    Product Owner

    Summary 

    PlanSource is a high-growth software company headquartered in Orlando, Florida with offices in Salt Lake City, UT, Minneapolis, MN, Charleston, SC, and Grand Rapids, MI. Currently, we are looking for a Product Owner to join our Product & Innovation team and help redefine benefits administration. Supporting the Product Roadmap, the Product Owner understands and executes on the company’s vision – both as a whole and on a smaller scale for their business unit. Whether writing user stories and acceptance criteria, creating process flows, reviewing user testing feedback, or acting as a product champion, this role works closely with internal and external resources.

     

    Working in an Agile environment, the Product Owner knows how to deliver exceptional results in a fast-paced environment while balancing a sense of humor and professionalism. The Product Owner knows the direction but is empowered to determine the means of getting there. Generating innovative ideas to resolve problems, as well as handling complex issues and negotiating resolutions is part of the challenge and fun in the Product Owner role.

    Role and Responsibilities:

    The Product Owner has a wide variety of roles and responsibilities, including but not limited to:

    • Being a product champion/advocate
    • Acting as a subject matter expert (SME) for their business unit
    • Establishing, prioritizing, and maintaining the product backlog from the product roadmap
    • Gathering and defining requirements in user stories with acceptance criteria
    • Performing data analysis and research to drive decision making
    • Conducting stakeholder interviews both internally and externally
    • Clarifying product backlog items to the Scrum team
    • Reviewing developed user stories to determine acceptance
    • Conducting product showcase demonstrations
    • Coordinating with UI/UX if design elements are required for products
    • Removing impediments from the Scrum team
    • Maintaining product/project schedules (i.e. contractual obligations)
    • Creating, maintaining, and communicating quarterly release plans
    • Partnering with Learning & Development to create and maintain product documentation
