Product Owner

  • Full Time Job
  • Hybrid

We provide premium cloud-based practice & workflow management software solutions to veterinary businesses around the world. Our intuitive and innovative ezyVet & Vet Radar products transform the way our customers manage their clinics, specialist centres, hospitals or universities by giving them more time and the tools to better care for our furry friends.

So, what’s your mission?

In an industry like ours, the customer has to be our main focus, we build what they tell us will make the most meaningful impact to them and their clinics. Through intuitive products and features ezyVet solves complex veterinary workflow problems like no one else can. Having recently been acquired by IDEXX, growth is our current game plan which means bringing on Product Owners to build out our department, increase coverage across our engineering teams and get that extra bit closer to our customers. There is a lot of opportunity here to grow and take ownership. Have we peaked your interest yet?

So what are we looking for?

  • Hands-on experience leading scrum teams in the delivery of a product that customers love, whilst delivering business outcomes.
  • Ability to lead iterative process change and guide/coach others in a fast paced agile environment.
  • A data-driven, entrepreneur mindset able to take ownership and present product needs and opportunities backed by diverse data influenced rationale.
  • A passionate operator at home setting large, measurable targets and inspiring others to join the journey and achieve big things.
  • A storyteller, with experience communicating concepts, ideas and value to all levels of stakeholders and customers.

The big challenge will be getting up to speed with our product and the customers we serve. The platform is VERY comprehensive but if you're a self-starter and bring established ways of working you'll excel at leading our engineering teams and collaborate other functions of the business to deliver delightful experiences to our customers. We got to this point being customer-centric and we are hell bent on keeping that philosophy to continue scaling at pace. Think you can make a positive impact?
