Senior Product Owner with Author-it

If you’re a sharp, experienced product owner with a solid SaaS background, then this could be your next great move!

We’re growing fast, join us for the ride.

What if you could join an international SaaS organisation, as they continue to expand?

At Author-it (ASC) we provide an innovative cloud-based content development platform that lets businesses create, use and share content and critical documentation from anywhere in the world, and right now, we’re ready to grow. We have two products serving different industries: Docuvera focuses on SaaS solutions for the Life Sciences content lifecycle, while Author-it focuses on e-learning and technical publications. We’re scaling up our product offering and building on our impressive client base - and we’re doing it fast.

Play a key role where you make a real impact.

We’re looking for a sharp, detail-focused product expert to play a senior role in how we deliver our products, and how our customers experience them. Sound like you?

Get ready to work closely with our razor-sharp product teams across engineering, QA and User Experience, to plan and drive the development of our software features. In many ways, you’ll be the voice of the customer – with a heavy hand in our platform UX, you’ll help design the way our customers experience Life Sciences.

Put your unique skills to work

You might currently be an experienced Product Owner, or you might be a Senior level BA with ambitions of stepping up. Either way you will have worked strongly in the product space - you’ll have outstanding communication skills and some good solid experience in requirements documentation. You’ve got a relevant degree under your belt, tonnes of product experience and a solid background in SaaS Services, ideally with Enterprise level products, so you’ll be a subject matter expert across:

  • search
  • workflow
  • collaboration
  • reporting
  • data migrations, and
  • translation services.

On top of that, you’re naturally great with people. You’ll bring teams together, liaise with a variety of different stakeholders, control all the moving parts. And you’ll do it with a cool head, and spot-on eye for detail.

Watch your ideas take shape.

Got ideas? Great. We can’t wait to hear them. We’re after people ready to bring a new spin to the way we do things.

While we’re an international company, New Zealand is our control centre. Across our two local offices we are one cohesive, high-performing team. Being based in the beating heart of Wellington, in fabulous growing tech hub Palmerston North or working remotely - you’ll enjoy the support of a team of people who work hard and work well – every day.

Ready for an exciting challenge?

Maybe you’re used to a start-up environment and will bring all the agility and energy of that world, but what you’ll get here is the excitement of growth without uncertainty. You’ll get leaders who are seasoned experts, and a company with a solid history that’s here to stay.

So now is truly the time. Make the leap and join us for this exciting ride.
