Why Vacasa

We started with just one home and an idea: to bring homeowners and renters together with smart technology and caring local teams. Today, we're the largest full-service vacation rental company in North America thanks to the people who give us their best every day. You'll fit right in here if you're curious, entrepreneurial, and thrive in a rapid-growth environment.

Why Product at Vacasa

Our motto is to move fast and dream big. Vacasa is well-resourced and we're going places. Our culture is laid-back but our turnarounds are tight, so we switch gears quickly. You'll innovate and iterate, and your work will make an impact.

What we're looking for

As a Technical Product Owner at Vacasa, you will take ownership of products that are core to our business and shared across our lines of business. You'll apply your experience to build services and frameworks that accelerate our overall product development delivery. In addition to working with the engineers on your delivery team, you'll interact with your customers: all of our engineering teams.

You have a technical background, are capable of writing code (in an emergency), and understand how software development teams work, and how engineers think. You are the kind of person who enjoys thorny problems, wants to take charge to fix them, and you have the ability to understand and communicate complex technical and business systems to a wide audience.

What you'll do

  • Determine and prioritize features for our shared services

  • Create data models, write API specifications, and specify non-functional requirements for greenfield services that are used by all parts of the business

  • Work directly with your dedicated engineering team to drive tactical execution and ensure that our products exceed standards of quality

  • Accurately assess timelines and delivery schedules, and clearly communicate opportunities and risks to management

  • Create and maintain relationships with key partners and internal teams

  • Own product performance by setting success metrics and monitoring them to inform the future product roadmap

  • Define, manage, and evolve product strategy, roadmap, and vision

  • Act as a product evangelist to build awareness and understanding

Skills you'll need

  • Experience working as a product manager, business systems analyst, software architect, or engineer

  • The standard set of PM skills: understanding markets, competition, and user problems in depth to articulate why and how we should build

  • Service-oriented approach to product management

  • Experience with software and system architecture, preferably in the cloud (AWS)

  • Experience with SQL and/or data modeling

  • BS degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or equivalent

  • Experience with Jira in an Agile development environment is a plus!

What you'll get

  • Health/dental/vision insurance100% coverage option

  • 401K retirement savings plan with up to a 6% company match

  • Vacation time

  • Paid sick leave and holidays

  • Career advancement opportunities

  • Employee discounts

  • All the equipment you'll need to be successful

  • Great colleagues and culture
