    You will be given a large degree of freedom to make a measured impact. You prioritize ruthlessly and support superior product execution in all its facets.

    In addition, you meet or exceed your goals while delivering consistently and predictably. We have a solid foundation (both platform and revenue), but we aren’t resting on our laurels.

    Your primary focus is the consumer experience. You will be building tools and services that consumers need and exceed their expectations.

    By doing this, you add more value throughout the whole journey of searching, buying, moving, owning and selling a house, so that we can take the stress out of all those moments in buyers’ and sellers’ journeys.

    You will be supported by a research division, data team and core services team.

    Your profile

    You are a Product Owner with preferably an analytical or technical background. You’ve worked on marketplaces, SaaS platform or platforms.

    Maybe you worked at a bigger technology company, where voices aren’t heard. Or you worked at a smaller company reliant on venture funding.

    Wherever you came from, we believe funda fits perfectly in between. We’re both profitable and innovative.

    And you meet the following technical requirements :

  • You have 3-5 years of work experience as a product owner at a marketplace, SaaS platform or ad tech company.

  • You are up-to-date with technology trends and the opportunities they present
  • You have the ability to thrive in a variable and demanding environment.
  • Also :

  • Fluent in Dutch and English
  • You are a craftsperson. You take pride in the simple things. Real estate marketplaces are amongst the maturest online platforms, so how do you refine their basic elements to ensure a perfect user experience?
  • You innovate in a calculated manner. You know that 1% improvement everyday makes you 37x better in a year.
  • You’re comfortable with ambiguity.
  • You’re a strong communicator and enjoy hearing others’ points of view objectively and working with those people to reach alignment.
  • You are goal-oriented. You’re passionate about making incremental and measured changes.
