Technical Product Owner

The role of the Technical Product Owner is to serve as a cross-functional leader across the business teams and the Data Engineering and Enterprise BI team to assert proper product delivery and for products to stay at the forefront of staffing industry needs. The Product Owner “owns” one product and acts as the business representative to the technical team while representing the team to the business. This role works with leadership teams, business, engineering, developers, clients, and other stakeholders to ensure software development and Data Engineering and Enterprise Business Intelligence efforts are in-line with overall product strategies and goals. This person is an influencer and thought leader and possesses the in-depth project leadership expertise and credibility to provide detailed guidance to the implementation team.

The Technical Product Owner works closely with Product Managers and Data Engineering leadership to engage end users and understand their needs. This person carries technical knowledge into strategic conversations about the Enterprise Data warehouse and Business Intelligence products. Working in this role is about creating and grooming their products backlog, maintaining technical and business requirements and defining the necessary artifacts for the technical/development team.
