Intro

Do you want to proactively contribute to designing the future of mobility? Are you interested in optimising and developing a key component of the FREE NOW business in a challenging role with a lot of responsibility?

If the answer is yes, then we have the right role for you based in the heart of Barcelona.

As Product Owner of the FREE NOW Driver Tools, you are responsible for the optimization of our operation processes and driver self-service via our Driver Tool Products. They are the backbone to operate the business of mobility without limits via our services. Your work will contribute directly to the ongoing success and growth of FREE NOW in one of the most dynamic markets of our times.

FREE NOW encourages a strong team spirit and simple company culture. Our teams organise themselves in established agile working environments. People at FREE NOW work flexibly and independently. Every single employee is a part of our success story and so, open communication and a fair feedback culture come naturally to us.

We are passionate problem-solvers who listen and understand before we act. By working together – with each other, customers, drivers and cities - we make things better. Besides a lot of fun and potential to make a real difference, you will have the opportunity to work with the best team in the world (we know, everybody says so, but at FREE NOW it’s true)!

As Product Owner at FREE NOW you will:

  • Be part of the Driver Tools tribe - the backbone of the operations - in order to push it to its next level
  • Work closely with the product department in Hamburg/Barcelona and stakeholders across Europe
  • Understand the users of the tools through working with Business Intelligence, executing tests and overseeing UX/UI research, in order to find out and work on the main problems
  • Define and communicate product requirements and specifications by thinking creatively about how to solve problems that have never been solved before at this scale
  • Collaborate with key stakeholders, engineers and designers to define a winning strategy
  • Shape the product roadmap together with our developers, the Prioritization Committee and stakeholders
  • Maintain a prioritized product backlog in partnership with the technical team
  • Fail fast, learn fast and move fast to deliver real customer and business value
  • Adapt and understand different cultures and market environments. Traveling to our offices around Europe is key
  • Work closely with our teams to improve the development process across our European markets
