Sofia Family helps families develop healthy digital habits for a lifetime by providing a hardware + software solution that simplifies cross device time management for gaming, social media and entertainment across consoles, computers and mobile devices. 

We are gearing up for our Beta and commercial launch and are in need of a Technical Product Owner to take our team efficiency and quality to the next level.

The Role
You are an experienced Technical Product Owner or Product Owner / Scrum Master and have a proven track-record with 4+ years of experience running teams and releasing and building a variety of products in SaaS, mobile and Web.

In addition to ensuring the effective and efficient release of quality product features and enhancements,  you will also work with other team members to ensure that our platform is backed with solid infrastructure, data pipeline, test automation and CI for our backend and front-end applications. You will be a key member in helping to shape our platform and processes as we go from beta to launch over the next few months and beyond.

As Technical Product Owner, you will be working with the team on a variety of technologies including:
  • Our backend API and services (Node+TS+Serverless: Mongo, Redis, PubSub, MQTT) on GCP
  • Native Client applications on Android, Windows, MacOS, iOS (using various languages) Web Applications (React+Redux)
  • VPN Client and Server software
