Product Owner

We believe that excellent software is the result of highly skilled and motivated employees collaborating in teams applying modern methods and practices in the software industry. At Visma Raet we deliver software that simplifies and digitises core business processes in the private and public sector. By helping millions of customers run their business every day (yes, you’re welcome!), we give companies a competitive edge and individuals time to focus on what they love.

An important part of our service to the market is our reliable Payroll, including the tax- & pension delivery and payment management solution. Solid as a rock and steady as she goes. Making sure that our customers’ taxes, pensions and payments are handled correctly and in time is one of the main pillars we rely on in Youforce, our product, where we help Government and Healthcare organisations to work more efficiently and let them keep control. Quite important as you may understand, so we are looking for a Product Owner who can keep up this high standard and evolve the product both technically and functionally.

Are you up for the challenge within the Software Development Champion’s League?

Your challenge
Being responsible for the deliveries of the Declaration Domain, as we call it, is an energetic challenge. You are the linking pin between product management, internal stakeholders, product marketing, development and testing. Talking to the tax authority (Belastingdienst), Pension Funds and Payment institutes does not scare you. You want to get the very last detail right and make sure that everyone is on the same page, so we can implement the best solutions for our users. Yes, our users. You are the voice of the Declaration Domain for our users as well. New developments you will check with them. Any issues in the current solution? You will talk to them to understand what is up. In Visma we believe our users are key to better software. And you are the keyholder.

And what’s more, we are currently going through a major project evolving the Declaration domain towards a future proof, technologically advanced solution, that will keep our fundament steady for years to come.
