Apply for this job

We are looking for a Product Owner responsible for the implementation of new features and product improvements for the Rentman software. You manage the backlog of one of the products and make sure functionality of developed features is on point. You communicate with our users and internal stakeholders to constantly make sure you understand our user's problems and needs.

We put our users first at Rentman. That’s why we are constantly pushing for new innovations and improvements that will make their daily working lives easier. In this role you will work closely with developers, designers, other product owners and the product manager to improve the product in the most user-friendly way. With your scrum team you make sure you build a minimal valuable product and plan next iterations in collaboration with the launching customers for this feature.

As Product Owner at Rentman you will have the freedom, but also the responsibility, to decide the next cool feature to add to your product. You will not be wasting your time defending your roadmap from many ‘great’ ideas from internal or external shareholders. We believe that talking to our users yourself will get you the best input to make your decisions.

You will be working amongst innovative, hardworking, entrepreneurial and great team players. Do not worry about making mistakes, as long as you will learn from them! We aim to work smart, creative, and with great collaboration to build a platform that our customers love. If you see a good fit in this environment, why not send us your introduction?

We are looking for organized people that love to work in teams, are tech savvy, data minded and can break down problems into actionable steps. You should be able to balance your focus between now (sprint), next (backlog) and later (roadmap).

Main responsibilities

  • In close collaboration with the product manager, you own the product roadmap and development of one of Rentman’s software products or modules

  • Work with launching customers and conduct user tests to understand what needs to be done to drive the adoption of the product and its features

  • Continuously improve the usability and overall user experience of our products

  • Engage and deliver in the product making decisions based on data and experience to reach company, team and product goals and KPIs

  • Manage the understanding, visibility, and accessibility of the roadmap to the development team and internal stakeholders
