Product Owner

Job description



Who we are

SIG is an ambitious global technology and consultancy firm delivering independent software quality assurance solutions. We believe we can make the world a better place by helping developers and organisations create better software. To accomplish this, we are continuously improving and expanding our Software Intelligence Platform


How we work

As you might expect, we hold quality in high regard: we measure the quality of our code our process and our operations, more than you might be used to. We code, write tests, review, discuss and refactor if needed. We don’t just spit out features and move on to the next thing. We automate things wherever we can and throw out stuff we no longer need. In the long run, quality equals speed. Some data you may be interested in: we have a Java backend, Angular/Typescript frontend. Our pipeline starts in Gitlab which produces docker containers handled by Nexus deployed on a Puppet-managed cloud infrastructure. There.


Where you come in

As a product owner for our security products, you help to execute SIG’s product roadmap both internally and with clients. Your product goal is to translate security findings into actionable advice, for both IT management and for development teams. Internally, you prioritize and refine work for the development team, and you act as a point of contact for product-related questions from other parts of the organization. Externally, you actively work with our clients and delivery organization to ensure they get the most out of our products.


What's in it for you?

We offer you a unique opportunity to join us on the forefront of getting software right. At SIG you can make a difference for the biggest organizations, and for critical software systems that have become important in our lives. If you too believe that it is essential to do something about how software is engineered, to get it under control and to prevent serious incidents, then you can be at the heart of progress at SIG.

Your colleagues will be a fun, young, international, and exceptionally well-educated group of people. Work schedules are flexible and many people successfully plan around their young families. Our organization structure is flat, providing much room for your own initiatives and ideas.
