AssistiveWare's office

Product owner for company with an awesome social mission

Have you always wanted to work for a company with a real social mission? This is your chance! For almost 20 years we’ve been developing products to help people live a more fulfilling and complete life. Over the past 10 years, our focus has narrowed. Our mission is to empower people with communication difficulties through innovative technology.

Our users are at the heart of what we do. Many of our users are autistic, have cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and/or vision and fine motor, vision or cognitive challenges. We are proud to collaborate with our users to make sure our apps best serve their needs. Our users play a crucial role in who we are.

We are a very motivated bunch. We work hard to create something that not only makes us proud but changes the lives of those who need it. But all that energy, ambition and passion needs channeling, which is where you come in!

We are looking for a product owner to help us plan, roadmap, prioritize and all that product owning goodness. If you choose to work with us you’ll collaborate with our broad team of specialists including UX designers, clinical experts, communication specialists and more! You would share the office with a very international group of lovely humans and two wonderful cats: Starsky and Hutch.

We are looking for someone already living in the Netherlands with at least three years of software product manager or product owner experience.

  • A bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering or another relevant study
  • 3+ years as a product owner (or product manager), preferably for mobile apps
