Job Description

The Mezi team manages our Mobile Messaging capabilities for Travel and Concierge. We are looking for a Product Owner to assist with the ongoing management and development of these products. To be successful in this role, you will need to combine strategic and creative thought leadership, broad business knowledge, a deep understanding of our customer and their needs and be comfortable in a fast changing, dynamic and very innovative and iterative environment. The successful candidate will be helping to drive the strategic expansion of Chat & Messaging, introducing these channels to new customer touch points, new businesses and new markets. You'll partner closely with our technologies teams, taking innovative proven ideas from validated hypotheses to executed opportunities. You'll collaborate with the Customer Experience team, ensuring that everything you do aligns to the current and future design principals of Messaging.
