As a Product Owner, you will manage the execution of NMI’s strategy and roadmap for Unified Commerce Enablement. The Product Owner is responsible for transforming customer and business requirements into user stories and tasks that the development team can execute upon. At NMI, our Product Owners facilitate backlog grooming, prioritization, triage, and other development ceremonies. Our product owners also take an active role in product launches, ensuring internal stakeholders are trained on the latest product capabilities. You must possess a unique blend of business and technical savvy; a big-picture vision and attention to detail and the drive to make that vision a reality. You must enjoy spending time learning the product and understanding its users in order to make the best design decisions for our clients.
You must be able to communicate with all areas of the company. You will work with engineering counterparts to define product release requirements. You will work with support to understand client challenges and be able to recommend their priority. You will work with appropriate internal teams to understand pending go live schedules and any product issues that need to be addressed to make those implementations as smooth and successful as possible. You will also serve as the internal evangelist for your product offering, occasionally working with key customers and our customer success organization.
