We are looking for someone with the below experience:
To understand what I am looking for, we need to understand what is a Product Owner:
The Product Owner is not an Agile Project Manager. There is some overlap between the role of Product Owner and the position of Project Manager, however, being a Product Owner is very different from being a Project Manager. (So I am not looking for a Project Manager)
The Product Owner is the person who is responsible for making sure that the product delivers as much value as possible.
The Product Owner is also responsible for Product Backlog Management.
The Product Owner is responsible for Stakeholder Management, someone that will work with other Channel Managers and stakeholders to understand the business requirements, decompose them into client requirements, and oversee the product delivery.
Finding angles for profit and growth on the client, category, and business level. Ensuring daily volume and quality targets are hit. Defining strategies to improve gross profit and strategies for account management/sales team. Providing input for new business and allocating budgets for internal departments. Sourcing and onboarding affiliates/ suppliers. Finding new channels and ways to market by ensuring campaigns go live seamlessly on specified dates, weekly commentating on volume, financial, and quality reports.
