  • An analytical approach, you know what to look for and which metrics to focus on

  • You have an understanding of how systems are built, and you’re able to write your own SQL to help your team prioritise and ship new features

  • Experience in shipping products in highly regulated industries such as Financial Services, Crypto, Payment Treasury, Lending, Investments, etc. comply with current regulation and leveraging regulatory changes in the space

  • Engineering/Computer Science background or understanding of APIs is desirable but not necessary
