My client - an extremely successful and fast growing fintech - is seeking to make two hires in their product development team. These roles play a lead role in setting and delivering their product roadmap over the next few years, and report directly in to the head of product development.
The company has experienced super fast growth. Over the last three years, the business has grown from 50 people to 300, and outgrown two offices. They have ambitions to float in the next 3 - 4 years, which means there's stacks of opportunity for accelerated career progression.
This role takes end-to-end ownership for specific initiatives to deliver on the commercial, strategic and regulatory agendas through a close working relationship with the change functions and effective stakeholder management across the wider business. You'll work with external partners and internal teams to ensure business change goals are understood and wrapped in appropriate governance; subsequently contribute to high quality delivery on time and within budgets.
In particular, you will take a lead on anticipating the opportunities that will become available as PSD2 kicks in - and you'll be tasked with developing a strategy and product roadmap that takes maximum advantage of the available opportunities.
The successful candidate will be able to demonstrate transferable business experience, ideally in a debt, or other financial services product. Due to engagement with multiple senior-level stakeholders, it will be crucial that you can demonstrate your previous experience influencing and persuading at the top level.
For the right person, this represents a really outstanding opportunity to play a major part in one of the most impactful teams in the business. With a massive product roadmap on the horizon, there'll be some really interesting challenges where you can make a significant impact. This, combined with the businesses growth and ambitions, undoubtedly makes this one of the best opportunities in the market.
