Product Owner

This vacancy pertains to our partner Club Leaf!

Are you passionate about sustainability and want to work on protecting and restoring the planet? Are you flexible, hands-on and would you like to work for a company that is set out to change the world? That's great since we are looking for a product owner to lead Club Leaf's growth by managing our digital platform, including our consumer-facing native app.  Our ambition is to turn consumers and businesses worldwide into powerful agents that positively impact the environment by understanding, reducing, and offsetting their CO2 emissions. 

What are your responsibilities?  

As a product owner at Club Leaf, you will work in the heart of our operation. You will work with a variety of people: Club Leaf founders & investors, sales, business analysts, designers, front-end developers, back-end developers, QA’s, marketeers and copywriters. The role comes with the primary responsibility to lead the development of the Club Leaf digital platform. For now, we have defined the development process as follows:

  3. Translate the most promising concepts into a product offer and its features ;
  4. Prioritize features and refine them with the development team (functional and non-functional features) ;
  5. Monitor features to understand and optimize and the impact on Club Leaf business goals. 

As we are in start-up mode and our primary goal is to gain traction in the market, it is probably not a surprise for you that the above process is not as structured and mature as it should be. So, your second responsibility is to build, and continuously improve, the way of working to maximise outcomes. This might entail the following: 

  • Develop detailed understanding of the typical personas and their motivations so that you can validate features against it  
  • Organize a meaningful feedback loop for a consumer digital platform  
  • Onboard 3rd party services and tooling  
  • Understand the IT architecture behind the Club Leaf platform so that you can judge the required effort of new ideas and can have conversations with your tech colleagues  
  • Communicate status and progress towards founders and investors in a tone of voice that resonates with them  
  • Build a KPI tree so you can align with stakeholders on business goals and report on feature contribution  
  • All other things that you feel are important to create the outcome you believe is required! 


Who are you?
