Be part of our growth and become our new Product Owner Platform

Your future ecosystem
Our Product Development department exists of over 120 colleagues, divided into more than 20 teams that go by self-thought-up names like “Mavericks”, “Rangers” and “High Five”. These self-managing teams work in an Agile way and usually exist of Back-end Developers, Front-end Developers and a Tester. In our app teams, we work on our new Priva solutions for both buildings and horticulture. Next to our app teams, we have three platform teams that build the back-end components that are used by our app teams. This platform is used to fulfill our purpose of becoming a data-driven organization.

Between Rotterdam and The Hague, you find the greenhouse capital of the world: “Het Westland”, where our campus is located in De Lier. In these 100 square kilometers, Priva was founded in the fifties and is still a family business.


Priva started as a hardware company and transformed into an innovative software company that grew to become the global market leader in horticulture and building automation. Today we are a high-tech company that develops hardware, software and digital services in the field of climate control, energy-saving and optimal reuse of water. We do this for horticulture, indoor and city farming, as well as utility buildings such as offices, retail, hotels and hospitals.

Our next step is to conquer the digital domain and become a digital service provider, selling subscriptions to "climate as a service".

We are proud to be working with over 600 colleagues, in 16 international branch offices divided over 12 countries together with over 400 international installation partners to deliver our sustainable solutions and services in more than 100 countries.


How you add value
As our Product Owner Platform, you will be responsible for delivering the fundament of our digital services. The main objective of this Product Owner is to make data qualitative, reliable and accessible, specifically historical and real-time data. You will be Product Owner of two platform teams. These teams build the infrastructure that transfers all the data coming from greenhouses and buildings into our cloud and local environments and ensures easy access for internal and external customers.

You will work closely with other Product Owners and stakeholders to identify needs, gather requirements and translate those into work items. You manage the team’s backlog and provide them with clear goals. You keep track of all the functional trends in the field and consciously decide which trends to follow and which trends to disregard.


Priva’s customers rely on the data provided by the infrastructure that is built by your teams. By doing so, you directly add value to our end customers.
