Furthermore, there will be opportunities to follow your own journey within Borealis and discover different roles in the future.

As a Product Owner your key activities are to

  • assure that our products can be produced within established specifications and fulfil customers' needs and legal requirements. You are the owner of internal and external product specifications and support creation of customer related product and delivery agreements
  • perform product quality reviews and drive product related claim investigations in order to define corrective actions and settle claims technically.
  • lead relevant product quality/consistency improvement initiatives and provide input to innovation projects, e.g. in topics related to problem solving, quality improvements, plant capability, application development and cost saving solutions.
