Wealthsimple is looking for an experienced, customer-focused Product Manager to join our Platform Product team to help us build a world class foundation to power our growing ecosystem of financial products.

Wealthsimple is on a mission to help everyone achieve financial freedom, no matter who they are or how much they have. Using smart technology, Wealthsimple takes financial services that are often confusing, opaque and expensive and makes them simple, transparent, and low-cost. We're the company behind some of Canada's leading digital financial products, and are growing faster than ever.

Our team is reimagining what it means to manage your money. Smart, high-performing team members will challenge you to learn and grow every day. We value great work and great ideas — not ego. We're looking for talented people who love a fast-paced environment, and want to ship often and make an impact with groundbreaking ideas.

We’re a remote-first team and output is more important than face time, so where you choose to work is up to you — as long as you have internet access, you can work from anywhere in Canada. Be a part of our Canadian success story and help shape the financial future of millions — join us! Read our Culture Manual and learn more about how we work.

At Wealthsimple, we are building products for a diverse world and we need a diverse team to do that successfully. We strongly encourage applications from everyone regardless of race, religion, colour, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, or disability status. Wealthsimple provides an accessible candidate experience. If you need any accommodations or adjustments throughout the interview process and beyond, please let us know.

More about the Platform Teams

As Wealthsimple continues to scale, our ability to enable customers to transfer assets seamlessly, understand financial data, and protect against fraud is critical. The platform organization is responsible for building the services that power all of the Wealthsimple products. These core services are shared across the platform with the goal improving the speed at which we scale and launch new products and continue to improve our current offerings. As part of the platform product team, you will define and evolve our end-to-end growth product vision, strategy and execution by leading a core team of engineers and designers to build amazing products for our customers. This will require partnership and collaboration across various internal teams (especially finance, operations and risk), a deep understanding of our customers, and the ability to deliver financial products and streamline complex business flows via a fantastic user experience. 

In this role, you will:

  • Help define the product vision and strategy, and define and own the roadmap for one of the different Platform Teams that power our product ecosystem.

  • Support a cross-functional team of engineers, designers, and data scientists.

  • Lead the planning, development, and launch of large scale platform initiatives; for example:

  • a) A fraud detection, management and mitigation framework

  • b) Real time financial data framework

  • c) Wealthsimple’s data platform, including machine learning foundation, data reconciliation, analytics tool, etc.

  • d) Design, build and launch data pipelines at scale to move data across Wealthsimple platform

  • e) Build analytical tools that provide insight into business metrics across Wealthsimple

  • Build a deep understanding of our various platform systems, processes, and partners — and how they all fit together. Be opinionated about how we take these further to make them best-in-class.

  • Establish and own a variety of metrics related to various aspects of the platform (e.g., payment funnel drop-off, deposit speeds, fraud/loss rates, etc., ledger update speed, financial metrics/errors).

  • Partner with other engineering teams and departments across the company (e.g. Operations, Legal and Compliance, and more) to build compliant, efficient, and industry-leading money-movement experiences.

  • Evaluate third-party vendors and develop business cases for how we can continue to flawlessly execute different initiatives, with an emphasis on deciding between build vs. buy decisions

  • Work closely with product design to create simple, smart, and inspiring user-experiences that reflect the needs of our customers - functional, educational, emotional and otherwise.

  • Help elevate the Product Management practice at Wealthsimple and create an inclusive and supportive team culture.

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • A multi-year track record of building and shipping products that customers love. You’ve owned a complete product/platform or large parts of an offering and are comfortable leading large, complex, cross-functional projects.

  • A shipping mentality. We don't believe in spending forever analyzing and debating. The best way to validate something is to ship it — so let's ship it, learn, and iterate.

  • Enough technical know-how to talk with engineers about architecture and technical considerations that impact a platform, and a desire to learn what you don’t know to help drive decision making.

  • A passion for financial inclusion and building products that increase access to financial freedom for everyone.

  • Bonus: You’ve helped set up and scale data platforms, and are passionate about the topic.

And someone who is:

  • A systems thinker that can distill many use-cases into a simple, elegant, generic logical solution design.

  • A strong technical partner who is comfortable working with engineering to translate a logical system design into a technical architecture design.

  • Able to navigate uncertainty and ambiguity and adept at synthesizing actionable problems, insights, and requirements from raw, unstructured qualitative and quantitative data.

  • A thoughtful, critical thinker who follows a systematic and rigorous approach to problem solving.

  • Scrappy and comfortable flexing into different roles to support your team. For example:

  • a) Business model and business case development

  • b) Workflow and operational process development

  • c) Negotiation with external vendors, regulatory bodies, and more.

  • d) Project management

  • An excellent communicator that can convey complex ideas succinctly and clearly.

  • A naturally collaborative and empathetic leader; comfortable working with a diverse group of stakeholders, making making sure every voice is heard.

  • Passionate about creating simple and elegant user-experiences. You can’t help but critique the UX of the apps you use.
