WHAT THE OPPORTUNITY IS AND WHY YOU SHOULD WORK HERE

 

We are building something special, a paradigm shift from traditional banking that needs a team of people who can move at pace. In order to do this successfully, we need integrated roadmaps across our key launch areas, Product & Technology and this needs to be closely aligned with our business to ensure a smooth GTM.   

Reporting to the Chief Product & Technology Officer, this role will work very closely within the Product Development and Engineering / IT teams and third parties across multiple geographies. We run an agile development process and product factory that sits at the very core of our business, but we need to ensure roadmap alignment to all other business launch activities - that’s where you come in.  

You love complex problems with many moving parts and are excited at the prospect of working within a fast-paced startup environment. You are a highly experienced Programme Manager, having worked in all stages of an agile software development lifecycle, yet still appreciate working in a waterfall manner with large institutions.  

Highly organised, you have a proven track record of managing multiple projects as part of a larger programme to drive the business forward. You enjoy working in a team environment and have a genuine enthusiasm for launching innovative services in the fintech ecosystem.
