📝 Description

This is a super opportunity to help build the Wise product for our customers in India!

Your mission:

Wise has already pioneered new ways for people to transfer money across borders and currencies. Our customers can also manage their hard-earned money with the world’s first platform to offer true multi-currency banking.  Every month, we move millions in South Asia for our customers. Your mission is to make sending, spending, and receiving money in the country convenient, instant, and close to free – as well as finding ways to reach the potential customers we’re not yet helping.

Here’s how you’ll be contributing:

  • You’ll take ownership of Wise products in South Asia. Primarily focusing on launching Wise and growing in the Indian subcontinent
  • Your primary job will be to deeply understand customer needs, translate this to solutions, and then work with the wider product team to execute the solutions.
  • However, the scope of a regional expansion PM is broad and you’ll own the product end to end. For example, you’ll need to actively control how your products influence operational workload, understand the regulatory environment they operate in, control for financial crime risks, and so on
  • You won’t be limited to this scope – if the biggest opportunities you see are outside your day-to-day scope, you’re empowered to focus the team on these opportunities
  • To achieve this our mission requires a team, and one of the key aspects of the job will be to align the wider team on what we need to build in South Asia. You’ll work closely with the developers on your team, but also with our commercial banking team to build partner relationships, various operational teams, our finance team, our compliance and risk teams, and others. 

This role will give you the opportunity to:

  • Directly contribute to our mission to make money without borders the new normal – you will need to figure out how we can get to our mission of 100% transfers being instant faster
  • Build world-class products: The role is a unique opportunity to build state-of-the-art products focusing on expanding the Wise offering in South Asia. 
  • Choose your path to impact – we believe people are most empowered when they can act autonomously. So rather than telling you what to do, you’ll work with your team to create a vision of your own. Of course, you can always gather feedback from smart, curious people across Wise but you’ll have the freedom to make your own calls
  • You will get to work alongside some of the strongest PMs in the industry and grow into a stronger product person

A bit about you:

  • You have previously worked in product management or similar roles
  • You have fresh ideas – You don’t accept the status quo, but are interested in solving problems in novel ways. You are able to communicate the impact of those ideas and formulate plans to implement them
  • You have worked with external partners and you are comfortable to review APIs, technical specifications and work with engineers on building solutions on top of external APIs  
  • You can connect your project delivery to wider goals and objectives and can effectively measure the impact through appropriate OKRs and or KPIs.
  • You’ve gotten a measured and significant impact with a previous project. You think beyond going live and have managed to successfully scale products/features.
  • Communicating clearly and logically – Your communication style is laser clear, succinct, and professional
  • You’re data-driven – You create dashboards for monitoring progress, and your team/s are actively measuring and optimising the impact of projects.. You’ll need to show us you’re dedicated to utilize or to master any type of data analytics tools (eg. SQL or Python or Business Analytics tools) quickly, to be able to self-serve your own analyses
  • You are curious and actively reflect – None of us have a perfect skillset, but you’re continuously conscious of what you’d like to learn next and curious enough to follow through

**Some extra skills that would be great (but not essential): **

  • Prior experience in banking, payments, finance, or a related field

We’re people without borders — without judgement or prejudice, too. We want to work with the best people, no matter their background. So if you’re passionate about learning new things and keen to join our mission, you’ll fit right in.

Also, qualifications aren’t that important to us. If you’ve got great experience, and you’re great at articulating your thinking, we’d like to hear from you.

And because we believe that diverse teams build better products, we’d especially love to hear from you if you’re from an under-represented demographic.
