Product Owner KEEPR platform (m/f)

About our company:
Lagardère Sports is a global leader in football marketing and one of the largest agencies in the sports business. The sports marketing group covers the entire spectrum of sports rights marketing, from trading with international television rights to stadium advertising, jersey sponsorship, stadium development and hospitality programs. In Germany, more than 300 employees work at 17 locations for the Lagardère Sports Germany GmbH. In addition to its core business of football, Lagardère Sports Germany GmbH is an active leader in additional attractive platforms such as winter sports, handball or Formula 1.

Within the digital team at Lagardère Sports, mobile app development is a key value proposition to sports clubs. All of our apps in football (e.g. for BVB, HSV or Hertha BSC) rely on one common backend. As this is at the heart of everything we do around mobile apps (content aggregation, fan engagement, sponsorship), we will now go the next step of establishing this platform as an outstanding product that stands and speaks for itself by powering mobile applications and a variety of other digital channels (e.g. perimeter boards) for sports clubs.

Your challenge:
– Change status quo from a component (backend/middleware for mobile apps) to a product with full product market fit (multi-channel engagement platform and business solution for sports clubs)
– Be responsible for the overall success of the product
– Create a product strategy and roadmap coordinated with relevant stakeholders (sports clubs, (frontend) engineering, management and sales)
– Work with stakeholders to balance business and technical requirements and manifest these as clear, stable priorities for the development teams
– Create, manage and prioritize the product backlog including user stories, user acceptance criteria, epics, process maps, mockups, data mapping and additional formal requirements
– Identify and mitigate risks, dependencies and constraints
– Establish processes, tools, and metrics for product development

Your profile:
– Proven track record of being responsible for at least three web products or significant product releases
– Capable of clearly expressing the connections between larger business goals and small backlog items
– Desire to build outstanding products that customers love and be hands on in everything you do
– Strategic thinking, analytical mind and good authority
– Professional experience in managing diverse (senior) stakeholders
– Familiarity with web & Mobile based product development and a general understanding of typical technology architecture for large scale, web and mobile applications
– Experienced in tools and processes for mockups, click-dummies, wireframes and user testing
– Good knowledge of technology in general and of established web technologies (Ruby, JSON, XML, APIs)
– Good knowledge of common user analytics methods and tools
– Good sense for great UX
– Excellent verbal and written communication skills (German and English) including presentation and listening skills with the ability to present complex technical information clearly to varying audiences
– Actively contribute to the team’s culture of having fun together, embracing change and delivering
