Technical Product Owner, Sports Data Platform
Better Collective
há 1 dia


As Technical Product Owner for our Sports Data Platform (SDP), you are responsible for one of the key components in Better Collective’s overall service architecture.

The vision for the SDP is to be the central hub for managing all sports data that we consume in the group. It is used to unify the structure of our sports data, through the normalization and the mapping of feeds coming from different providers.

Ultimately, the SDP provides feeds to power front-end applications and components that we use on sites across the World.

The SDP is being maintained and developed by a dedicated scrum team based in Lodz, Poland. Your role will be to understand and translate the needs of the business into a vision for this service and to communicate this clearly to the team, releasing features in iterative increments.

While the developers in the team are in charge of determining the best architecture and technical approach for this job, you should be ready to understand their lingo and take part in some technical discussions.

The primary customers of the SDP are typically front-end developers working in other teams within Better Collective, so it is fair to say that this role is for a technically-minded person, although prior coding experience is not required.

We prefer face-to-face communication whenever possible, but you can also expect to use Jira, Slack, and Google Hangout a lot in your daily routine.


  • Establish and communicate the vision for the SDP shared service within Better Collective
  • Work with Business Owners to continuously keep track of their needs with regards to sports data
  • Manage day-to-day contact with Better Collective’s sports data providers and pass key requirements to them
  • Liaise with other scrum teams to identify tech and non-functional requirements
  • Lead the development team by clearly articulating the product goal and managing the backlog on a daily basis
  • You have experience (and maybe formal certification) as a Product Owner or Project Manager, ideally for a technical product.
  • You are a strong communicator of everything from high-level goals to small details.
  • You can facilitate meetings that lead to clear action plans.
  • You are highly structured and never forget a task.
  • You are able to break down complex problems into (simple) steps.
  • You are able to flag risks and communicate them confidently.
  • You develop efficient processes where stakeholders are involved at the right times.
  • You are able to get a team to rally and focus on delivery goals.
  • You speak tech lingo fluently and terms such as release branch , single page application , API or XML feed don’t scare you.
  • You have a good knowledge of sports (European football and / or main US sports leagues), ideally of betting too.

  • Health & Life Insurance
  • Co-working space that offers coffee and fruit throughout the day
  • IT equipment at the office and to work from home
  • Flexible working hours
  • Conferences and training / education possibilities

    We are looking forward to hearing from you as soon as possible and we accept applications continuously until we find the right match.

    We will process your application quickly and get back to you.

    While applying, share with us your CV where we can find information about your past / current experience and visit open-access spaces where you keep your public projects (GitHub link, etc.)
