ITX Corp. is seeking an Innovation Lead – Level 2 (Product Owner)

  • Do you love software products that are a joy to use?
  • Are you always bragging to friends about a new idea you had for a product, or how to make product better if you were in charge?

We live and breathe product and user experience at ITX. Working here means we value customer feedback, and a roadmap of the future. It also means surrounding yourself with other A-players.

We are looking for a mid to senior level Product Owner to join our Delivery Team leading software products for industry-leading clients.

The ideal candidate will demonstrate:

  • Leadership in brainstorming and idea generation with the client.
  • Competency to turn high level ideas and vision into high-quality technical user stories and acceptance criteria.
  • Thought provoking ways to collect and act on feedback from users.
  • A curious mind, to identify edge cases and poke holes in workflows and features.
  • Strong knowledge of Scrum to be able to lead user story refinement sessions with clients and teams.
  • Accountability, technical aptitude, and strong communication, facilitation and interpersonal skills.
  • High proficiency using and adapting tools to add value to the agile/lean processes.
  • The ability to understand what has to be done in the short term to build to a long-term result.
  • The confidence to put a crazy idea on the table, talk through it, and be OK if it’s rejected.
  • Ability to develop empathy and passion for the client’s vision with our internal team.
  • A positive and upbeat attitude.

Job Responsibilities

  • Working closely with primary Client Stakeholder to determine scope, goals and objectives of new projects, as well as defining and prioritizing product requirements (epics and user stories).
  • Collaborating with Client Stakeholder to understand and communicate the vision and keep it visible to the team.
  • Working with the Client Stakeholder and junior Innovation team members to maintain the product backlog of features, epics, stories, and tasks.
  • Facilitating roadmapping and release planning sessions, and with the Client Stakeholder, managing the Roadmap and Release Plan.
  • Continuously improving the quality of the product backlog and everyone's understanding of the items it contains through Release Planning and Backlog Refinement ceremonies.
  • If you don’t know what all these terms mean, but you’re still pumped about the position and think you’re qualified otherwise, that’s OK, we’d love to hear from you!

Additional Skills & Competencies we are looking for

  • Three or more years of product ownership experience (writing user stories and acceptance criteria).
  • Competence in the Agile/Scrum framework and the ability to coach less experienced team members.
  • Ability to explain the technical to a non-technical audience while retaining an appropriate level of detail.
  • Works independently without close supervision.
  • Background in custom software development activities and projects is preferred.
  • Preferred experience with application lifecycle management tools such as JIRA.
