What we do

Pave is building a Cashflow API that allows fintech developers and data scientists to connect their data sources and retrieve clean & unified insights into their consumers’ spending habits, bills, earnings profile, and account health.

We're abstracting the data cleaning and transformation efforts necessary to get a single view of a consumer’s finances so that fintech companies can rapidly build budgeting features, recommendations engines, risk models, and more.

We believe that by lowering the friction of extracting financial insights from the growing number of data sources, we can help accelerate the development of innovative and inclusive financial products. We’re on a mission to enable builders to reinvent and lower the cost of financial services.

Background

There are a growing number of companies helping people gain access to digital financial services, whether it’s low-interest loans, payment installment solutions, integrated insurance offerings, fee-less banking, personalized budgeting, wage advances, or investment solutions.

We believe financial services will exist for every consumer segment, especially underserved segments including female professionals, refugee communities, creators, immigrants, retirees, gig workers, and so forth. We are not original in this thought - this is already happening.

Building equitable financial services for underserved consumer segments requires expensive resources, infrastructure, and analysis into new types of datasets. However, the cost to clean, transform, and analyze these new datasets is high, and every company is forced to do the same bespoke work on the same data sources. This is significant time and cost, and impeding the mission around expanding financial inclusion.

We're 3x founders with a history of launching successful data products, and we're partnered with awesome fintech investors including Bessemer Ventures, Village Global, Better Tomorrow Ventures, 8VC, and execs from Coinbase, Chime, and Sofi.

The Role

At Pave, you will be our first product manager, responsible for managing the flow from idea to implementation. You’ll be reporting to the company’s CEO.

You will be responsible for writing product requirement documents (PRDs), transforming broad concepts that live on our product roadmap to actionable, quantifiable, and implementable specifications.

The nature of the PRDs involves requirements for new analysis, insights, and new API endpoints that we’re continuously making available to our developer and data science customers. The role requires a deep understanding of how our data quality and ETL processes work in the background, as well as experience with analytics and data science related projects.

You will work closely with our founders and engineering team during planning to ensure our goals are aligned and coordinated for the upcoming sprint.

You will serve as our team scrum master, running our daily standups, managing our ticket board, and ensuring that our engineers are unblocked and on pace.

Timing is great - it's early enough that you'll get an opportunity to be the first PM on the team and help lead a wide range of projects and see our API grow by leaps and bounds.

The Team

We’re a 10 person team of hungry, mission-driven individuals bent on leveling the playing field of financial services. We’re a small team (though not for long!) looking for someone to have an active hand in defining our company’s culture.

You’ll be successful in this role if you:

    • Have a love for writing and written documentation
    • Feel comfortable talking shop with our engineering team, are able to understand the challenges our team encounters during a sprint, and can help coordinate how to resolve blockers
    • Have worked at a startup in engineering, data science, or product management
    • Are SQL proficient
    • Are interested in the API ecosystem
    • Have worked on a scrum team or been in a scrum master role

You'll be a great fit if:

    • You’re a team player. You’re ready to wear many hats, bouncing ideas off of analysts, engineers, and data scientists as needed!
    • You’re a self-starter who is eager to launch products with our engineers
    • You’re excited to be involved in all aspects of the product development lifecycle
    • If you derive energy from speaking with customers
    • You’re scrappy! You love proactively finding and communicating problems and you’ve got a get-it-done mindset
