Intern Agile Product Management
Royal IHC is looking for an Agile product management intern who can assist the product owner in the entire Agile product management process.
Royal IHC aims to play a leading role in making the maritime industry more sustainable and efficient. Insight into the performance of assets leads to better-informed, data driven decisions and improved operational results. Therefore, the Digital team within Royal IHC equips every asset with smart, integrated solutions. Customer centricity is in our DNA. Initiatives start from customer insights and throughout the entire product development process we validate with our customers.
We are a small team with a large task and passionate about all things digital. We like to work together, take a walk along the windmills in Kinderdijk and have fun together. On Mondays we always meet in the office, catch up and have lunch together.
Insights from customer validations, stakeholders and data analytics lead to new initiatives on our backlog. These backlog items need to be prioritized and prepared to be picked up by the development team. During the development process the development team needs to be guided through the backlog items through refinements, daily scrums and reviews. When the development team delivers a product increment, this needs to be tested and a release needs to be planned and prepared.
Your job as an Agile product management intern is to take an active role in all these activities. You take backlog items, refine them further with the product owner and our stakeholders and bring them to the development team. You test if increments are according to what you specified and you think about the release, how to bring them to customers and what documentation, supporting material is needed to bring it to the operation fase.
As in intern you get a lot of responsibility and freedom to take ownership in the Agile process. Also, when you see something that we can do better, you can bring it to light and execute an improvement plan. On the other hand, you get the change to learn from an experienced product owner, UX designer and experienced developers. You get the chance to work with people from different cultures, learn about Agile and product management and work with innovative digital technologies.
In order to be able to participate actively in the Agile product management process one must be an articulate team player.
To be eligible for this position you must have:
- Master’s degree in (International) Business Administration, Business Information Management, Strategic Management, I(C)T Management, Digital Business and Economics, Marine Technology or a related field of study, or equivalent experience.
- Affinity with digital technologies
- Interpersonal skills, including teamwork, facilitation and negotiation
- Analytical and technical skills
- Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English (Dutch is desirable)
This internship offers you a monthly salary of €425,- based on a full-time week.
Reimbursement of your travel costs.
Guidance and freedom to explore different topics.
During your internship, you will also have the opportunity to work on your assignments or thesis.
Flexible working hours and the possibility to work partially from home.
A great opportunity to contribute to the future of the maritime industry.
