Senior Product Manager
Trade Ledger exists to create a world where every business gets the capital it needs to thrive. Through the use of smart technology and new digital datasets we have created a credit orchestration platform so lenders can embed, launch and scale next-gen working capital products - quickly to a much wider audience.
We specialise in making complex working capital products — Invoice Finance, Asset-Based-Lending, and Receivables Finance — simple, intuitive, and sustainable. From origination to in-life management, our ‘out-of-the-box’ designs help lenders launch new digital products in as little as 90-days.
We are looking for an experienced Product Manager to take ownership of the vision and execution of the Trade Ledger platform.
As we’re a fast-growing team, executing complex enterprise transactions with global banks, we need someone that thinks two steps ahead of where we currently are and ensures we are truly prepared to scale into a global technology company. Curiosity will also be key to this role - we're looking for someone who enjoys investigating technical topics and collaborating with people from different backgrounds and with diverse perspectives. It’s who you are as a person that matters to us most.
