Job description

What will your role be?

In this position, you will be responsible for maximizing the value of Channable to its users. You'll be working closely with our teams and our customers to gather ideas on improvements or new features that can be added to our product. We expect you to be able to lead feature design, experiment, and iterate where necessary and finally validate the design before implementing. These processes are relatively new to Channable, so you’ll have the freedom to pick them up with the teams as you see fit. As a part of the product team, you will also help shape the product strategy, which is foundational to how Channable is shaped over the coming years.

At Channable, this product owner role is an extremely collaborative effort between our sales, support, marketing, and development teams. You will be joining the product team that has a track record of delivering new products and features that are used by thousands of clients and that process billions of data points every day.

  • Assessing the specific impact of a new feature or improvement.
  • Ensuring feature delivery is structured and coordinated.
  • Assessing the business case for a new feature or improvement.
  • Signaling opportunities that could deliver large value to our product.
  • Working with the product team to assess and optimize product workflows.

What are we looking for?

  • A minimum of 2 years of experience with product ownership.
  • The ability to work with technical documentation (for example for APIs).
  • You are thorough in finding the ‘problem behind the problem’ and you don’t always take things at face value.
  • You like diving into design problems and iterating until you’re sure that it directly impacts our users’ core problems.
  • You have a proven track record of keeping delivery focused on quality over quantity.
  • You know how to produce a feature roadmap that highlights outcomes and how this plays into the users' problems.
  • You can work out the business case for a specific feature and clearly communicate its value to others.

Practical requirements

  • Excellent written communication skills in English.
  • You have EU citizenship or a work permit for the Netherlands.
  • Already living in The Netherlands is an advantage.
  • Available for at least 4 days a week, preferably 5.

What do we offer?

  • Competitive salary.
  • An informal atmosphere within our internationally-oriented company.
  • Working directly with our teams and getting feedback from Channable's management team.
  • A flat organization that is open to your ideas.
  • Great working conditions: free lunches, massages, Yoga, and Channable sports groups. Finish the week with well-deserved drinks with your colleagues at our own office-bar! We hope to be back in the office soon.
