Product Management

What we do?

Lykon is a digital health company that was founded in 2015 and is changing the healthcare system for the long term. Our vision is to empower people to take their health into their own hands.
We currently offer a wide range of DNA and blood tests. A few drops of blood or saliva are enough for us to provide customers with tailored nutritional and action recommendations so that they can achieve their health goals. With our product, we are active in innovative and exciting fields, such as personalized nutrition and personalized medicine.

What are we looking for?

As a Product Owner at Lykon you will have the opportunity to hold a strategic and tactical position guiding overall user experience and driving business goals for your area of responsibility. You will be a driving force of our digital product and transform scientific insights into lovable product user experiences. You will be responsible for contributing to Lykon’s product vision and for aligning it and company strategy and goals with the requests sent to your team.

User experience is vital to our success: you will prioritize and guide the delivery of user value within a fixed time and flexible scope environment, supported by quantitative and qualitative user insights.

You will come forth with your own ideas and also take others’ ideas into consideration, focusing on the merit and fact based decision-making approach. Your ego will be in check, but you will also be persistent and fight for your vision.

You will make part of a cross-functional team that is always looking for the most effective technologies and techniques. Challenge and feedback are part of our daily routine and are highly encouraged in the team. We like to work with interactive rounds and test our ideas - we want to be better at this and count on you to help us!
