply with your core and wider team to make sure we build the right thing, and build the thing right
  • Although we believe strongly in the power of self-organising agile teams, you’ll be a natural leader in a team of developers and UX professionals.
  • You’ll foster a deep understanding of the company, our product, industry, customers, data and technology to enable you to make well-informed decisions.
  • You’ll combine quantitative ( ‘what’) and qualitative ( ‘why’) data to understand how our products – and any experiments you run – are performing.
  • You’ll be rigorously hypothesis-led, acknowledging what you don’t know and designing experiments to help the team learn fast!
  • As a result in a short space of time you can expect your, and your team’s, work to make a difference to millions of patients across the world.

As we are a fast growing startup with big plans to extend and adapt our platform, accountabilities may change over time. Changes will be made after consultation with the job holder.
