Knowing the layers of our tech stack, ranging from data engineering and data science to full stack and web development is important. Equally important to this role is a transparent leadership and communication style and a passion for curation of data.


Your main responsibility will be to help implement the product vision and translate this to the product roadmap, which you'll own. This means you'll start from the high level business requirements and prioritized features.

Next to the data, you'll also help define how our customers interact with the data (via API, UI, …).
  • Translating: You will be responsible for deciding on priorities and translating business requirements to the different engineering squads. In this you are able to set clear acceptance criteria.
  • Validating and releasing: You are the end-owner of the releases, in which you are responsible for final validation: have the business rules been implemented & interpreted correctly by the teams?
  • Explaining: You'll be the SPOC for the roadmap for a wide spectrum of audiences including the management, the commercial teams and even our customers.

  • You are obsessed with working with data and data quality.
  • You enjoy working out the details.
  • You're an excellent communicator who's able to communicate both with brilliant engineers and business focussed stakeholders. You must have a good command of the English language, both written and spoken, since you'll work with people of different nationalities.
  • CV and Covering Letter must be submitted in English language.
  • You are based in either Belgium or Portugal and able to travel 25% of your time to one of these locations and customers all over Europe.
  • You have at least 5 years of professional experience, of which a minimum of 3 years in a (data) product owner/project manager role with the responsibilities defined above.
  • You have a technical background, you've had at least 2 years of software/data engineering experience so you know where the challenges lie.
  • You have worked in, or show a big interest in the retail environment, allowing you to build up domain knowledge to understand our customers & their needs even better.

Ideally, you will also:
  • Have experience with our tech stack (Snowflake, Python, AWS, …)
  • Have experience with Jira, bringing in expertise on how to structure our projects.
  • Have worked in a startup or scale-up (with > 10 software engineers) before so you know what it's like to build products from the ground up in an environment with many uncertainties & growth challenges.
  • Have experience working with stakeholders in an industry where data is not the main focus and can help showcase the value it brings.

  • Daltix believes it is powered by its people: You will be joining a team geared up for growth, giving you the unique opportunity to help shape our future as a company. Your day at work will matter. You will join a very special team; nimble, talented, international and highly motivated.
