Who You Are:
At Ocrolus our human-in-the-loop AI technology is transforming the way fintech companies manage document workflows.  We are looking for a hands-on, experienced Product Management professional who can oversee this unique internal workflow end-to-end. You therefore will have proven industry experience in automating business processes through the elegant combined use of human input and machine learning. 
 
As VP of Product for Automation and Artificial Intelligence, you will be responsible for setting the strategy, the roadmap, and executing on plans to automate financial services document processing.  You will work closely with our machine learning and data science teams to coordinate the integration of machine learning models into our workflows.

The ideal candidate has thorough experience and technical understanding in leading the implementation of machine learning in production environments.  You have worked in environments where coordinating human input is critical in achieving the desired level of end-to-end accuracy while controlling for some of the typical downsides of ML like bias and model drift.
