The world is built on trusted exchanges of value, with blockchain technology holding the power to transform how businesses connect, collaborate and transact. Since 2014, R3 has been on a mission to unlock that power. We combine trusted technology, connected networks and market expertise to bring the value of blockchain technology to life for our industry-leading customers.
Our platform, Corda, is being used today across the globe by central banks to mint new forms of digital currency, by exchanges to issue and manage digital financial assets as tokens, and by payments providers who use our technology to streamline how money moves across the world. We’re now working to connect all of these networks together into a network of networks for financial services. And we’re just getting started.
As we continue our rapid growth, we believe that two things are vital to continuing our success: our people and our culture. So far, our team consists of nearly 400 of the brightest minds in blockchain and finance, spanning across 8 countries in 5 continents, all working toward our mission. And we’re looking for more. We want to find our next superstar that loves building exceptional products, loves creating elegance from chaos and loves to pave the way into uncharted territory.
About the role
Within R3, there aren’t many teams more important than Product. It’s where all of our market-leading software is conceived and is the glue that connects all of our business together. This team’s scope is wide, bringing together expertise from engineering, strategy, sales, marketing and professional services to create lasting value for our customers and generate new revenue streams for R3.
Senior Product Managers at R3 make the magic happen. You’ll have sole responsibility for the success of your product. You decide the strategy, the features, the pricing and the go to market approach. You’ll work side by side with your engineering team to design the architecture, align technical best practices and influence senior stakeholders from across the business to rally behind your vision.
It’s fast paced. Definitely. But if you can manage all that, and inspire others to join you on the journey, then you’re probably the rocket ship captain we’re looking for. 🧑‍🚀 🚀

What you’ll be doing:

  • Work within the Corda Interoperability product squad to help our technical customers to build interoperable Corda application networks and private-public blockchain bridges, connecting traditional finance with decentralised finance.
  • Define and lead your product vision and strategy, investigating market demand, customer needs and pains, barriers to adoption, business opportunities and competitive advantage.
  • Work in partnership with your Engineering team to translate business requirements into detailed technical specifications, co-create the component architecture, define product feature priorities and coordinate releases.
  • Own the end to success of your team’s products, using your market knowledge to keep them differentiated, iterating on customer feedback, defining attractive pricing models and championing your products internally with R3ers and externally across the market.

What you’ll need:

  • Experience working in product role at a high-growth tech company or financial assets-related business, such as investment banking, asset custody, etc.
  • Experience in a hands-on technical role, such as software developer or solutions engineer
  • Strong knowledge of digital financial assets products and market.
  • Business-minded and analytical. You deeply understand why your products work for your customers and how to measure long-term impact.
  • Technically competent, able to roll your sleeves up with your engineering team and debate the nitty gritty of how your products are being built.
  • Excellent interpersonal, communication and presentation skills, with the ability to communicate complex technical issues simply and convincingly to a wide range of audiences.
  • Confidence to take ownership and make clear, consistent decisions in the face of complexity and uncertainty, with the resolve to stick to them and bring everyone else on board.
  • Flexibility to recognise that sometimes decisions need to change, to reflect market realities, broader strategic issues etc.
  • Ability to think big and small – you should be comfortable defining a completely new experience or optimising an existing product.
  • Experience and proven success in delivering software products to market in an agile software development environment.
  • BSc in computer science or engineering or equivalent practical experience.

Nice to have:

  • Experience of blockchain / distributed ledger technology / multi-party systems.

 

At R3, we encourage a diverse and inclusive workforce. If you don’t meet all of the above criteria, but you think you’d be a great addition to R3, send us your CV. We’re always interested in meeting collaborative people who are excited to work with us.
