The Role: Lead Product Manager, Exchange and Financial Products

In this role, you'll work with leadership and project execution teams on listed derivatives products and other trading products at Gemini, helping to define the scope and objectives of projects, and working directly with engineering teams to deliver production systems. The ideal candidate is an expert cross-functional collaborator, with the ability to balance and communicate priorities across multiple internal teams. The ideal candidate can draw on domain expertise but also operate with a beginner's mind on projects to deliver compelling and at times novel derivatives and other trading products in the crypto space.

Responsibilities:

  • Work closely with engineers and internal stakeholders and use data-driven approaches to identify potential areas of improvement within the business.
  • Collaborate closely with stakeholder groups to understand business needs and set and manage priorities.
  • Engage in work with regulators and other external partners related to regulated products.
  • Regularly engage in performance analysis, specifically to analyze the successful completion of short and long-term goals.

Minimum Qualifications: 

  • 5+ years of experience in product management, or equivalent experience in other roles on project teams. Note that candidates with 10+ years of experience will also be considered for this role.
  • Proven track record of delivering production software products in an agile development environment.
  • Excellent organizational skills, attention to detail, and proven ability to manage complex projects.
  • Strong written and verbal communication skills, proven experience driving product and business decisions.
  • Team-oriented and demonstrated willingness to roll up sleeves and get into the weeds of a project.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Experience with derivatives in an exchange, brokerage, or other professional trading context.
  • Demonstrated experience and knowledge from working in the CFTC and/or SEC regulated space.
  • Understanding of the cryptocurrency exchange trading ecosystem and its evolution over the past 5 years is a plus.
  • Familiarity with cryptocurrency protocol technology is a plus.
  • Experience with financial exchange operations is a plus.
  • Experience with automated risk management systems and clearing systems is a plus.

An Insider's view of Gemini

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Before I started, I was told that taking a job at Gemini was a great idea because of how excited everyone was to be there. After working here for more than two years, I still believe that to be true. The office is constantly buzzing with incredibly smart people who are working to build Gemini into the long-lasting business we know it can be.

Director of Treasury Operations

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

A risk team is typically seen as a group that says "no”; at Gemini, establishing relationships and collaborating are key to understanding risks, which better enables us to say "yes" (or "yes, but..."). Communicating clearly and regularly, keeping things simple, and being flexible in a complex space reduces the risk of a message being lost.

Yusuf

Head of Risk

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

When we start a project, I challenge my team to look outside of the finance space, to take inspiration from other creative spaces such as art, industrial design, fashion, automotive, etc., and try to translate that into a solution for our industry and users. It's important to set the tone that solutions to problems can come from anyone or anywhere.
