The Technology Product Owner manages the interface to the UCC Line of Business (LOB) and, in particular, to the Business Product Manager associated with your products/platform/developments.
You will be assigned to one or more products, and their value-streams, for product development. It will be necessary to negotiate, manage and agree demand into the practice for these products and manage the backlog, finance and operational governance.
You will work with wider practice leads, vendors, technology and operations teams to build the technology plan to inform and deliver the product/platform strategy and roadmap. This will require you to have a strong technology understanding for the products that are to be developed. You will also align and prioritise technology innovation and customer co-creation for the practice.
You will negotiate, manage and agree demand into the practice and manage the finance and operational governance alongside LPM and other stakeholders.
The product owner is responsible for the ‘how’, ensuring they support the LOB product manager (accountable for the ‘what’) to build the product roadmap, advising mandatory technology capabilities, progressing impact assessments and agreeing on behalf of the practice that the final prioritised roadmap is viable from a technology, cost and delivery perspective.
You will input to the creation of product feature requirements for developments working jointly with the LOB product manager who leads this. You will then translate these into lower level product/platform/operating model requirements ensuring these are underpinned by an E2E technical architecture (inc user journeys and service models) working with other roles in Technology (e.g architects and squad leads)
You will be responsible for in-life technology management activities encompassing the E2E product architecture (inc service, operations etc) in so far that they relate to the 12 month feature level roadmap aligned to the product/portfolio strategy
