Pixelmatters is a digital product studio. We’re a team of strategists, designers, and developers creating top-quality digital products.

Our mission is to empower businesses to achieve their full potential by creating top-quality digital products, while fostering great relationships along the way. We envision a world where great user experience is the norm, not the exception, inspiring businesses and people to be at their best.

We’re looking for you — a great communicator, flexible, and self-driven Product Owner. A team player who likes to work in a fast-paced agile environment.

Client relationships are key at Pixelmatters. We have a mixed reality of product and project development in which we proudly collaborate with our clients, some of whom have internal design, development, and management teams with established processes. We embrace the challenge of building trustworthy remote relationships using the power of communication. We care about standing out by quality, having a voice, and a strategic mindset. Now, we're looking to expand the Product team. And here is where you come in...

Your role is focused on managing clients' relationships and their products. You're experienced in the IT industry - Designer, Software Engineer, QA, Business Analyst, or other - and you're seeking a challenge in the Product field. You cherish the value of proactive and open communication with the people you work with. You're also flexible and able to adjust to each client's needs and reality. You're organized and self-driven by your own motivations of having an impact.

Some of your day-to-day tasks will include active communication with our clients, managing their expectations, reporting budget status, scope accomplishment, sharing strategic ideas to empower their businesses, and serving as a bridge to our internal teams. You'll be responsible for the scope and process specifications, and by negotiating these with our clients.

You are an ambassador of Pixelmatters culture, lead by example, and believe in people empowerment.

It would be awesome if you also have...

  • Experience in commercial matters like estimation processes and budget management
  • Track record creating strategies to negotiate scope and timeline with stakeholders
  • Experience as a facilitator between stakeholders and delivery teams
  • Flexibility in understanding products’ position in different markets, identifying potential opportunities and product gaps
  • Worked with design teams and highly demanding UI projects

Benefits

  • Quality-driven, inspiring and collaborative work environment
  • Competitive salary and benefits, including health insurance
