Senior Product Owner (f/m/d) #Logistics #International #HandsOn

From mobile app to parcel routing - there is always sophisticated IT behind it all. As an internal service provider for the GLS Group, we develop, organize and are responsible for the entire IT for around 862 million parcels in over 49 countries worldwide. In the future we will add more countries to our GLS family.

You will be part of the GLS Group IT Solutions & Architecture unit taking care of our microservice architecture, our API products and our web portals for international parcel logistics around the world. We create modern "API first" and "Cloud first" logistics solutions for our internal organization, partners and customers.

What can you expect with us?

  • You define the product vision and product roadmap for your products in collaboration with the business departments, and support them evaluating the feasibility of feature ideas. You prioritize new features and organize the Sprint Planning
  • You take care of the product backlog, i.e. create designs, write Epics and User Stories, facilitate Backlog Refinements, and clarify open questions with Business Architects, IT Architects and colleagues from other teams
  • You align the product development with colleagues from our business departments and – in case of internal interdependencies – with other Product Owners from our IT departments
  • You lead your product team (5-7 people) also as a line manager – you call the shots!
  • You strike the balance between creative freedoms and necessary processes to leverage the full potential of each of your team members
  • You use software tools like Microsoft Teams, Jira and Confluence for remote communication. As we promote a hybrid working model, we also meet up in person in the office regularly

  • You have a computer sciences or information sciences degree, or a comparable training/professional experience
