“A key role in one of the most strategic projects of Talpa Network, with an impact on all our brands and their millions of users”

As our new Product Owner you will be working in a dynamic, informal and multidisciplinary team where you will be responsible for managing the product backlog for products in our Account services portfolio.

Together with your Development teams, you will run several development streams concurrently. Typically, these involve consent management, privacy, identification, account, data and payments.


Your typical day at Talpa Network

  • You’ll start your day with a good cup of coffee and a great view from our Amsterdam based office
  • Caffeine kicked in yet? Say ‘Hi’ to your Serbian development squad which is ready to do the daily stand-up and inform you on the progress and next steps
  • Now it’s time for a little after-discussion with your Solution Architect to identify the high prio actions for today
  • Incoming call! It’s one of your stakeholders to discuss a new feature
  • Take your time to work on that Product Backlog. User stories don’t write themselves
  • Lunch time
  • While having an after-lunch dip, it’s a good time to check your Slack channels. Catch up with your team and help them speed up by answering their questions
  • Up next is refinement. You thought your user stories were clear, but the team always has that one question that isn’t answered in the acceptance criteria
  • Let’s get visual! UX/Design has some fancy stuff to present to the product team. Let’s find the hidden features
  • You should probably take a look at your mail-box by now…
  • And back at it! You don’t only talk to your team by video calls, there’s a visit to be scheduled
  • Building great products is nice. But they’ll have to be implemented as well. Inform your fellow Product Owners at our brands by having a product session with them
  • Get together with the product team and go through the roadmap. Are we still on track?
  • Finally, let’ s prepare tomorrow’s release while enjoying the sunset
