Product Owner

Full Job Specification

Cloudhouse hates hassle with a passion, especially the tedious or frustratingly complicated headaches that get in the way of delivering software to the users that need it.

There has to be a better way and we reckon we're smart enough to work out how. That's why the company was founded and we will not be stop until hassle has been banished from the world! ...of software at least. If you think you can help us slay this beast then step forward.

Right now we're looking for a top-notch Product Owner. You'll need great analytic skills, be an outstanding communicator and have enough swagger that you can get the various sides of the business to agree.

Responsibilities include:

  • Gather and analyse feature requests
  • Negotiate user stories
  • Prioritise and maintaining the backlog
  • Facilitate communication between the technical and commercial sides of the business
  • Manage roadmap and strategy
  • Communicate priorities between Sales, Support, Development and Professional Services

You'd need to have experience of:

  • Defining user stories and acceptance criteria as part of the Three Amigos (Product Owner/Dev/QA)
  • BDD (Behaviour Driven Development)
  • Striving for the Minimum Marketable Product (MMP) and Minimum Marketable Feature (MMF)
  • Conducting business, technical and market analysis

Technically we have some pretty cool problems to solve. We also seem to tackle them from a different angle from our competitors which not only differentiates us as a business but also makes the work fascinating. It may even jar some of your cherished beliefs (in a good way!) We deal with high availability, distributed caching, web technologies, low level hacking, whatever we need to do to make our customers lives as hassle free as possible.  There's also plenty of opportunities for you to come-up with your own game-changing idea.

The terms "Agile", "Lean" and even "Continuous Deployment" have become buzzwords in our industry, but we strive to actually live up to the values. We'd be lying if we said we're there yet, but we hope with your help we can get much further on that journey.


To thank you for sharing your awesomeness, we give you:

  • Company stock options
  • Plenty of holiday: The usual 20 days + public holidays but also an extra 3 days for the Christmas period and another day off for your birthday (or day after if that makes more sense!). Not only that but for every year you work here you'll get yet another day off per year, so basically if you work here till you're 200 you won't have to work at all!
  • Boring but ultimately super useful stuff like private medical insurance, contributed pension, life insurance, critical illness insurance and income protection and even ones I've never heard of like Best Doctors, EmployeeCare and a Health and a Wellbeing Advisory Service. Pretty swish.
  • Working hours compatible with having a life.
  • Personal training budget.
  • Travel season ticket loan, bike storage & shower facilities.
  • Super smart and friendly colleagues.
  • Ability to gorge yourself from our well stocked fruit bowl or with sweets, chocolates, ice creams, coffee or from our rather too tempting booze fridge.
