Wealthsimple's products are powered by a suite of proprietary technology known as our Platform. As the Senior Platform PM you will develop and lead the product strategy across multiple Platform Engineering teams, defining the vision, the roadmap and crisp business requirements. In addition, you will work across functions (e.g. compliance, design, operations) consolidating input and translating it into technical requirements for engineers. We are at an exciting stage transitioning from a monolithic implementation to a constellation of micro-services and readying our platform to support external partners alongside Wealthsimple's businesses, making this an ideal to step in and make your mark.
In this role, you will:
- Own and evangelize the platform vision and its evolution for your domain, ensuring that it aligns with the overall product and company vision
- Lead the planning, development and launch of new products and features, translating business requirements into technical requirements
- Collaborate closely with engineering, operations, design, finance, compliance and other teams at Wealthsimple throughout the product lifecycle
- Coordinate with external partners, including regulators, to define and deliver compliant solutions and complex integrations with 3rd party systems
- Collect, analyze and use quantitive and qualitative data and reasoning to assess the impact of what you ship, and inform what we do next
We're looking for someone who:
- Has a demonstrated ability owning and driving results in an innovative and fast paced environment
- Is scrappy and willing to do whatever it takes to ship. That means wearing many different hats — copywriter, researcher, financial analyst — whatever it takes to get the job done
- Quickly grasps complex concepts and distills them down to something simple and easy to understand. The financial industry is already way too complicated — let's make it simpler
- Is adept at synthesizing actionable problems, insights, and requirements from raw, unstructured qualitative and quantitative data. You bring order to chaos.
- Is exceptionally strong in both quantitative and qualitative analysis, and demonstrate superior communication skills to constituents across the business
- Is naturally curious and inquisitive and doesn't readily accept the status quo. You ask “why?” a lot. Like, a lot.
- Has a demonstrated ability to conceptualize, manage and prioritize across multiple competing priorities
- Has a proven ability to navigate complex unstructured cross-functional environment
- Possesses strong, persuasive verbal and written communication skills
- Coaches, supports and mentors individuals they work with, leaving them stronger after having worked together
- 7+ years in a technical and/or platform product role
