Malmesbury

Description

Dyson is growing. Fast. More products. New categories. More visual communications. We are a creative technology company with a global and iconic identity. Our mission is simple: We solve problems others ignore with exciting new technologies which defy convention.

The Product Owner will oversee the agile program of work to deliver MADE, delivering releases to the business that add value as fast as possible.  Alongside the build of the new data environment, one of the first initiatives to capitalise on the MADE data environment will be an enhanced Owner Engagement (CRM) program, to support & engage Dyson Owners and drive media efficiencies. 


Market Overview

Dyson HQ, is tucked away in the Wiltshire countryside, our secluded location helps us to protect our ideas and stay independent-minded. Yet nearby are the fashionable cities of Bristol and Bath (where a young James Dyson invented cyclone technology). 

 

The growing campus is the heartbeat of Dyson. Benefitting from an onsite Gym, sports pitch, multiple cafes and a nature walk. Over 2,000 people, including James himself, spend their days strategizing, inventing technology and telling the Dyson story to the world.

Function Overview

The Marketing Analytics Data Environment (MADE) programme is key in putting the Owner at the heart of the Dyson business and establishing a data-driven operating model.  The MADE dataset will capture key consumer interactions from source systems (internal & external data sets) to help build and inform the enriched profiles we use to personalise our communications with Owners.

Accountabilities

  • The Product Owner will be the one person ultimately responsible for the return on investment (ROI) of the product development effort.

  • Part of the responsibility is to work with a vision for the programme, and convey that vision to the product development team.

  • The Product Owner will understand the market, the customer and the business in order to make sound decisions.

  • The Product Owner influences the development effort by conveying the vision to the team(s) and prioritizing the Product Backlog.

  • The Product Owner must have the authority to make real business decisions, vision about what the product could be, and availability to the team(s).

  • It is the Product Owner’s responsibility to consider which activities will produce the most business value. This means making tough decisions about what not to do.

  • Although the agile PO prioritizes the product backlog during the sprint planning meeting, the team selects the amount of work they believe they can do during each sprint, and how many sprints will be required.

     

    Responsibilities:

  • Create and maintain the product backlog (requirements).

  • Ensure backlog is ‘groomed’ prior to Sprint Planning.

  • Inspect the product progress at the end of each Sprint and accept or reject work done based on pre defined acceptance criteria.

  • Communicate status externally and be the voice of the team to stakeholders

  • Responsibility to change the course of the project at the end of every Sprint. The Product Owner is in complete control and can steer the team in a completely different direction at Sprint boundaries. Agile teams will welcome this change as long as the Product Owner is confident and knowledgeable.
