A day in the life of a Jr Product Owner 

You arrive at the office with a big smile and the cycle sweats. Last week you attended a UX/Product meetup and looking to facilitate new Customer Discovery techniques to help the team. You were inspired and today is the day you’re setting up, a quick story mapping session to help unblock the team on a new feature you’ve been working on.

During the morning standup with ZIVVER Product leadership, you discuss things like improving onboarding, and performance of security scanning for attachments listing of all applications and much more.

Around 11:30 a.m. it’s time to host the weekly collaboration with Customer Success working on the latest customer feedback regarding a new feature you just launched.

After enjoying a free lunch at the Humming Bar you dig into next a perplexing feature which can now be released with a new version of the Microsoft API. You prepare the necessary user stories so on Friday decisions are made to hand over to development, making sure ZIVVER maintains its speed and flexibility.

The day is drawing to an end. You catch up with the Development team on a feature you say another plugin implement and inquiring how much effort you think that would be. You’re about to close your laptop when Olivier drops in, asking if you’re up for a beer at the Humming Bar. It’s been quite a day, so that seems like an awesome plan!
