About this Opportunity

Salesforce Product Owner

The Salesforce Product Owner is responsible for translating vision and roadmap into squad deliverables to achieve the business strategy, aligned with maximizing value to the client. This is done through managing scope and product backlog in collaboration with the Salesforce squad, Product Manager, and key stakeholders. The person in this role needs to understand the details, features, functions, and stories within an Agile environment, and align these items to the strategy of an organization. Having access to high-level strategy all the way down to granular details is vital for a Salesforce Product Owner to know. The Salesforce PO won't have all the answers, but they must have the skills to be able to gather this information from SMEs and the customer.
