The company is working on the development of a financial service app that empowers people to make the most of their money while leading the way for socially conscious behavior.  The application is built around multiple themes and offers various financially related services. Today there are endless opportunities to save money, but it's easy to miss out on them. This Vilnius-based team believes technology can help us spend less and save more. Their smart app helps find personalized saving opportunities and put more money into savings.

Your Role:

In your role as product owner, your main aims are to understand and co-create a 'product' vision with a product lead and translate this vision into a prioritized backlog for your team.

  • Assess the value, manage dependencies and prioritize stories and epics to ensure work focuses on items with maximum value and is aligned with the business needs.
  • Take ownership for running/maintaining the environment once you developed the solution.
  • Prioritize, realize and report effectively on results, deviations, and solutions to stakeholders.
  • Continuously communicate with stakeholders about the status of the work, the risks, and the decisions made or needed in order to progress.

You are:

  • Embracing change
  • Great at building and giving trust
  • Self-motivated, ambitious
  • A strong communicator who understands the power of active listening/empathy and knows when to shut up

It would be great if you also have a background in FinTech/Financial/Tech and affinity with sports and/or charities.

Relocation support:

A relocation package is discussed individually. By informing your future employer about your specific moving needs, you can help them identify what set of relocation benefits will make your transition smoother.

Please note the company is offering relocation only within the EU due to the current pandemic situation.

Additional information:

Besides a competitive remuneration package, there's room for professional development and growth. The company offers a flexible and open working environment.

You'll be able to do many different things from the start and be creative in how you want to do your work. Within limits, you will also be able to choose how, when, and where you work your hours.
