Please review the following job description:

This role is a Product Owner/Business Analyst in the Scaled Agile Framework who partners with product managers to balance business, technology and design priorities to deliver brand-defining product and service experiences. The position requires the ability to understand strategic impacts but concentrates on the day-to-day details in order to ensure tactical execution. NOTE: In some Agile teams, there may be Product Owners from both the Business and the Tech side. In that case, the role will remain the same and there is joint accountability for the Agile team’s results. In rare instances, where the business cannot provide a PO, a Tech PO/BSA could step in to fulfill the responsibilities.

The Product Owner is responsible for executing the strategy for their area of responsibility based on client and company needs, which can include client experience, back office processes or systemic processes outside the client journey. They are a key resource in backlog management for the teams. The Product Owner works hand-in-hand with Product Managers and other stakeholders/subject matter experts (SMEs) to translate the product vision into epics and features that can be actioned by the delivery teams. The work will span the entire delivery process; from assisting with identification of areas for improvement, to more detailed work in authoring user stories, working closely with technical leads/scrum teams to ensure the solution effectively addresses experience priorities while maintaining technical integrity, and overseeing tactical execution of efforts.

Taking a holistic perspective, this position is responsible for delivering the experience across all related pieces within their assigned area of responsibility.
