Business (Finance, HR etc.)
Code Factory is the corporate startup of Deutsche Kreditbank AG located in the heart of Berlin.
Our Mission: creating tomorrow’s banking! By developing and realizing sustainable solutions for DKB customers, we’re transforming DKB from a financial institute into an agile IT company with a banking license.
We’re always looking for new ideas on how to make banking better and make a real difference in people’s lives.
For us, digitization does not mean replacing employees, but rather making them ready for the future and the challenges ahead.
By constantly developing new ideas, we not only provide our customers with the best possible service, but also support DKB in faster implementations of their social projects. From windmills to kindergardens or hospitals - our work has an impact on our society, which motivates us every day.
We believe in people development and lifelong learning. That’s why we like to experiment with new technologies and methods. Our team consists of 40 people from 18 nations. 40 curious people, that work towards a common goal and empower each other.
We are not afraid of failure, we just never do some ;) we learn from experiences and try to become better every day - true to the motto: “Trial and Error”. Even if our new recruiting campaign says something different ;)
Do you want to turn one of Germany's leading online bank into a tech bank? Nice. Let's have a chat.
We are looking for an experienced Product Owner who is capable of designing a unified and consistent API for banking products and backend services. Someone who guides development and owns responsibility for all API modules.
You know how to convert business and functional requirements into realizable user stories? You could be just the person we are looking for. You're not building "just another API-layer" - it's more than that - you'll build the entire infrastructure from scratch. So if you basically snack on APIs all day long, let's get cooking!
Having seen and worked in a fast-paced environment before would be beneficial. Maybe you come from a grown-up startup in e-commerce or even FinTech. You've heard about regulatory aspects of banking and know that security and reliability count? Awesome. Ideally, you have seen a corporate startup from the inside or have an idea how communication and processes can differ from SMEs (Bonus if you know how to maintain agility in such an environment too!). After all, turning a bank into a tech company might need some persistence, as well. If your German is fluent, we should meet for coffee.
You will guide the development and own all API modules. You will build a unified/consistent API for banking products and backends with your team as a part of something bigger to come.
Your task will be to convert business and functional requirements into realizable API user stories. In order to execute this, we need you to order and prioritize the sprint backlog to best achieve sprint objectives & business logic. You will need to analyze existing applications within DKB infrastructure in order to help to create technical specifications for product features and ensure the development team understands items in the product backlog. You also need to ensure that the development team is provided with all means to release the product to test and production environments. You'll set the definition of done & ready. You'll conduct quality control, coordinate a product roadmap that aligns with company goals, own all product and process documentation, and collaborate closely with Product Owners for frontend and apps to align roadmaps and anticipate infrastructure requirements.
You should bring 4 or more years of experience as Product Owner or a similar position of tech products. We don't require you to have an academic background but need you to convince us that you have the right experience and attitude. You will require in-depth knowledge of agile processes and development methods and should be used to working in small teams. You have sharp analytical and problem-solving skills, have strong attention to detail, outstanding social competence and communication & leadership skills. You have the ability to communicate knowledge, requirements, and results to multiple sets of stakeholders and are able to motivate, coordinate & drive a product team with a broad variety of professional backgrounds. You need to be fluent in German. That's, unfortunately, a must. Bonus: Knowledge of banking processes & regulatory environment, and Fintech/Regtech or similar background.
We offer flexible working hours, as well as a self-improvement and advanced training budget. We do Team building events together and you can choose your own hardware, and drinks, for that matter. As a bank, we also provide a Prepaid Credit Card for your personal shopping trip every month. While it's boring, we also have an insurance plan for you - but because you get discounts on a gym membership (Urban Sports Club), we hope you stay fit and will never need it ;)
Our office is located in Berlin's vivid FinTech community with great activities at H:32 (next to Train Station Berlin Zoo), which offers a great work environment - and so does our team.
Last but not least, we offer a competitive salary with 30 days of vacation a year.
