Product Owner/ Project Manager

Full-time / Part-time · Utrecht

We’re looking for a PRODUCT OWNER / PROJECT MANAGER who is adept at running complex digital projects. Can you motivate and guide our team to deliver stunning data design experiences?

Apply and let us know what you’ll bring to our team. 


CLEVER°FRANKE is an enthusiastic, multi-disciplinary team of 35 + people with 11 different nationalities from across the world and we use English as a primary language to communicate and collaborate. We are interaction designers, visual designers, developers, project managers, data analysts and others. All with a passion for what we do. We are curious about the world around us, and apply the same curiosity to our work and projects.

We have been steadily growing and we are looking for a PRODUCT OWNER / PROJECT MANAGER to help manage our increasing number of projects. As well as the fundamental project management tasks of planning, budgeting you will also focus on resourcing, to excel in this role.

You run complex projects, including cross-platform digital solutions and interactive installations, so you are able to grasp concepts quickly and help the project team 

accelerate to make these a reality. Depending on the type of project and team, you are able to take on a project manager or product owner role. You guide and work closely together with the design/development team to meet the objectives of each phase/sprint, identify areas of improvement and manage design and backlog items. You are self-aware, willing to continuously improve your skills, always ensuring you get everyone onboard and motivating people while taking project constraints into account. You have a hands-on mentality and you don't mind taking care of the project administration and resource planning that comes with the projects. You are solution focused, understanding the bigger picture, zooming into the details when necessary, and comfortable with not knowing everything up-front, asking questions to avoid assumptions. You are able to connect and build bridges between different disciplines and stakeholders where needed. You are client-oriented and know how to maintain a good relationship by managing expectations and the interests of the client while safeguarding our culture and quality standards. 


You’re welcome at CLEVER°FRANKE regardless of your appearance, identity or background. It’s not a place you have to 'fit in' but somewhere everyone can feel themselves and be their best to do their best.

Studies suggest that women, and others, tend to hesitate to apply for a job if their CV isn’t a perfect fit. Here, we look for talent and potential — not just formal experience and expertise. So if you like the role and think you could be awesome at it, go ahead and apply.
