I'm currently going through the process of asking for a job title change to more accurately reflect what I do and I'm facing pushback from my superiors because they see the title change as a "promotion". I want to show my superiors the results of this post as more 'evidence' that my responsibilities are mis-titled by my current job title Based on the following job description, what would you guess is my job title?

Edit:
- TC $72,500
- YOE 6 months in this field. 10 years of work experience
- Education: master's degree in the field that our products are sold in.


- Develop a deep understanding of data collection products, customers, underlying data sets and future product opportunities.
- Collaborate cross-functionally to create a best-in-class user experience and solution.
- Closely work with the product management team to understand the product vision, strategic product direction, and roadmap.
- Monitor customer feedback channels and conduct market research to gather information from various sources.
- Meet with customers and internal stakeholders to understand the business objectives and rationale behind specific customer requests.
- Specify and document software requirements in story format (as in Agile methodology) with proper acceptance criteria that meet the business requirements.
- Resolve questions and provide clarifications raised by the engineering team during the development process.
- Review and help with test plans to ensure that developed solutions will meet defined requirements.
- Assist product management with training and the demonstration of new product features.
- Maintain a ranked backlog of new features, expressed in terms of epics and user stories, while prioritizing the needs of the product stakeholders.
- Actively participate in regular activities of a Scrum team, including inspection and acceptance/rejection of completed work during each Sprint.

  • Product owner does sound like a promotion.

    • Everything you listed are inputs a product owner would use to guide decisions.

      You say "understand" product vision, strategy, roadmap and not define it, as a product owner would do.

  • You should do a multiple choice question and give us two choices, the title you have and the title you want

  • Essential product owner duties would have additional responsibilities such as roadmap ownership and P&L. Just those two items can be a full time job. If you want to take them on, they should give you the chance.
    How big is the product?
    Is there an existing owner already? Is it your boss?

    Seems kind of project manager-y since no roadmap work. Not product owner though.
