The D. E. Shaw group seeks a product manager to join its Financial Operations Technology team to assist with the development and implementation of systems and processes. This team manages the technology that streamlines finance and operations functions, including Fund Accounting, Management Company Accounting, Accounts Payable, Management Reporting, Tax, and Payroll. The role offers the opportunity to be part of an inclusive, dynamic, and engaging working environment.

You’ll work closely with business users, software developers, and quality engineers to conceptualize and develop solutions that improve current processes and systems. You’ll be responsible for understanding business needs, specifying technical requirements, prioritizing product roadmaps, and supporting existing applications. Ample opportunities will be provided to partner closely with global leaders on our information technology and finance and operations teams.

• Candidates should have a bachelor’s degree or higher and three to five years of relevant work experience.
• The drive to be a self-starter, a willingness to dive into details, and the ability manage projects to completion are critical for this role.
• Applicants with a knack for solving open-ended problems and seeing how small details interrelate to impact the bigger picture (i.e., systems thinking) will excel in this role.
• Excellent written and verbal communication skills, an aptitude for translating the needs of non-technical systems users into technical requirements, and the judgment to exercise a high level of discretion with confidential information are also essential.
• Experience designing and implementing payroll or compensation systems is a significant plus.
