As a PM, you will be a leading member of a multi-disciplinary team of product development, UX design, and data professionals who collaborate closely to build products that are transforming the private capital markets.

  • You take pride in your work. You are your toughest critic and set a bar of excellence for your colleagues.
  • You are a strong communicator. You understand that analysis must be presented in meaningful ways and engage in spirited discussions about the findings. You have the ability to explain technical concepts to non-technical audiences.
