Rivet Overview

Rivet is building the strategic toolkit for capital productivity. Finance is a critical part of every enterprise. It sits at the center of almost all decisions and data flows and is charged with identifying the levers to improve business performance, and leading and validating capital allocation decisions. CFOs act as consiglieres to Boards and executive teams and wield a level of influence and autonomy in organizations that is only rivaled by the CEO. Despite this, most finance teams can only access software and services that were designed to solve problems from decades ago. Rivet is changing this.

Our mission is to ensure the most productive use of capital by unleashing finance and giving them unparalleled predictive capabilities and market access. We will shift finance from reactive decision-making to predictive and prescriptive reasoning — from the “what” to the “why”, the “so-what”, and the “what-if?” — and bring the leading edge of machine learning to finance.

The Rivet team is led by Nikhil Bharadwaj, formerly the Chief Operating Officer of Bloomberg L.P's Data organization, and is backed by leading early-stage investors. We are incredibly optimistic about our vision for finance, but equally aware that we have to figure out many details to bring it to life. We care deeply about the problem and get unreasonably excited about the turpentine of finance. We lead with the underdog mentality––we’re ambitious and relentless, but we don’t think we’re individually exceptional. This keeps us on our toes, so we’re continually learning from our customers and challenging and growing with each other. 

We’re experienced builders and we’re bringing together engineers, data scientists, product and design taste-makers, financiers, and others from a variety of backgrounds to experiment with new ideas and rethink old assumptions to create a new world for our customers. Come build with us!

About the role

As the founding product manager at Rivet, you’ll have the opportunity to define and establish our foundational product and customer practices, drive the product roadmap, and be a leader on a team that will grow quickly as we scale. You’ll be the product voice on Rivet’s leadership team and contribute meaningfully to many other areas of the business and you will shape our culture, values, and ways of working in foundational ways.

What will you be doing in the role?

You’ll be setting product strategy, leading our designers and engineers through product sprints, and obsessing about everything that will help our customers and prospects. You will drive product design and prioritization decisions, user and market research, and release cadences to increase customer value at a high-velocity. You’ll be responsible for defining the product roadmap and working closely with our customers and prospects on all things big and small to ensure they’re getting an outstanding experience. You’ll also work closely with the CEO and senior engineering leaders to set long-term product strategy, define our go-to-market motions, and build and recruit GTM and engineering teams.
