  • Collaborate with Business Analyst team to prepare feature specs and acceptance criteria for User Stories that are completed comprehensively and on-time.
  • Collaborate with QA team to ensure deliverables meet acceptance criteria and perform User Acceptance Testing.

  • CSPO or equivalent Product Owner certification is a huge plus.
