Product Owner TFC

Nederland, Noord-Holland, HilversumContent Production


A globally scaled media processing platform, infrastructure supporting high profile sports events and breaking news, infrastructure in mobile units, we have all of them. Each has their own unique challenges. NEP is looking for a highly motivated product owner to support the innovative platform TFC in achieving its goals.

The TFC platform consists of multiple products that are in the midst of their development. The core purpose of the product is to facilitate broadcast events such as the FIFA world cup, Superbowl, Formula 1, NBA, NFL and more. TFC is the platform that is used to produce and control the mentioned event. As more products will be attached to the platform TFC is looking for Product Owners with the right mindset and skill levels.

As a Product Owner you will be assigned to two teams that are currently working on multiple products that fall within the overall platform. In total there are 6 teams where three product owners will be in control of 2 teams each. The product owners will report to the Platform Manager who oversees the progress of the product as a whole and coordinates the roll-outs of the product across the globe. In your role as a product owner you will be responsible for managing the backlog, ensuring timely delivery of features and setting the right priorities based on input from your stakeholders.

As the product is under development but at the same time used for live productions, another responsibility lies in managing user(broadcast engineers across the globe) feedback. There is a servicedesk in place where users actively drop feature requests that need to be addressed and checked if they are relevant for the product. This will be done in close collaboration with the other product owners.
