A great stepping stone to a successful career
As part of my studies in Germany, I currently find myself doing an internship at Move4U in Rotterdam for five months.
What do the following people all have in common?
Jeff Bezos, co-founder of Amazon
Larry Page, co-founder of Google
Bill Gates, co-founder of Microsoft
These people were product owners at some point in their careers. But what exactly is a product owner and what do we do all day?
As a product owner, I am responsible for a variety of different tasks to deliver the products my clients desire.
We believe that our users play the most prominent role in developing our products. One of the key roles for me as a product owner is to translate those customer needs to product development.
Creating new products together with customers
One of the most important sources of information are our customers, we push ourselves to understand their needs in detail. In every step of product development, our customers are involved from the very beginning to the point of me sitting next to them when they actually start working with our products.
We want to experience how the movers use our technology in their field of work. This gives us more understanding about the user needs and extra insight that help us prioritizing the product development roadmap. What do they desire and how do they use it?
As the product owner I manage all parties involved, provide direction and vision, prioritize its back-log and also provide substantive information. I am the main contact for all our stakeholders and always focused on where the most added value can be achieved.
To understand the needs of our customers and our stakeholders and translate them to our products feels very rewarding. The icing on the cake is when we get feedback from our customers saying they enjoy using our products on a daily basis and that they contribute to a more efficient and structured way of working. Let’s continue to disrupt the mover's market with our products, by putting the customer needs first!
