Are you our new Product Owner in a new start up in Finland?
UNO Finans AS is looking for a Product Owner to start building up new fintech solution in Finland. UNO Finans AS is loan comparison service similar to hotels.com or ebookers are for hotels, except for financial services; type in your loan application information and get multiple loan offers from several banks to compare instead of getting only one loan offer from your local bank (which btw might not always be the cheapest..) Here at UNO Finans AS we aim to deliver exceptional customer journey for consumers to make better financial decisions!
At UNO Finans our expectations towards you as Product Owner are straightforward.
UNO Finans will be a start-up business in Finland although there is already functioning business in Norway. This means that there will be only few people in the beginning working locally, but on the other hand these people are all unique and very carefully selected based on their skills. There is also expertise available in our existing markets. The job in the beginning will be very hands on and concentrates on localizing the existing systems to Finnish markets. In the long run the job will be more about developing the system to function better.
Your tasks as a Product Owner will be to:
Act as a link between business and IT developers,
Create clear definitions (in cooperation with business) of new features which our IT developers will then make into reality,
Own the new features and make sure by practical testing that the end result is what was ordered,
Own, update and create new variables in the system to optimize customer and partner processes,
Make sure the customer journey is best in class and the customers are treated fairly
Contact with banks
Place of work will be in Helsinki and some business travelling will be required to Oslo, but this is expected to be fairly limited.
What kind of skills we expect from you?
This role is ideal for a person who can be described as follows:
has business-oriented and practical mindset,
is eager to develop relevant routines and setups to improve product and services,
has eye for technical details to create precise understandable documentation with MS Office tools and will follow up that the definition is brought to action by testing,
has solid English and Finnish language skill (to be able to speak Swedish is seen as a bonus),
has some experience from acting as a product owner or in some other similar role to understand the “language” between IT and business (* see below)
has relevant studies (* see below)
has any experience using JIRA or similar tools (* see below)
*) Strong interest for business development in general, combined with experience from the industry (banking, comparison web sites), can replace the “requirement” regarding experience from similar position, relevant studies or experience with JIRA.
Why select UNO Finans?
Being part of the company right from the beginning in its first steps in Finland is ideal when creating something new and unique. You will get the opportunity to see your own personal touch very fast in action. As the number of people in the beginning are only few, you will also get to do lot of different things and learn from the market experts. We aim to keep the growth expectations for future realistic and we aim to hire more people as the business grows.
