This is a major social responsibility; our aim is to continue to inspire customers to eat healthily, easily, enjoyably and affordably.

Welcome to the omnichannel food retailer. 


Making a difference to the customer as Cloud & Infrastructure Product Owner 

As a Cloud & Infrastructure product owner you are responsible for building, developing and optimizing the cloud infrastructure that we use for all customer-oriented digital communication.

Making optimum use of our Kubernetes platform helps product teams to get their software into production as quickly as possible reliably, securely, efficiently and scalably. You determine the roadmap and backlog in consultation with the team, Product Owner SRE, Architects and product teams. Based on our Objectives and Key Results (OKRs) you determine the priority and monitor the progress made with the backlog.

  • formulating a vision from the perspective of AH Tech strategy, technology and the wishes of product teams that helps us to speed up our Time to Market.

  • bringing the vision and the roadmaps to fruition. You deliver and manage successful products, systems and/or processes.
  • excellently planning, prioritizing and organizing the product development and product functions of the end-product. You manage the overall quality of the product.
  • properly representing the interests of your stakeholders and establishing an intensive collaboration between your team and stakeholders.
