Here is the challenge

Key to our strategy is our Analytics platform which is designed and built by a team of Data Engineers, Analytics Engineers, Data Analysts and Data Scientists.

As felyx’ Data Product Owner, you’re orchestrating the D&A team in terms of data product development. You will play a vital role in steering felyx’ data products and in maximizing the value of our Analytics services to our users. The role will encompass both the development of backlogs, stakeholder engagement, supporting our Agile way-of-working and hands-on Analytics as well as assisting our Head of D&A with developing roadmaps, stakeholder management and strategic planning.

We are looking for someone who is self-starting, passionate about developing data driven products, not afraid to iterate quickly and try new things, keen to constantly evolve our approach. Above all you will be passionate about all things Data and Analytics and have hands-on experience with creating data insights.

You will have the chance to make a big difference to the team and make felyx an even more data driven organization.

What you will be doing at Felyx:

  • Take ownership of assigned features and lead the creation and prioritization of the team backlog
  • Support the development of the D&A roadmap and achieving sprint and quarterly goals
  • Defining epics and user stories together with relevant stakeholders
  • Communicating across the organization: making sure everyone understands what features and enhancements are being delivered in what time frames and the purpose behind them
  • Preparing and leading biweekly scrum events
  • Supporting the creation of a high performing data team by being the guild lead of the Data Analysts and Analytics Engineers
  • Lead the way in developing high quality data pipelines and creating dashboards and insights

  • Conduct user research, build and develop working relationships with a range of stakeholders including Analysts and Data Scientists, Customer Service, Operations and Marketing managers and staff, finance and source system product owners and developers
  • Maintain an up-to-date knowledge of the Data and Analytics industry and align roadmap with best practice

And important not to forget: we encourage you to grow with the company and within your role as we are continually on our journey towards ‘world domination’. Just kidding, market leader in Europe will do (for now).


How to know if you are perfect for the job:

  • Have at least 2 years of experience in a Product Owner or Product Manager role within Data and Analytics and have experience in leading a team
  • Have at least 3 years of hands-on experience in building dashboards and creating data insights
  • Knowledge and understanding of Cloud Data Platforms and Data Exploitation concepts such as Data Lakes and Warehouses, ELT, Automated Reporting, Business Intelligence, Insight and Analytics and Machine Learning
  • Strong SQL skills and proficient in leveraging BI tooling (e.g. Tableau, Metabase, Superset) to understand the data, prove what is possible with that data, test quality and communicate that to technical and non-technical audiences
  • Commercial understanding of how to use data to add value to a business through either improved revenue or increased efficiency
  • Driving and managing the complete lifecycle of data products: from concept to user, from raw data to dashboards and ML/AI models.
  • Thrive on stakeholder management and love to work with both internal and external stakeholders
  • Ask for help and feedback pro-actively, and dare to give feedback to others
  • Are fluent in written and spoken English

What would make you even more perfect (but don’t worry, this is a plus):

  • Have previously worked in cross functional product teams using Agile methodologies such as Scrum or Kanban
  • Have experience working with geospatial data
  • You love the colour green & riding e-mopeds

Benefits for you:

You will work in a transparent, fast-growing and inspirational environment in which you are able to take the lead over your own career and will get challenged on a daily basis!

And next to that:

  • 29 paid days off on a full-time basis: 28 on the roll and a day off on your birthday! (yay!)
  • You will get free felyx minutes, of course.
  • We want to invest in your future: a good pension plan is therefore in place (1/3 employee, 2/3 employer).
  • We offer 6 weeks of paternity leave with 100% salary for all (upcoming) dads.
  • Great office with great food options (& obviously free coffee, duh!) just 10 minutes from Amstel Station.

One more thing: Don’t worry about buying a suit just yet, our interview process will be online or by phone, and the office dressing code is: be comfortable and come as you are!

Okay, one last thing: In case you are doubting if you meet all the requirements, still apply! We love people and we don’t hire based only on words and cv documents.

And, if you might know someone who fits the requirements better, don’t be afraid to share it with them! We have a variety of openings and you might both end up working at Felyx. If you are a smart person and are excited about the company, you will most likely find a place here.

At felyx we believe
that the best workplace is one that represents the world we live in today. This means we believe that diversity in the broadest sense of the word connects us and drives us forward as a company.

We believe that diversity goes hand in hand with different perspectives. It is these different perspectives that can help us become better and more innovative in finding solutions for our customers.

And because we believe this can be achieved, we are looking for colleagues who are intrinsically motivated and bring the right experience. Gender, age, sexual orientation or origin will never be a factor and will never become one.
