Role description
MediaWorks is looking for a Product Owner to help the development team build LightNet and get it into the hands of ministries. 

Do you get energy from working with people? Great, that is what we are looking for! In this role you will build relationships with (potential) users and feed their insights and ideas into shaping the development of the product. You will work together with a small development team and a handful of volunteers that are contributing to development in their spare time. Over time we would love to see a motivated community of developers who can easily join development on parts or extensions of the product. We can use your help with this!

You will be the delegated visionary that makes day-to-day decisions. Together with the MediaWorks leader you will be responsible for the long-term vision of this product. You will combine an understanding of what product users want with the technical requirements from the bigger long-term vision. Another essential part of your work is weighing the pros and cons and prioritising next steps.

Could you be the product owner that clicks with the product and our team? We would love to get to know you over a digital coffee chat where we can provide more background information about this product which we are so passionate about. Before applying for this position, please get in touch to arrange an informal conversation with the LightNet team:
