The Opportunity

Are you looking to make the transition from Software Delivery to defining and owning the products/services that you deliver? Then this could be your chance as Star Requirements Manager. 

In our experience, we see that the most successful candidates come from Business Analysis, Engineering and QA backgrounds because they have already developed a deep understanding of the requirements process through both the ideation and product definition stages.

What do we do

We’ve been working with a number of companies over the years, from startups to huge corporations and everything in between. Key areas of expertise include Automotive, Fitness, Healthcare, AdTech, Data Science, and Consumer Electronics. Below are just a sample of products that we have been working on:

  • Waggit – cutting-edge health and happiness monitor for dogs (exceeded the Kickstarter goal x5 times, and now in production)
  • Expensify – helping automate tedious expense reporting (has processed 660 million expenses, for over 5 million users)
  • Netpulse – the largest provider of branded health club software, with the main focus on mobile (thousands of gyms, and millions of monthly active users in 40+ countries)
  • …and many others, please follow for details.

You will be great fit if

  • You have practical experience acting as a Product Owner for custom software products
  • You are passionate about technology and figuring out how things work
  • You can explain technical concepts simply, to both technical and non-technical people
  • You know what designers, engineers, QA, marketing, support, and various business stakeholders expect when it comes to product requirements and backlog
  • You are a strong communicator, meaning that your emails are structured and your speech is smooth (all of that, in English)
  • You are extremely well-organized and love to keep things in order

A bit more on qualifications:

  • You worked on custom-built software products (web, mobile, API, IoT etc.)
  • You know how to manage requirements in an Agile environment
  • You have a good command of English: think IELTS band 6.5 or higher
