Tutuka is looking for a passionate Product Manager with experience in the payments industry to help Tutuka in its next stage of growth and global expansion.
Product Managers at Tutuka are responsible for a wide range of responsibilities central to developing Tutuka’s core features. You will help guide the product, operational, strategic, commercial, and overall proposition of your ‘owned’ product area.
Your focus will be on formalizing projects and guiding the Development team on implementation. In addition, you’ll also concentrate efforts on the other side of the project value-chain: working with Account Management, Sales, Marketing, and Support to communicate about your product. As such, the ideal candidate thrives on a multifaceted role across the entire lifecycle of a product, wearing many hats to see Tutuka’s goals through conception, implementation, and launch.
Experience in the payments industry is a requirement for this role.
What you get to do:
Evolving our product offering. Craft our product strategy and execution to make sure we are delivering payment products that are simple, fast, and reliable. Communicate a vision for the team looking out 3-12 months and build a roadmap to match that vision.
Managing delivery. Work in a small, autonomous, cross-functional team alongside new business, design, engineering, UX research, and data to decide what we build next and execute on that decision.
Customer Interaction. Communicate with our customers to more deeply understand the problems that we can address for them.
Stakeholder Management. Develop a sufficient understanding of technical context to help make better, faster decisions, and work closely with engineers on solutions.
Research. Dig deep on data to understand trends and develop a better picture of the business, the product, or our customers.
KPI Reporting. Measure and report on the results of your work (creating dashboards, writing SQL queries, etc.).
What it takes to succeed:
- Experience in payments is crucial for succeeding in this role
- 5+ years of experience as a product manager, preferably in a start-up environment, with a minimum of 5 years working in the software industry
- Champion for collaborative, iterative product discovery, and embracing your role as a member of a cross-disciplinary team
- You have exposure to lightweight product development methods such as user story mapping or rapid prototyping
- Curiosity about new technology and exhibit a strong desire to learn
- A degree of technical fluency that allows you to communicate with and understand your target audience (developers)
- You love the work of identifying and deeply understanding customer problems
- Exhibiting user empathy and seek their input at all stages of the product life cycle
- Experience with micro-service architecture and web application/services development
- Experience building and scaling a platform, ideally fintech, traditional financial services or cryptocurrencies
- Strong knowledge of SQL and NoSQL databases
