Product Owner in Berlin Travel Startup

At trip.me, we bring travelers in direct contact with travel experts in the destination to organize round trips fully tailored to the traveler’s wishes. That means great experiences and customization for the traveler while building up local businesses at the same time.

As Product Owner at trip.me you translate our business objectives into clear and manageable projects, prioritize them to get optimal value out of our UX & Development Team and continuously refine & improve the development process. As we are introducing Scrum this year, you will be helping us to get everybody on board for the transition.

The product you will be working on is the platform. This includes the website and tools for travelers, local experts & their agencies around the world, and for our internal team. Our challenge is building & improving a broad range of projects with a team of 3 developers growing to 5 in Q2.

 

Responsibilities will include:

  • Working with other departments to define projects/user stories with clear objectives

  • Constantly refining & improving the items in the Product Backlog with stakeholders and the UX & Development Team

  • Making sure the Scrum team fully understands the business value and the requirements

  • Helping to ensure full transparency in the Product Development process for everybody involved

  • Keeping a healthy balance between short & long term and external & internal projects

 

We are looking for someone with:

  • An analytical and strategic mindset

  • A proactive, solution-focused and positive personality with a constant drive for improvement

  • Excellent communication skills (verbal, written & visual)

  • Ability to align with principal stakeholders successfully

  • A solid technical understanding of modern platforms to communicate effectively with the Development Team 

  • Fluency in English (office language is English, German is not required)

  • Optimally 1-3 years of Product Owner experience or alternatively (if other requirements fit) high motivation to grow into the role (we’ll be working with an Agile Coach for a smooth transition to the Scrum methodology)

 

Why you should join trip.me:

  • Flat hierarchies in a friendly and experienced international team with highly motivated & focused co-workers

  • Opportunity to help bringing an already growing company to the next level

  • Personal yearly learning budget for conferences, events, online courses

  • Modern and easily accessible workplace in the heart of Berlin-Kreuzberg

  • Working abroad for 2 weeks in a team offsite (in the past: Colombia, Spain/Morocco, Portugal, Israel/Jordan), subject to company results

  • Regular team activities

  • Commission free travel with trip.me partners & €450 Friends and Family travel vouchers

 

We are looking to fill the position as soon as possible. If this sounds interesting to you, go ahead and send your CV to [email protected] (address it to me, Stefan). Please also send any additional resources (certificates, references, …) that may help me to know you are the right fit. Please note that we only accept applications from candidates with a working visa for the EU. I am looking forward to hearing from you!
