Product Owner

London, England, United Kingdom · Product


We’re looking for a Product Owner to contribute to the future of the one of the world’s leading family history companies (with specific growth focus in the US and UK). Findmypast has more than 9 billion historical records and 18 million registered users globally, and has helped transform the way people learn about their ancestors. Family history is a high-growth market that is changing quickly, and central to our success will be the ability to ship compelling products that help our customers make discoveries about themselves and connect to their families. You’ll have experience managing products through from inception to launch and beyond, perhaps in the search, fintech or social space.

Key Responsibilities

As a Product Owner at Findmypast, your mission will be to deliver a delightful customer-centric family history experience that attracts and retains both new and existing customers. Working with colleagues, you will deliver a product strategy that is built around customer needs and will prioritise initiatives that are informed by customer insights and data, market trends, commercial imperatives and our current platforms, as well as inspired by the fast-moving technology landscape.

Working as a key member of the delivery team, you will help to build a collaborative culture that values great ideas backed up by data and customer insight, good design, and efficient, repeatable processes. You’ll be able to explain the ‘why’ and ‘how’ of the product in order to bring the product roadmap to life for your area. You will also manage the ROI for your product initiatives and features and will be able to reflect on the costs, customer impact and commercial value.

You will love getting into the detail of bringing a feature to life, and will work closely with your team to make sure work is executed to a high standard. You will support the team while influencing other teams in order to get your roadmap delivered. As a Product Owner you will work in close partnership with engineering, data/content and CRM to create simple solutions to complex customer problems. Your main focus will be ensuring that we ship easy-to-use and effective family history experiences time after time.
