Product Owner for Ciklum (Lottoland)

Spain Remote

Project Management vacancies

Description

On behalf of Lottoland, Ciklum is looking for a Product Owner to join our Malaga team on a full-time basis.

Lottoland introduced a completely different product with a unique customer experience, huge pay-outs and more choice. Millions of customers worldwide have the chance to win astronomical and record-breaking amounts, by betting on the world’s biggest and most exciting lotteries, plus we offer scratch cards, instant games, casino games and sports betting.

A Product Owner is more than someone who writes tickets! We’re looking for a Product Owner with a can-do attitude and curiosity for learning. You’re a humble achiever that gets things done, collaborates well and demonstrates ownership. You love solving problems and being the bridge between tech and the business.

You’re the voice for many different business areas and people. You take in lots of info, quickly make sense of it and justify that what we build is delivering value and solving the right problems. You can effortlessly convey key messages verbally, and your written communication (e.g., Jira tickets) makes it easy for anyone to understand the ‘what’ and ‘why’ and ‘how’.
Reporting to the Product Manager for Lotteries, you will be fundamental in contributing to and delivering on Lottoland’s strategy across all our markets. You will do this through owning one or more development teams and prioritising work to achieve the company’s goals.

You will contribute to the company’s roadmap, interpret, and generate detailed product requirements for your teams, support development team needs, ensure compliance with existing and new regulated markets, liaise with stakeholders, as well as optimise strategies for the lottery product portfolio. Your aim is to give our lottery customers the best possible experience when buying a lottery ticket; safely and seamlessly.

Your focus is more tactical and detail-oriented; your partner (the Product Manager) supports you on the high level and strategic parts. You enjoy digging into the detail, breaking down ‘the how’ with the team. You have a solid technical understanding, and we can count on you to ensure nothing important is missed. 

With you on the team, we can be proud of our product and know that it is fit-for-purpose and delivers value, quickly. It’s about continuous improvement not delayed perfection.
