Job description

PastBook allows people around the globe to turn their photos into high-quality, personalized printed photo books (and more) through innovative technology - in seconds. We are a fast-growing B2C scale up serving a global market, printing on 4 continents and shipping to 150+ countries. Last years we were included in the list of Deloitte's Technology Fast50 growers in 2019 and 2020, and in the FT1000 list of Europe's fastest-growing companies in 2020 and 2021. But frankly, we’ve only just begun.

It's our mission to change the way people relive meaningful memories and bring a lot of joy to people's lives. We are a diverse team of technology enthusiasts from all over the world (14 nationalities), all having one thing in common; we love what we do!

Great things are coming our way, such as launching new photo products, which will change the way we interact with our clients. Over the coming time we will continue to innovate the photo print industry and we have the ambition to further scale up our business, growing both our team as well as market share.

This is why we are looking for a Product Owner to join our Product team. You love creating roadmaps & userstories. You are the bridge between our tech team and other stakeholders,  everyone is aligned and knows what to do. You'll be the gatekeeper of all ideas, making sure that we focus on the right projects in the right time. 

In this role you will be wearing different hats, functioning as a product owner, product manager and project manager. This sounds challenging (and it is), but will also give you full ownership and the chance to make sure that everything you create, will be executed in the right way. A role with massive impact and a lot of responsibility. You will be working closely with our CPO/Founder which will allow you to make decisions fast.
