Are you free next week for 6 months?

As I am working with an aviation client who are looking for a Senior Product Owner to help improve their data platforms.

This is hybrid working at 5 days a week with someone to ideally come into their offices in Central Leeds, 13 minutes walk from the main train station for 1 – 2 days a week, and the other 3 – 4 days can be remote.

+ this is an Outside IR35 role : )


They need to make it easy to search and book, deliver their schedule on time and safely, and create holiday experiences while always ensuring their customers have peace of mind that this brand is always with them to help. To do that it takes a committed team alongside a lot of digital tools to make it happen. They need to deliver great digital experiences for their customers, but they also need to provide those experiences to their colleagues and suppliers to help create and facilitate the experience.

They have a vast estate of digital products, data and processes and their Product Owners are at the forefront of building and improving these. As a Product Owner, you’ll work across large areas of the business, such as pre booking, post booking, finance and legal, airline and holiday operations, or business continuity.

You’ll help define product strategy, ideate, and create solutions that deliver for their customers, colleagues, and supply chain, alongside delivering the operational and financial targets of the business.

What you’ll be doing:

  • Gain a deep understanding of their customer and how the availability of improved data and data products can enable them to deliver the best experiences within your area of ownership.
  • Work in and help lead multi-disciplinary teams from across the business to validate, grow and scale ideas that their customers, colleagues, and supply chain love.
  • Validate the feasibility and deliver solutions that their users want and delivers against their business objectives
  • Defining problem statements, creating, and validating ideas, shipping releases, all with purpose and reason.
  • Owning problems and outcomes, using data to track metrics that are important, and showing that you are improving them based on a clear set of objectives.
  • Supporting delivery functions and helping manage backlogs to build data centric technology products.

To do this you will:

  • Work hand in hand with internal departments to understand the needs of the business.
  • Work closely with counterparts in design, business analysis and data engineering to define solutions
  • Help facilitate problem solving, you are not the person with all the ideas, ideas can come from anywhere, you need a framework to help create best solutions.
  • Keep everyone who needs to know in the know, whether that’s defining objectives, prioritising, and agreeing roadmaps or keeping people informed of releases and recent successes (or failures)

What you will need:

  • A strong track record of shipping great data products that users love.
  • To be experienced in working closely with data visualisation, data engineering and data scientists
  • Familiar with data products and data technologies
  • To be comfortable of being accountable against agreed objectives and outcomes
  • A framework to create ideas and validate solutions to deliver against clear objectives
  • Experience in utilising data and be comfortable using it to highlight performance
  • To be an effective communicator at all levels and areas of the business with strong stakeholder management skills
