The Missguided Product Owners & Analysts Team sits at the centre of everything we do as an IT department for the wider business. The team is a collaborative, flat-structured collection of like-minded professionals who work with everyone across the business (from junior developers up to board members) to facilitate an initial idea through to release into Production. Knowledge-sharing and ideas-exchange is our core principal, allowing each team member to learn from each other, which in turn provides us with a “whole world” view of Missguided and its ambitions.
