  • Full time
  • J00124212

As Technical Product Owner you will work on the IDAMS (Identity and Access Management) and Equip (B2B Reporting) platforms which are part of the UK Web and Internal Services Tribe.  The applications are Cloud-hosted; IDAMS ensures clients can access our systems safely and securely, whilst Equip is an extensible and feature rich online reporting portal.  Both will continue to evolve to ensure we meet our clients needs as our technology transformation journey continues into 2022.

Working as part of an Agile delivery team, a key part of this role will be to support the migration of our clients from legacy applications onto the new platforms, in addition to providing enhancements to the products based on client feedback and requests.  Post migration, further product development is being planned which will start later in 2021/2022.  This will give you a great opportunity to get fully immersed in the existing products, client set-up and Equifax as a whole prior to this being started in earnest.
