Product Owner: Behaviour Change and Transaction Apps
Mobile technology is revolutionizing how organizations engage with their end users. More than 96% of the world’s population has access to a mobile phone, meaning it is now possible to reach nearly every single person on the planet. Yet 3 billion people living in emerging markets still lack access to relevant, timely, and engaging information in their local languages, and their voices remain underheard. The organizations that serve them lack the technology and capacity to reach them, and many are unaware of the power of mobile technology to meet their organizational goals.
Viamo connects individuals and organisations using digital technology to make better decisions.
With more than 25 million people reached in 2020 alone, we are well on our way to meeting our goal of reaching 50M people annually by 2023.
About the role
In the last few months, Viamo has been experimenting with new products that allow our users not only to gather and share information, but also take action on the knowledge they have gained. For example, farmers in Nepal can now sell their crops through Viamo’s platform; patients in Nigeria can book clinic appointments; and mothers in Madagascar can redeem vouchers for healthcare – all through their simple (non-smart) mobile phones.
Our vision is complete digital inclusion: for the 4B people who have access to a simple mobile phone – literate or not – to be able to conduct the same activities on their mobile phones as English-literate smartphone users: find answers to their questions, connect with friends and family, buy and sell products, book appointments, take classes, etc.
Viamo’s Behavior Change and Transaction (BCT) Product creates value by allowing our mobile users to access the off-line products and services offered by our partners in all major social impact sectors: international development, healthcare, financial services, telecommunications, agriculture, consumer goods, etc.
The Product Owner’s mandate is therefore to maximize the impact and grow the adoption of this product by: creating a long-term vision for this product, improving its functionality and usability, building a strong brand, upgrading its implementation process, and forging strategic partnerships with complementary organizations.
The Product Owner for the Behavior Change and Transaction Product will join a new team of Product Owners at Viamo. We are excited to create this team to provide more strategic direction to our offering and increase the impact and value created for our partners. At Viamo, the Product Owners are responsible for the creation and implementation of the product strategy. They work in collaboration with our team of Product Managers within the engineering team who are responsible for leading the product development work.
Some of the key activities of the Product Owner include:
