  • Product Owner (AI)

    £ 50k
    Job ID: 03186

    Our client is looking for a Product Owner with around 2-3 years’ experience who has a good foundation of understanding with the software development lifecycle, as well as experience working with various teams and speaking to client representatives.

    The role is ideal for an experienced developer who is looking to move away from implementing solutions to devising them, or for a passionate and technically-minded project manager.

    Experience with projects involving machine learning or AI would be beneficial but not compulsory.

    The Company
    Our client is an established business that is a recognised leader in Artificial Intelligence with two in-market Conversational AI SaaS products. Customers already using these products include FTSE 100 and 250 organisations.

    As well as building out a portfolio of AI-powered SaaS products, our client has unique IP and experience working within Conversational AI and Natural Language Processing (NLP). This has led the company to work with organisations on bespoke AI-related enterprise-class application development and become an AI Partner to Microsoft, who are co-selling their products.

    The company has four sites across the globe and currently employs 85 FTEs and is looking to scale rapidly.

    The Role

    As a Product Owner, you will join the company’s highly-driven team in their head office in Wokingham, UK, to represent the fusion of technology with business insight and work to build bespoke software applications that are tailor-made to suit their clients’ needs. In this role, you will work confidently alongside account managers and clients, using your knowledge of technology and software development to formulate solutions that meet their clients’ expectations. 

    Your role will be to analyse client requirements, identify and implement suitable technological solutions that anticipate future client needs. With highly technological knowledge, you should have the skills to look at clients’ business problems and come up with creative ideas that exceed the original proposal.

    You will also need to have a keen interest in technology, strong desire to learn and keep on top of the latest trends. Experience with projects involving machine learning or AI would be beneficial but not compulsory.
