Be brave, not perfect.
- Reshma Saujani

We operate an agile working model, so you’ll be asked to spend at least 2 – 3 days working in our Telford office so you can collaborate with your team.

As the fastest-growing fibre network in the UK, you could say we’re changing things up. Not only are we unlocking the digital potential of an entire nation, but we’re also constantly evolving, to give our people the most seamless employee experience possible. We’re doing this by creating a sense of purpose among our teams and offering career development opportunities the like of which has never been seen before. We’re a company that cares about people, places and new possibilities. Could this be the fresh start you’re looking for?

A rewarding career

If you’re going to be changing it up, you deserve to be looked after. That’s why we’re offering a salary of up to £60,000 depending on experience. On top of that, you’ll be able to enjoy plenty of benefits like 25 days’ holiday, a day off on your birthday, a day off to support a charity or organisation of your choice, a performance-related bonus scheme, and private healthcare to name just a few.

How can you change it up?

We’re at a pivotal point in our journey – we’re growing fast, we have ambitious goals and the demand for excellent digital experiences is bigger than ever.

This is where we need you.

Acting as our product guardian, you’ll work closely with the software development team and wider business to understand and prioritise requirements (for both our customers and internal teams), translating them into achievable features to be worked on.

You’ll be involved from start to finish – from initial stakeholder engagement, to removing any project blockers and finally analysing performance and success.

What will you bring?

There are many different things that make up a great Product Owner, like working well to deadlines and thinking creatively to solve problems, but there are a few core areas of experience we’re looking for outside of these, to really make sure you shine in this role.

  • Working with an Agile software development team
  • Created and facilitated road mapping sessions
  • An understanding of Test-Driven Development and Behaviour Driven Development

If you’ve just found yourself nodding and thinking, ‘I can do that!’, things are about to get exciting.

Our unique culture

So that’s the role, now let us tell you a bit more about life at CityFibre. We’ve built a diverse, inclusive and authentic workplace that offers anyone the chance to grow a new career. We’re a Times Top 50 Employer for Women, have partnerships with Work180, Vercida and Disability Confidence, just to name a few – it inspires us day-to-day. The foundations of our teams are rooted in respect, development and continuous support. Our people are already changing it up, are you ready to join them?
