📋  Context

In light of our growth, we are looking to add a Product Owner to our Tech team for the unit (or, as we like to call it, «YounIT») Conversion.

At Younited, the quality of the collaboration between the Product Manager and the Product Owner is the key to success: the Product Manager defines the strategic priorities of the product along with the KPIs to measure its success, whereas the Product Owner oversees the delivery of the products and the prioritization of the associated backlog.

You will drive the implementation of new high-value business products with the aim of revolutionizing the finance world of tomorrow: nothing more, nothing less !

Conversion is a team in charge of the Younited’s Front !
