What this role looks like

Being a Product Designer & Owner at Virtuagym, you will continuously help improve Virtuagym's products and services.

Together with the Product Manager and engineers, you will play a major role in ensuring our customers love the solutions you have built with your team.

As such, you love working with a team to create solutions that solve real problems and which users love to work with. You understand how important a strong user experience is for any product that gets used on a daily basis.

During this process you will work directly with your development team, to make sure they understand exactly what to build and the end result works as amazing in practice as you have envisioned it. You really own the end solution, meaning you and your team are also responsible for resolving issues after release.

  • Shape, scope, and refine the projects with your team;

  • Track the development progress and resolve potential blockers;
