Socialive is a live video SaaS company based in Los Angeles. Our platform enables enterprises to easily create high-quality video content for distribution across social and digital channels. We simplify video content creation for teams across the organization — from social marketing and corporate comms, to recruitment, to internal comms and learning & development. Our customers include J.P. Morgan, McDonald's, Adobe, AMC Theatres, and Audible.

The Role:

The Product Owner will take responsibility for executing on the product roadmap, working closely with our talented Engineering team to evolve the platform based on customer feedback and market needs.

We want someone who’s passionate about Agile and has a proven track record of bringing products and features to market. Reporting directly to the VP of Product, you will transform ideas into detailed user stories and specifications. Additionally, we need a great communicator who can work equally well with the Engineering and the customer account teams to successfully drive our leading-edge solution forward. This is a big career opportunity for the right candidate, so hunger to win is essential to be considered.

Responsibilities:

• Collaborate closely with Engineering, Product Management, QA, and other stakeholders to turn product features into prioritized work for your team.
• Manage the delivery of customer and business value by owning the team’s backlog: you will define and prioritize stories, establish acceptance criteria, identify cross-dependencies, and always keep your backlogs updated.
• Create and write detailed story requirements and product specifications.
• Obtain story estimates from the team by conducting refinement meetings.
• Seek out opportunities to connect the team with end users and stakeholders to enhance their understanding of and empathy for our customers.
• Review your teams’ deliverables and lead daily stand-ups, sprint/product demonstrations, user acceptance tests, and launch plans as necessary.
• Lead retrospective meetings to continuously inspect and adapt for the next development cycle.
• Collaborate with Product Management, Marketing, and Customer Success to define and plan releases.
• Provide input and feedback to Product Management on the product roadmap and overall product vision.
• Own gathering metrics and measurement for the features released through your backlog, and you will use them to inform future direction.

Qualifications:

• Proven record of bringing innovative, usable, and great-looking products to market
• 5+ years of experience in software product development
• 2+ years of experience as Product Owner or Product Manager in a B2B SaaS environment
• Expert in SCRUM/Kanban and Scrum Master responsibilities
• Ability to understand complex ideas and problem statements, break them down into smaller, sequentially planned increments of value, while understanding the larger product and engineering inter-dependencies to build and deliver the right solutions.
• Must be an expert leveraging Jira and accompanying tools to manage an agile software development process
• Is self-motivated and capable of working effectively without direct oversight
• Can manage multiple development tracks simultaneously and meet key deadlines
• We have a distributed engineering and product team so you must be adept at working with remote teams with strong communication skills
• Ability to constantly juggle multiple projects and priorities
• Ability to learn quickly and hit the ground running

Preferred skills:

• Video product/production experience
• Familiar with social media strategies and platforms
