Fincura: Product Manager

About Us: 

Fincura is making the world of commercial lending smarter, faster and more human. 

As part of the Techstars 2018 class, we built disruptive technology to empower banks and other commercial lenders to instantly extract insights from financial statements and tax returns allowing them to assess loan risk with unprecedented speed, accuracy and consistency.

On top of this foundation, we’re building an intelligent automation engine that generates enterprise level analytics and enables lending institutions to leverage their data in decision making for every deal.

When commercial lenders are assured of risks, they’re more likely to make credit available, unlocking opportunity for small and middle market businesses worldwide. At FINCURA, we transform data into information and insights, helping commercial lenders succeed.

The Challenge:

Your mission as a Product Manager is to ensure we are solving problems for our customers every day and providing value beyond expectations. You will work hand in hand with customers as partners to understand the processes and challenges facing middle market lending, design experiments to reveal opportunities for innovation and disruption, and develop a deep understanding of our customers and the market overall. You will rely on data, feedback and your instincts to guide product strategy and prioritization and work hand in hand with UX & Engineering to build solutions for our customers. 

You will have a clear focus on distributed, self-service financial analysis and data visualization platform and will act as the voice of the end user as you prioritize a value-oriented backlog to balance the needs of a few user personas within our target market segment. Your goal is to create a powerful self-service financial analysis tool with a resilient, scalable, and performant platform.

A typical day might have you attending daily engineering standups, performing story mapping exercises, researching industry trends, and collaborating on prototypes with a customer, architect or developer.

  • Building, managing, and prioritizing the data ingestion and visualization backlog based upon business value and technical complexity

Your experience:
