Vitamin T is assisting our technology company client in their search for a Product Owner. This is a contract to hire role onsite in NYC.
You'll have the opportunity to be a part of a small, multi-disciplinary team of technologists, designers, and product managers, you’ll have the freedom to make key product decisions without much oversight, and the tools and resources to build and ship ideas quickly. You’ll be a part of a startup-like environment in a company with thousands of existing customers.

What you'll own

Champion the product vision, strategy, and roadmap product goals and objectives.
Lead the discovery, technical development, and launch of MVPs and scale products.
Manage the entire product life cycle from strategic planning to tactical activities.
Breakdown the product vision into user stories, write UACs, prioritize features, build consensus, and coordinate product schedules with a team of engineers and designers.
Define and analyze metrics that inform the success of products.

Why you?

Excellent product judgment: You have an in-depth understanding of what makes a user experience good or bad, can debate the merits of kanban vs scrum vs your own home-grown model, and have strong intuition for what people want to do.
Appreciation for detail: You easily recognize aesthetic and functional details and can make pragmatic decisions about what details are actually important.
Strategic insight: You understand the industry in depth, and can use your knowledge to predict the behavior of key players.
Comfort with tech: we prefer a computer science degree or equivalent programming experience, but it’s most important that you can communicate effectively with engineers about product details and technical option.
Leadership: Others naturally look to you for guidance. You understand group dynamics and can organize chaotic situations.
Writing ability: You could write final text for UI strings, marketing copy, or press releases. Your writing is pithy, clear, and in command of tone.
