Are you drawn to a company that is making a difference? At Valassis, we are proud of the work we do to activate consumers on behalf of our clients through print and digital advertising - and we do it by being a trusted partner for big (and recognizable!) brands across all industry categories. We know we are expected to bring it and we do; by believing the right team can achieve anything.
Valassis is seeking a Product Owner to work with our engineering and user experience teams and UI products. These products are primarily internal tools that are used for campaign planning, execution, and monitoring. Youll be responsible for defining and executing the product roadmap. This includes defining requirements, writing user stories, prioritizing initiatives, and driving scalability and other investments for our core UI systems.
You will be focused on working with an advanced, highly quantitative development team to make features come to life for our products.
The ideal candidate is someone with strong technical skills and knowledge combined with the ability to clearly communicate technical concepts, but with enough business acumen to prioritize initiatives and work with senior management on tradeoffs. This candidate will be an advocate on behalf of our users, developing expertise in how users apply our tools, the challenges they have, and how we can listen to their needs and improve their experience within our suite of products.
In this position, you will
  • Work with the user experience team and developers on a technical roadmap that includes systems infrastructure, scalability and new technology introduction.
  • Engage with development leaders to articulate requirements, project plans and drive timely execution towards launch.
  • Bridge the gap between our technical needs and the requirements of our internal users including providing product requirements for implementation of changes to our systems.
  • Focus on scalability needs and ensuring our systems can handle our volumes in a timely manner.
  • Deliver products with our technical teams, always keeping in mind the complexities of highly scalable engineering endeavors.
  • Define, track, and improve key product metrics to implement a product dashboard to track usage and success.
You will bring...
  • Bachelors degree or higher preferably in relevant technical fields such as Computer Science, Analytics, etc.
  • 2+ years of experience as a product owner in an Agile software development environment, preferably working in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial environment
  • Prior experience collaborating closely with technical teams to build new products
  • Experience communicating progress at each phase of development as appropriate, including published roadmaps, requirements and other information
  • Knowledge of marketing technology or digital advertising is a plus
  • High degree of both technical expertise and business acumen, including familiarity developing new software and implications of SaaS business models
  • Strong results-orientation combined with excellent judgment and problem-solving skills; track record of product success
