In FOSS, we’re at the frontline of innovation, delivering analytical data of the highest quality to customers from multiple industries. In a global world with a growing population, there is an ever-increasing demand for safer food, production that is more efficient and less food waste.

Join our R&D Software department
The R&D Software department is responsible for developing software for our analytical instruments and we have many new exciting projects in the pipeline that require world-class software solutions. We are looking for a dedicated Product Owner for our software platform development. You must have a balanced interest and experience with software development, good communication skills, an agile mindset, and at least a basic understanding of UX.

Our department comprises of more than 80 software developers and makes up for about 1/3 of the R&D organization in FOSS - and we are growing. It consists of a range of teams working in business oriented segment teams, a platform team and a UX & product solutions team which you will be part of together with other skilled Product Owners and UX specialists.

You will own the vision of the software solution and the team backlog, i.e. define and prioritize features based on customer and stakeholder input. You will own reporting from the team, e.g. represent the team in management reviews. Your daily work will be at the FOSS innovation center in Hillerød Denmark, with up to 15 traveling days per year as some team members are based in Hungary.

About you
We expect you come with some of the following:

  • Experienced product owner with an agile mindset
  • A genuine interest in software and instrument development
  • At least a basic understanding of UX
  • Experience with Azure DevOps (TFS)
  • Basic Adobe XD experience – or experience with other tools for creating mockups and design specs. You will always work with assistance from experienced designers.
  • It is an advantage if you have knowledge about our customers and users, i.e. food or feed production, or experience from a laboratory.

You must be an open person, as we believe the best solutions come from team work. You possess great communication skills and can communicate complex concepts in a concise manner. You master the art of simplicity and you promote continuous improvement to the way of working for you and the team.

We offer
A challenging job, in an international and innovative company, that is small enough for you to get high influence in the job, and big enough for complex development and career development. We have a flat and informal company culture and an open-minded and collegial spirit. The size of our company allows for independent, dynamic and fast decisions, and you will have the opportunity for constant learning through new projects, technologies, teams and market opportunities.

FOSS has a solid record of continued business growth and a strong business strategy for an exciting future journey. We anticipate increased software development so there are plenty of opportunities for personal growth.
