Product Owner

The Challenge

Prezi is looking for a Product Owner (PO) to work together with Product Managers (PM), Engineers, UX, Design and Data teams to help build the product right.  The PO, along with cross-functional team(s) will focus on how to solve the problem iteratively and at high quality.

The role of a product owner within Prezi has three main areas, 1) build the product right, 2) visibility of delivery, and 3) facilitate the rituals of the team.

To “build the thing right” the PO must clearly understand “what” problems our users are facing and “why” by working closely with PMs.  The PO is primarily responsible for providing visibility to others during sprints and cycles. The PO also supports PMs to provide Product level visibility.  The PO must help to facilitate the team’s rituals to ensure a rhythmic pattern for feedback loops.
