We’re looking for a rising star to join our global Valo Team and lead our products to the moon as Chief Product Officer!

Valo is an independent software vendor in the Microsoft ecosystem, developing award-winning digital workplace solutions on Microsoft 365, including Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Teams. We help organizations to enhance their employee engagement by providing a digital workplace that is easy to fall in love with.

About the role

We love our partners, and they deserve all the attention we can give. Valo is setting up a new Product Management function in between the markets and product development. To simplify, the role of the team is to set the direction of the company while listening and understanding the markets. Your role is to lead the team and depending on your profile, also be part of the leadership team of Valo!

This is both a new function and a new position that allows you to build the Product Management function from the ground up. You’ll be working closely with the Product Managers, Designers, Marketing as well as Chief Product and Growth Officers.

As Chief Product Officer, you’ll take the overall ownership of the product management, including business, tech, and user experience decisions. We want to validate the future direction with the partners and customers through concepts and bi-directional communication. You’ll be a key person in raising the importance of design-thinking and portfolio-thinking at Valo. In addition, we are renewing the packaging and value proposition of our offering to be more story- and use case driven and you’ll have a key role in this work.

The preferred locations are Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, or Finland. For this role, we’re not currently able to sponsor visas or work permits.

What we are looking for

You might be the person we’re looking for if you enjoy building something completely new and value agile methods. You’re an inclusive delegator, willing to communicate both internally and externally and are open to sharing the Valo message.

In addition, this position requires the following:

  • Previous experience in product management – the role includes both setting up the function and related processes and coaching the team
  • Attitude and capability to drive change and execute
  • Understanding of principles and theories related to product management
  • Ability to conceptualize and test in agile ways
  • Problem-solving skills
  • Fluent written and spoken English is required, other languages, e.g. German, French, Finnish, Swedish, or Spanish are considered as an advantage

It is not mandatory to have experience in setting up a Product Management function before – an energetic rising star with the right kind of attitude and skills to drive change might be a perfect match.

What’s in it for you?

This is a unique opportunity to create something new and be part of the story of an award-winning digital workplace solution that rocks the Microsoft 365 world! You’ll get the chance to work with a team that includes the world’s best Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Teams professionals. This is a team of seasoned and passionate people who are ready to share their knowledge with you and help you thrive in this role.

This is a full-time position with employment benefits, a modern working environment and an excellent opportunity to build the product management function from the ground up!
