Would you like to build applications that positively impact the health and fitness industry?

Our client is a High-Tech company that provides a service improving the everyday health and life of customers in Germany.

The role is a cornerstone in the product team, as the front end is the main digital customer interaction point to the vertically integrated product – from the physical machine to the customer mobile app.

The technology combines a physical fitness machine, modern apps, and a cloud-based backend with a host of data.

You will take complete, end-to-end ownership of all front-end projects across the entire stack. It is a fascinating role with a lot of room to learn and shape. You will grow into a team leadership role by hiring and coaching a team of A-Players.

For the product team, we are looking for a Product Owner / Product Manager-AF102 for the Software and Hardware stack at the office location in Berlin, Germany.

In this role you will:

  • Manage the roadmap and backlog for the Apps developed with the internal software team (a mix of remote and on-site engineers)
  • Work with 3rd party providers to improve/change the fitness machine design – an external manufacturer and engineers.
    • You’ll partially manage these external projects.
    • Coordinate the external suppliers, organize weekly meetings, manage the priorities, and be involved in the specifications.
  • Drive future product developments with the development team


Must Have’s:

  • At least 5-6+ years of IT Product Management experience
  • Experience with both web and mobile application development (as a PO)
  • Background in Health / Fitness industry

The Ideal Candidate:

  • Highly skilled in prioritizing stories, and features based on business impact, KPIs, and outcomes. We do not want someone that is just in love with some fancy features but always has a clear KPI mindset. What drives conversion? How do we get more referrals? What are the top 3 paint points of customers and coaches? What is the next best feature to meet our mission?
  • Very good understanding of product flows (UX flows, data flows) and a good understanding of technology and applications. Needs to have a feeling for technical complexity. Is this easy? Feasible? Difficult? What are dependencies? What are corner cases to consider? Does not need to be able to write Software him/herself, but is able to challenge developers.
  • Productivity mindset. Striving to increase the efficiency and output of the team
  • A good feeling for both technology and esthetics (but does not have to be UX expert and designer – will add such resources externally)
  • What we do currently:
    • Technical stories (backend, tech debt, architecture, refactoring) are mostly managed by the dev team itself
    • All feature-based stories are done by the product manager. This involves defining the flow, Definitions of Done, and Visual Mocks.
  • Good communication skills to talk to developers, external suppliers, businesses, and customers
  • Interest in health, and exercise – if you have some background in ergonomics or similar this would be a great plus!

Self-assessment Questions:

  • Do you have at least 5-6 years of Product Ownership / Management experience?
  • Have you worked on developing Health or Fitness applications? (as a PO with devs)
  • Have you developed mobile applications? (as a PO with devs)
  • Have you developed Hardware products? (as a PO with devs)
  • Are you based in Berlin (Germany) or would you like to relocate?
  • Are you excited about fitness/health in general?



  • Be at the tip of innovation in the fitness and health market
  • Be part of a team improving the customer’s quality of life
  • High level of freedom and responsibility
  • Personal growth and self-development
  • Young, dynamic focused team
  • Surrounded by health enthusiasts who live what they preach
  • Regular (weekly) workouts (of course!)
  • An attractive overall package

Tech-Stack – Just FYI so you know what your future colleagues work with:

  • Frontend: 
    • Customer App: React Native (albeit only a frame, inside is the responsive Web-Version in React Web): Written both in TypeScript
    • Coaching & Admin App: React Web in TypeScript
    • Training App: Electron Container. Inside two Screens in React Web in TypeScript
  • Backend:
    • Hardware Machine: Node stack in Typescript within Electron. Custom TypeScript machine driver (on top of an HTTP API) to manage sensors and motors of the physical machine
    • Cloud: 
      • GraphQL API running as Lambda function in AWS (serverless)
      • Cognito for Authentication, CloudWatch for Logs, CloudFormation for IaC, and Things for IoT registration
      • Databases: Currently PostgreSQL, Neptune, and DocumentDb – but migrating all to PostgreSQL only now to simplify the backend)

So all in all: It’s a modern TypeScript-only environment


  • Full-time long-term engagement
  • Employment if you are based in Germany
  • Visa is not sponsored at this point (can be discussed though)
