As a member of an Agile Scrum team, the Product Owner is the champion of the product, focuses on the product vision, roadmap, and is the foundation for its success. Their main responsibility is understanding the business, defining customer requirements, and prioritizing the work accordingly. This individual will maintain the product roadmap, lead backlog prioritization of initiatives to target roadmap goals, and ensure consistency across work products. Hybrid work schedule available.
