Technical Product Owner for George (all genders)

Job description

Banking has a name. And we create it.

For over 8 million customers across Europe, George stands for a digital banking experience that combines design and technology on an open platform. At the George Labs, we strive for everyone. We achieve this by empowering people to understand, manage and, last but not least, enjoy one of their most personal things: their money.

Join us in our agile environment and make banking simple, intelligent, and personal!

As a Technical Product Owner (all genders) for our 3rd party integration team, you can have a real impact on the financial health of millions. If you are excited about shaping and creating a highly appealing banking experience, you should continue reading. If you are eager to enter also other areas and have a holistic view on product development, you might be a real fit.

George is an open platform and adapts to the needs of his users. You strongly believe in the power of cooperation, and you understand how to build and nurture this environment. But you know that this needs to be set on a proper stage. You are not afraid of being a pioneer, so dealing with our legal departments and crazy fintechs at the same time is not an issue for you. You understand platform as an open environment to build services and new features together with other parties. You see the need to come up with a toolkit. You would build and maintain an enabling infrastructure for web and mobile to make that happen.
