Product Owner App

Are you the forward-thinking product owner that can help deliver new features to our riders?

As VanMoof grows into the future and beyond, we are looking for a Product Owner who can help the app team create new features and improve the overall user experience. We want to streamline our processes, while implementing new products and services to support our internal teams.

As App Product Owner, you’ll be responsible for improving the way riders interact with the VanMoof app across all experience flows. This will require equal parts thought leadership, collaboration, and relentless determination. In this role you’ll take high-level requirements and translate them into clear user stories. You’ll also prepare and refine the backlog with our development team, generating outputs and further growing this team.

Results-wise, you’ll need to exponentially grow our app capabilities and functionalities. To do this, you’ll need to ensure that every interaction with VanMoof is as effortlessly intuitive as our bikes. Beyond that, you should maintain connections with key people and teams from other VanMoof platforms, such as e-commerce, ERP, and even our store POS systems.

We are looking someone who will take responsibility of defining the roadmap, managing stakeholders, supporting our development team(s), and managing external development. You’ll be working with the engineering team on a daily basis, collaborating with other product owners to align your roadmaps. With the engineering team, you’ll come up with new features, specify stories, and make decisions on our priorities based on analytics and user feedback.

  • Take ownership of the app and related backend development, prioritising new features and enhancements.

  • Minimum of 2 years’ hands-on experience in the worlds of (connected) app development and agile Product Owner experience with a connected product.
