Full-time / Part-time · Enschede HQ or Valencia

Your Job

  • As Technical Product Owner you are part of the product team, working to improve and expand our products.

  • Apart from working on our current core product, you may be working with our innovation unit on differentiating our product offering, including ID Wallets and machine learning based products.
  • Specific focus for you within the product team will be determined based on expertise and interest, but could, for example, be on our mobile apps.
  • You’re the internal customers to our engineering department, working closely with the (currently) four development teams we have, setting their priorities, checking the result, and taking part in the design/refinements.
  • You’re a part of the Product team, with currently two Technical Product Owners, our Lead Architect, and our Head of Product. You’ll report to the latter.
  • To get input on our roadmap, both short and long term, you look outside at the market, customers, users, and competition, and translate this into priorities.
  • You monitor and understand standards in the digital identity area, as well as relevant more generic internet standards.
  • Inverid’s engineering unit has adopted Scrum@scale. For the more innovation focused teams, we use more informal iterative (Kanban inspired) processes. 

Who are you?

  • We’re a high-tech company, have a complicated product with APIs, and we do not put the word Technical in the job description for no reason: you have a relevant technology background, typically a BSc, MSc or PhD in computer science, cyber security, machine learning or similar.

  • You have a worked as a (lead) developer, architect and/or product owner before, with > 5 years' experience in this or similar relevant role.
  • Even though we’re quite a focused company, we cover a wide range of technical subjects. You are or should become familiar with all, but in the product team we do not need everyone to be an expert in them all. Specific subjects are mobile (Swift, Kotlin), SaaS (public cloud, AWS, Kubernetes), security, cryptography, machine learning, digital identity, NFC, usability, and identity verification.
  • Good command of the English language (both writing and speaking).
  • You work at least 2 days a week at the head office in Enschede. Alternatively, if you live near Valencia, we can discuss options. 

What do we offer?

We offer a challenging work environment where you can make a difference in reducing identity fraud. You will work in a team of more than 65 highly qualified researchers, developers, architects and UX designers from 17 countries. 

Within Inverid, you will get extensive opportunities to specialise in different sectors and technologies, as a solid foundation for the rest of your career with internal and external training courses.

  • Inverid offers a competitive salary with a result-dependent variable remuneration on top.
  • Inverid offers a pension paid in full by the employer and the possibility to extend holidays.
  • We consider work-life balance very important and offer the possibility of flexible hours and working from home. Part-time is possible with a minimum of 32 hours per week.
  • Naturally, you will receive a high-end laptop (Windows or Macbook) and a phone from us.
  • We support relocation, if necessary, both financially and actively.
  • Inverid has a recognised sponsorship from the Dutch government, which makes it possible for candidates from outside the EU to obtain a work visa.
