Vinted is Europe’s biggest preloved fashion marketplace, with 37 million members in 13 countries. Our mission is green: we want to make second-hand the first choice globally.
A team of over 600 people across Vinted’s offices in Vilnius, Berlin, Utrecht and Prague develop and support our platform. We share a unique work culture that’s based on aiming high, taking ownership, co-creating, caring, and growth.
We're looking for a full-time Product Owner to strengthen the Utrecht office for our newly-boosted team. From our Utrecht office we’re exploring opportunities for our expansion plans within Europe and beyond. You will proactively participate in one of our two product squads. In this squad you work together with a product analyst, product designer, three frontend and two backend engineers, to reach company objectives. 

In this position, you’ll:

  • You always know exactly what your squad is working on and why those features are prioritised over others. You understand the company strategy and can distinguish strategy from tactics
  • You effectively project manage each sprint & make sure everybody is aligned by preparing the weekly meeting & driving everyone to share their roadmaps
  • You divide tasks and enable everyone in your squad to do what they do best. You think ahead and proactively take away potential blockers even before they arise
  • You communicate effectively via presentations, verbal and in writing. You present the squad roadmap to other stakeholders during the weekly standup 
  • You constantly deliver qualitative user research (questionnaires, user testings, surveys) which you translate into learnings. These learnings you share with the team and translate to product improvements
  • You create Product requirements  and align with all stakeholders to turn ideas into concrete features. You work with the designer to translate the requirements document into designs, with developers to understand technical constraints and amount of work and with the product analyst to estimate commercial impact
  • You keep track of the idea backlog and are in constant sync with the Product Director on the company's priority
  • Align with the rest of the business & operations teams to understand their needs
  • Guard the quality of the live code by testing new code, proactively testing code and talking to users and customer support to find bugs. You work with the engineering director to guard the quality during roll out of new features and you are the point of contact when issues arise 

About you:

  • Basic technological knowledge; you understand the difference between front-end, GraphQl and the API and write basic SQL
  • Strong personality: you manage all your different stakeholders well and aren’t afraid to say no
  • Data-driven approach to decision making 
  • Communicate well: you can explain product priorities to different stakeholders
  • Commercial mindset and HBO/WO level business education
  • An eye for detail and a passion for products and user experience

Work perks:

  • Opportunity to join our stock options programme
  • Learning budget (10% from gross yearly salary) 
  • 25 working days of holiday
  • Monthly team-building events
  • Remote workout classes
  • A personal budget for shopping on Vinted
