Product Owner 

About Drop

Drop is a fast-growing, venture-backed team of human-computer interaction specialists with a love of great food who are working with the biggest kitchen appliance brands in the world to deliver the experience that removes the friction from the whole food-making process.

Food is a core part of our social fabric, and eating well is essential for a healthy body and mind. But when busy people struggle to find the time or inspiration to cook their own meals at home, they turn to takeout, delivery or meal kits — a habit which turns eating three wholesome meals a day into an unhealthy, expensive and ultimately unsatisfying cycle.

Our mission is to empower and inspire anyone to cook delicious food by connecting the world’s recipes and appliances — all orchestrated through a magical user experience.

We started with our own smart kitchen devices that integrate with the critically acclaimed Drop Recipes app. We have since launched partnerships with Bosch, Electrolux, GE Appliances, Kenwood and LG Electronics, with many more to announce in the near future. Each appliance and recipe partner we connect brings us one step closer to being the de facto KitchenOS.

The Drop team is spread out across offices in San Francisco, California; Dublin, Ireland; and Zaragoza, Spain. 

About the role

We are looking for a Product Owner to work with our platform experience team, focusing on solutions that interface with our multi-sided KitchenOS platform. 

You will be working within a cross-functional team, finding ways to maximise the effectiveness of a multi-functional, web-based application for our platform users who are the largest appliance brands in the world. The product allows partners interact with the KitchenOS Platform through every part of their success journey, i.e. analysing top level metrics, recipe & appliance management, content localisation, user engagement through content merchandising & marketing, customer support through IoT fleet management and user management. The Product Owner is a key role in ensuring we deliver a world class experience to all of our partners - and, by extension, our users - and making Drop the defacto KitchenOS. 

We are absolutely focused on delivering maximum value for our users and our partners, so we are looking for someone with a strong bias to action, who has an excellent product sensibility, and who is excited to work with us on the cutting edge of IOT and a best in class user experience.
