At ViaEurope, we've digitalized the Customs Clearance process, allowing millions of packages to be imported and transported across Europe!
As ViaEurope continues to scale up, there's a growing complexity in our business operations. Each eHub is located in a different country, with distinct operational setups and customs rules. One of the keys to our success lies in making complexity 'smooth'. Our product team is responsible for transforming complexity into a successful and smoothly operating business.
Our product team takes care of the ViaEurope platform. Together with our in-house development team, we have built three main applications, which show the lifecycle of parcels, their deliveries, and customs declarations. This includes data points for every phase of Customs Clearance, processing, and transportation, tailored to the user group and application.
The applications are: Client Portal, Staff Portal for internal usage, Android Application for logistics operational support.
As a product owner in our team, you will be collaborating with cross-functional development teams and stakeholders. You will play a pivotal role in understanding operational problems or strategic decisions and translating these into projects.
What Will Your Week Look Like?
As a Product Owner, you will shape the success of our business. You'll be at the forefront of driving innovation and efficiency in our product development, ensuring that our e-logistics solutions meet the evolving needs of our clients and stay ahead of industry trends. Your strategic decisions will directly impact the user experience, operational workflows, and overall competitiveness of our services.
You will collaborate independently with stakeholders on multiple topics and are expected to take full ownership of projects. You will be working directly with the tech team. To give you an idea, we'd like to share with you three examples of project subjects:
As a product owner, you will work on different inquiries such as feature request or improvements directly impacting ViaEurope’s roadmap. You will define backlog items and priorities using data-driven insights and user knowledge, based on product owner best practices. You will present projects and milestones to stakeholders; and eventually, become an expert in certain fields within our platform. You will be the point of contact for tech but also other stakeholders regarding implementation of features. You have a pragmatic approach, with a curiosity drive and a desire to understand every part of the business, as well as the drive to ask questions and find solutions, will make you the best fit for our team.
How we work
We work in English and we believe that concise and effective written and verbal communication affects the quality of our work and defines a successful team.
