Exciting opportunity to drive Product in the fast-growth Cryptocurrency space.

Our client, a leading player in the emerging Crypto-currency space, is seeking to hire a Product Lead to join their NY HQ.


The successful candidate will have 10+ years' hands-on experience in software product design, development and management, specifically as it relates to financial markets and trading. This is a senior position, and as such, the Product Lead will be responsible for owning the firm's trading platform, defining the product roadmap and helming the strategy. 


The ability to operate effectively in a constantly evolving, fast-growth and innovative environment will be key to success, as is the ability to work cross-functionally with a diverse group of professionals across the firm's Compliance & Legal, Operations, Sales, Technology and Trading functions.     


A background in computer science and engineering while strongly preferred, is not a key requirement. That said, intensive collaboration with the firm's design and engineering teams is a key feature of this role, and a strong technical bias will be helpful. High speed candidates with a track record of delivering product innovation and experience in developing new features are of particular interest.   


Outstanding communication skills, and presentation ability - including the ability to communicate effectively to a broad audience - are also key requirements.  


Knowledge of Equities or FX trading, experience working on a trading desk, or in support of a trading desk from a product or engineering perspective is required. Cryptocurrency exposure a plus!
