  • Identify emerging payments and risk capabilities (e.g via banks, vendors, partners), build business cases, and define product vision and strategy
  • Evolve shared user experience components across our customer-facing product and internal tools
  • Articulate and design customer experiences that make our users (including internal customers) smile
  • Understand customer pain points, come up with solutions, and then prototype, iterate, and launch frequently

Here’s what we’re looking for:

  • 10+ years of hands-on product management experience, with 5+ years managing growing product teams
  • Bring grit, a willingness to roll up your sleeves, and be a hands-on help to your team
  • Have a proven track record of building platform products in rapidly scaling companies
  • Deep domain experience in payments and risk 
  • Pay great attention to detail. Pixel perfect isn’t an ideal, it is a requirement
  • Be entrepreneurial, driven, passionate about our mission, and have deep empathy for our customers

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilities1. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.

If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.

How do I know if I have a disability?

You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
