  • Full-time

Company Description

PDQ.com was recognized as one of “Utah's Best Places to Work” in 2017 and 2019 by Utah Business.  We are a small company with exceptional benefits, competitive compensation, and talented employees. We are also hardcore nerds who can use Powershell to solve world peace. Our customers are IT System Administrators and our software aims to make their lives easier. 

Job Description

We are seeking a Product Owner (PO) to help develop our marketing and sales websites. We want someone grounded in the tactical execution of a well groomed backlog. You need to be able to take user/stakeholder input and translate that into user stories and sprints. You should understand web technologies like Google Analytics/Hotjar to validate the direction of development. You should strive for the balance between customer and engineering focus; tactical and strategic planning. We are not looking for a marketer acting as PO, but a PO working in the marketing space. 

Qualifications

  • Have 2-3 years of experience as a Product Owner. Even better if you have experience as PO of a SaaS solution; you understand the importance of SLA, redundancy, high availability, capacity, and security.
  • A strong understanding of agile Scrum. This is a PO role in that sense, we do not have Product Manager/Project Manager roles. UX design is a resource to the PO role. 
  • Have great attention to detail while still being able to see the big picture. Developers need actionable user stories more than big ideas. 
  • Demonstrate excellent negotiation skills and the ability to work with nerds, geeks, and passionate folks.
  • Ability to write a user story with great acceptance criteria in your sleep.
  • Firm understanding of Google Analytics, Hotjar, and other website performance and UX validation measures. Able to examine page performance and suggest adjustments. 
  • Able to track progress of development team effort toward business goals and sprint goals.
