To play fair, trust people, and reward them for doing the right thing. We are obsessed with our product.

The Opportunity

We’re looking for a Senior Product Manager to lead our merchant risk and finance technology team.

Afterpay partners with tens of thousands of merchants around the world. Our successful partnerships rely on our ability to settle funds to merchants: we want these to be fast, flexible, and aware of all money movements between parties.

The Senior Product Manager is responsible for defining the tools and capabilities we need to understand and move money across our platform. This means understanding and providing holistic visibility into money movement across all channels as we develop new services, providing automated tools and capabilities to manage money and risk flexibly, and supporting Afterpay’s growth around the world. The Senior Product Manager will partner with our risk, finance, design, analytics, and engineering teams to define end-to-end solutions to help merchants and Afterpay grow their business.

The Senior Product Manager will be experienced in eCommerce, payments, and platform solutions to manage risk and reconcile money movements. They will work with our business to define success metrics and go-to-market strategies to create value for our customers, merchant partners, and Afterpay globally.

We are much more than our job descriptions - we are our energy, our ideas, our everyday drive. Here’s where you will begin…

  • Work with our merchant risk, finance, and other product teams to define our risk needs and understand technical requirements. The goal is to build tools that let us understand the state of money movement across our networks and allow our risk and finance teams to make adjustments based on informed decisions.
  • Define success measures and prioritise key initiatives to drive growth across all platforms and geographies
  • Drive process improvement as well as product development to improve the end-to-end experience for our merchant partners
  • Build strong relationships with our cross-functional teams, such as Risk, Finance, Merchant Administration, and Ops teams.
  • Negotiate buy-in with stakeholders on product scope and priorities
  • Collaborate with engineering teams to deliver value quickly and efficiently
  • Plan go-to-market strategies for releasing tools and capabilities
  • Work with data and partner teams to ensure that we have proper end-to-end instrumentation to measure and improve experiences
  • Write great user stories, epics, and acceptance criteria to guide development teams
