  • Do you have experience in leading the development of mission critical products?
  • Can you take an Agile customer-focussed approach to product development and operations?
  • LINZ has initiated a long-term programme to modernising New Zealand's Land Information platform & services. To achieve this, we have designed a comprehensive work programme, which will be delivered in four tranches over five years, with work prioritised to provide benefits for customers and mitigate security concerns as quickly as possible.

    To support us in our ongoing transformation work, we are looking for a savvy, technically sound and passionate Product Owner to join us immediately on a 12 month fixed-term to lead a squad focused on enabling the migration of our core mission critical services to a new platform and solving challenges along the way.

    This fantastic role will allow you to be involved in challenging and politically visible work that impacts positively on New Zealand's future.

    Our product owners are involved in all aspects of the design, creation, testing and maintenance of the revamped system and you will be owning the product vision, leading customer and stakeholder engagement and balancing product delivery with integrity in a Scaled Agile (SAFe) environment.

    As a senior member of an Agile squad, you will own the backlog, participate in refinement, and develop and collectively evolve your product.

    You will work closely with a scrum master and the rest of your squad, including working with customer groups from the outset.

  • Proven experience in an Agile product ownership role
  • Ability to partner and lead at the customer and business interface
  • Ability to collaborate across multiple squads, more traditional teams and wider LINZ to coordinate designs, dependencies and releases
  • Knowledge of New Zealand's property system an advantage
