About The Role

Hippo Digital is looking to build a talent pool of talented Product Owners for current and future contractor opportunities. Due to the variety of our projects and clients, we have Inside IR35 positions available on a short-term or long-term basis with fully remote/flexible working arrangements.

Product Owners ensure that our client's goals turn into actions. This means creating a compelling vision for your product, developing the product roadmap, writing user stories and actively managing them in a prioritised backlog.

Your role in a nutshell:

  • Inspiring and guiding your colleagues by supporting them in understanding the client's needs, explaining the broader context and setting sprint goals
  • Protect the team from unwanted distraction where possible, allowing them to focus solely on delivery
  • Engage and inform your stakeholders by taking responsibility for stakeholder engagement and having the credibility and humility to communicate with an extremely diverse group of people
  • You’ll work within a diverse, multidisciplinary team to deliver a product on behalf of one of our clients, likely to be one of the most significant and high-profile organisations in the UK.

Skills and experience that you need

People are at the centre of everything we do. We’re a diverse and close-knit community united by a love for solving complex problems for our clients and their users. We take a common sense approach to getting things done. We get things wrong, we learn from experience and we adapt. We stay curious and never stop learning.

We don’t need you to have any certificates or qualifications, but we do need to be confident that you have the ability to:

  • Identify and measure value
  • Build consensus amongst people with different perspectives, with the confidence to make decisive decisions when consensus is not possible
  • Bridge the gap between stakeholders and the team so the team can remain focused on delivery
  • Find pragmatic and creative ways to overcome obstacles
  • Ensure the user is at the heart of the product and the team
  • Perform well in a wide variety of disciplines (Scrum, Kanban, DevOps)
  • Deliver products that meet user needs whilst balancing political, economic, social and technological factors
  • Communicate confidently and credibly on behalf of the company the the client
  • Lead workshops and group exercises, remotely and in-person
  • Build capability in others, helping colleagues and clients know what to when you are not around
