Product Owner

at Zava in London

(₤70000 - ₤80000 per year)

At Zava we believe in giving people the power and confidence to treat the conditions society judges most. Every day we treat thousands of people across Europe who feel let down by the ‘old’ way of doing healthcare - phone calls, paper prescriptions, bureaucracy, waiting and worrying.

We’ve built an online medical platform that connects patients with doctors, pharmacies and test laboratories - providing safe, efficient and non-judgemental care to over 1,5 million patients in 6 countries and counting.

But this is just the beginning: we’re looking for a Product Owner who will ultimately be responsible for delivering treatments, tests and results to patients quickly, conveniently and efficiently.

They will own and be responsible for a significant part of our core platform: prescription generation, storage and distribution across; delivery integrations; and our remote laboratory testing. In effect, all the service delivery that occurs after a doctor has decided what patients need. And all of this across 6 countries (and counting).

In summary, the Product Owner (Delivery) will be critically important for delivering a ‘Wow’ healthcare experience to patients, and contributing to our hugely ambitious scaling plans.


Although we believe strongly in the power of self-organising agile teams, you’ll be a natural leader to a team of developers and UX professionals.
You’ll foster a deep understanding of the company to develop the product vision, strategy and road-map so that we make patients happy and meet our ambitious growth objectives
You’ll work collaboratively with subject matter experts (doctors, researchers, data scientists and others!), leveraging their expertise to build better product
You’ll combine quantitative (the ‘what’) and qualitative (the ‘why’) data to understand how our products - and any experiments you run - are performing. You’ll combine data, your knowledge of the company, stakeholder insights, sound judgement and a hypothesis-led approach to prioritise the product increments that help our customers - and the business - succeed.
And you’ll play a leading role in baking innovation into our platform
As a result in a short space of time you can expect your, and your team’s, work to make a difference to millions of patients across the world.
As we are a fast growing startup with big plans to extend and adapt our platform, accountabilities may change over time. Changes will be made after consultation with the job holder.


We're open to lots of different backgrounds but you probably need to have experience of Agile in more than one organisation and experience building product end to end (concept, definition, build, launch, celebrate!, measure, tweak).

Core scrum Product Owner skills are important. A solid understanding of data, a positive outlook, confidence, energy and the ability to build rapport are essential.


From doctors and developers, marketers and engineers, through to administrators and customer service specialists, at Zava we’re looking to grow our community of passionate professionals.

In return, we can offer you a range of unique benefits designed to help you learn, develop and fulfil your potential.

You’ll work with some of the smartest minds in the industry, and if you have a bright idea, we’ll all work with you to make it happen.

We also offer you access to private healthcare, childcare vouchers and a competitive salary, with share options in Zava and company-wide bonuses.

And you’ll get to work in a fun, collaborative environment, with a casual dress code, flexible working, and an open plan office set in a hub for culture and entertainment.

Oh, and did we mention, there’s free fruit and coffee on tap?

If you’re bright, entrepreneurial and want to make a real difference to the world’s health, we’d love to hear from you.
