Product Manager - Application

Exabel was founded in Oslo in 2016 based on the belief that the financial system will best serve society with fair, open and efficient markets. Exabel delivers an analytics platform for any investment professional who wants to benefit from alternative data and modern data science tools in their investment process. Ensuring that all market participants have the necessary tools to make informed investment decisions will ultimately lead to fairer and more efficient financial markets, to the best of society.

The Product Manager - Application shall have responsibility for the extent to which various end users of the Exabel platform products are able to find success and grow their use of the platform over time. The end users are finance professionals, working within buy-side investment teams, and in this role it is equally important to understand capital markets and buy-side workflows, as it is to understand how alternative data, analytics and a well-designed software user interface can augment and provide insights.

You will be working very closely with the rest of the product team and developers, but also interact with our quants, sales, customers and partners.

Location: London or Oslo

Core responsibilities:

  • Make sure our platform offers the most effective and intuitive end user experience for our customers
  • Understand the needs and workflows of financial buy-side users and how alternative data can help them. This knowledge must then be translated into functionality and workflows on our platforms
  • Gather and keep track of input from external and internal users and stakeholders
  • Create specifications for developers, including wireframes of user interfaces
  • Test and verify functionality from the developers
  • Make sure our end users utilize the full extent of our platform. You will use tools such as user analytics, interactive guided tours, tips & tricks etc to analyse, inform and activate the user base.
  • Some sales support can also be expected, such as demoing the platform in customer meetings

We’re looking for someone who has:

  • Understanding of what makes a good end user experience and how design, data visualisation, navigation and functionality plays together
  • Be able to build up a very solid understanding of how our end users work workflows
  • Good at communicating requirements in a clear way through specifications and sketches
  • Able to deal with multiple inputs at the same time, prioritise and deliver on the most important goals
  • Experience from capital markets is a must, either from a financial institution or delivering software/data/analytics to the financial industry
  • Previous experience from the software development process is a requirement; for example in a role as product manager/owner, developer or project manager
  • Experience specifically from alternative data or data analytics is a plus
