Technical Product Owner (m/f/d)

Festanstellung, Vollzeit · Berlin

Our challenge
Every day, millions of people use spreadsheets for business critical processes. However, running these spreadsheet processes is painful. Sharing and collecting spreadsheet data is done manually, too many emails are sent back and forth, keeping track of all changes and file versions is cumbersome and leads to loss of control and intransparency.
Our solution
In short, we are building GitHub for Spreadsheets.

Layer is a cutting-edge web platform which fosters collaboration and increases productivity with the potential to reach millions of users worldwide. By introducing a productivity layer on top of Excel and Google Sheets, we are on a global mission to change how any team in any company works with spreadsheets.
