That’s why Curve puts your finances simply at your fingertips, so you can make smart choices on how to spend, send, see and save your money. We help you control your financial life, so you can go out and live the life you want to live.

 

The Role:

We’re developing a ground-breaking product with our customers at the core. Our user base is growing rapidly and we have exceptional metrics. We have funding from the leading names in tech investment, and a visionary leadership team who wants everyone who joins this remarkable adventure, to have the autonomy to masterfully develop their expertise. As a Product Manager at Curve, you will have the opportunity to be the driver at all stages of the process from feature inception through to optimisation.

You will own a KPI, manage your own product backlog and lead one of our multidisciplinary product teams, containing mobile and back-end engineers, QAs, designers, data scientists and other stakeholders from various groups in the company, such as Operations, Cx, Marketing etc.

 

Day to day duties:

  • Work closely with the team to research and validate your assumptions with our users in mind, running experiments and analysing the results.
  • Be actively involved in stand-ups, making sure that delivery remains viable while providing the best experience for our customers.
  • Communicate constantly and deliver the product vision within your team and across the company
  • Gather requirements, determine the design work, write and prioritise user-stories, and manage your team as a startup within a startup.
  • Develop and execute our go-to-market launch plans for new features.
  • Identify market opportunities and contribute to the product vision and business strategy.
  • Meet frequently with marketing, data, engineering and other Curve's stakeholders to both capture requirements and communicate progress of new Product releases.
  • Gathering post-launch client feedback and quickly capture learnings to adapt the product.
  • Invest in systems, and processes alongside your team members to create world-class best practices.

 

This role is for you if you:

  • Have 5+ years of product management experience, having managed at least one entire product development cycle from concept to launch.
  • Always put the customer first, seeking to validate your assumptions against real customer feedback and data.
  • Have proven track record leading with complex strategic and operational initiatives, working through technical, operational, legal/policy and business issues
  • Have a great eye for understanding and tracking data, using your analytical skills to support the evolution of Curve's product roadmap.
  • Have entrepreneurial DNA: flexible to changes, eager to learn, proactive to act, resilient to failure, persistent in making an impact.
  • Are bold, tenacious, and not afraid to challenge the status quo, always supported by facts, data and empirical research.
  • Are a great communicator, an engaging storyteller that brings everyone together towards a shared vision.
  • Experience within the FinTech and/or Financial Services industry is a plus (but not a must)
