Product Owner

We are looking for product owners to help us to re-invent ecommerce.  Until now, customers have gone to a website destination to find, select and order their stuff.  But the future doesn’t look like that.  In that future, customers will expect to be able to shop whether they are in their kitchen using an embedded refrigerator device, talking to their car entertainment system, on a train using their mobile device or in a smart changing room in a boutique.  What’s more, as the customer moves from device to device, the shopping experience should remain consistent and relevant.

The team at hybris Commerce as a Service is creating a new type of ecommerce where the shopping experience will be delivered to the customer on any channel or device or media – rather than building a website and asking the customer to visit it. 

To help us build our new platform, we need to attract bright and creative product owners that are brave enough to reject ecommerce dogma and be prepared to invent new ways to engage with consumers.  This will be a journey you will share with us and together we will succeed and fail in equal measures but we will not stop trying.
