You are a smart, self-managed, battle-tested technologist who knows how to take an idea and turn it into something real in an interactive consumer-facing environment. You are frustrated with financial products and know you can build a better customer experience.
You possess the supernatural ability to be both technical and creative, while acting as a guiding light for what customers want/need (even if they don’t know it yet). As the voice of the customer you can deliver a complex product that appears simple and intuitive to a non-technical audience.
You have to be a strong communicator and love working with geeks. You’ll work with engineers to define product release requirements, and with marketing to define go-to-market strategies. That means you need to speak two languages in addition to your own (actually three languages when you count the customers’).
