Please join us for lots  of networking, cool ideas and sparkling speakers.
On November 7th, Playtech will host TechSisters community's next networking event "Product Owner ABC" in its Tallinn office. 

This time, Product Owners' basics will be in focus. How to become a product owner, what are the challenges and joys and much more will be under discussion with field experts.

This time we have four amazing women on stage:

*Rita Hallimäe, Product Manager at Playtech

15 years ago, as a happy coincidence, Rita found herself studying IT at the university. Towards the end of her Bachelor’s, she applied for a QA Engineer position at Playtech. She got the job, not in the unit she had applied to, but in IMS – the best department at Playtech that is designing the gaming industry’s most powerful player management system. Ten years and four positions later, Rita is a Product Manager in the same company, same unit and even in the same team, working with the most professional, international, supportive and diverse team she can wish for.

* Sigrid Pachel, Product Owner at Playtech

After Sigrid completed her Master’s in Estonian Language, she felt a relief that she never has to study again. For a while, she was eager to start her career as a proofreader and editor, but a heart-to-heart conversation with a close friend made her rethink if that is all she wants her career to be. This led Sigrid to one of the scariest decisions of her life – to taking up studies in IT systems development. Fast-forward two years, and this has proved to be one of the best decisions she has ever made – Sigrid got an internship in Playtech that turned into a full-time job, which last summer led to a promotion for the role of a Product Owner. So, Sigrid is a real life inspiration to everyone considering a change in their career path

The guest speakers:
* Karin Sarv, Product Manager at Mooncascade
* Inge Prangel, Product Owner at Nortal

It's a great chance to listen to the experienced ones, ask the questions you've always wondered about and of course, get new connections! 
Of course, there will be snacks, drinks and office tour powered by the host, Playtech Estonia.

Pre-registration is required in Eventbrite.
