What YOU will be doing

The Product Owner (PO) represents business priorities as set by PACS Product Managemement (represented by Product Managers) into relevant scrum teams. The PO also attends relevant Product Management meetings about planning and Program Backlog/Vision refinement. A scrum team can only have one PO. However, a PO can have several scrum teams.

This specific role will focus on a new concept that HID plan to introduce to the Physical Access Control market. We are therefore looking for an experienced Product Owner, who is looking for a growth opportunity.

Experience in hardware based solutions, connected to Cloud and Mobile, would be preferred. An end to end service perspective and the ability to understand customer needs is also beneficial.

 

What we are looking for:

Duties and Responsibilities include the following. Other duties may be assigned.

Preparation and participation in PI planning:P

  • As a member of the extended Product Management team, the PO is heavily involved in program backlog refinement and prep for Program Increment (PI) planning and also plays a significant role in the planning event itself.
  • During the event, the PO is involved with story definition, providing the clarifications necessary to assist the team with their story estimates and sequencing

Iteration execution:

  • Maintaining the team backlog – With input from System Architect/Engineering and other stakeholders, the PO has the primary responsibility for building, editing, and maintaining the team backlog.

  • Understand enabler work – While POs are not expected to drive technological decisions, they are supposed to understand the scope of the upcoming enabler work and collaborate with System and Solution Architect/Engineering to assist with decision-making and sequencing of the critical technological infrastructures that will host the new business functionality.
  • Participate in team demo and retrospective – POs collaborate with their team and any other stakeholders in the team demo. They also participate in the Iteration Retrospective, where the teams gather to improve their processes and are active in the Agile Release Train’s (ART’s) Inspect and Adapt (I&A) workshop.

Program execution:

  • Iterations and Agile teams serve a larger purpose; the frequent, reliable, and continuous release of value-added solutions. During each PI, the PO coordinates dependencies with other POs.
  • The PO also has an instrumental role in producing the System Demo for program and Value Stream stakeholders.

Inspect and adapt:
