Key responsibilities: 


In product, we gather business and systems opportunities, pain points and use cases from internal and external clients, translate these requirements into technical specifications and UI designs, prioritise and oversee projects from design to release, design and test MVPs and finally manage the launch and subsequent customer evaluation of completed features. This role is cross-functional – Product Managers will work closely with Engineering, Operations, Sales, Marketing, Finance, Executive teams and external clients / vendors.

About FINBOURNE


FINBOURNE Technology was founded in 2016 with the mission to reduce the cost of investing and increase transparency for everyone.


Seven of us started on this journey and we have now grown to more than 70 people. Our intention is to change the way the world of financial services operates with a series of products, the first of which is LUSID - our open, cloud-based investment data platform. LUSID is for everyone in the asset management industry from start-up fund managers to global investment institutions and combines best-practice from the B2C technology world and own our domain expertise to challenge established orthodoxy on how a platform should operate, what it should provide a solution for, and how you should access it.


 Our solution is open, API first and developer friendly – a true first for the asset management industry.  You can see what our team is busy building – we’ve published APIs for all functions publicly on Github., and released Software Development Kits for developers in five languages (C#, Java, Javascript, Python, Angular).


LUSID is just the start; we are adding a data virtualisation product and looking into spinning out our entitlements, research and event sourcing processes. To help us, we’re looking for talented and creative problem solvers to join our team. We think it’s a pretty exciting place to be right now and we’re always looking for passionate, innovative people to join us on our journey.
