Vice President, Product Operations
What We’re Looking For
We are looking for experienced fund accountants in the private equity industry that are interested in translating that experience into the development of critical software for the private fund industry. You should have the ability to work effectively with a small and focused team building and implementing complex fund software.
What You’ll Do
You will be a part of the foundation of Maybern’s Product Operations team, which is designing and building our product in conjunction with the Engineering team. Consequently, you will be one of the chief architects of the product, requiring the ability to translate private equity experience into business logic that we will encode in software. You will also be key in building relationships with prospective clients and understanding their unique business requirements. You will work hand-in-hand with the Chief Business Officer, Head of Product Operations, Head of Sales, and Head of Product to:
Plan: Analyze private equity needs and key requirements of clients and prospective clients to help prioritize the product roadmap.
Design: Work with engineers and early customers in developing a flexible software solution. This will involve implementation of the most complicated fund and investment structures to test functionality and discover product fixes and enhancements.
Build: You will network within the private equity community and market to new potential customers, plan onboarding and roll-out process for new fund managers, and evaluate product enhancements.
Who You Are
Collaborative. You love to work in a dynamic and collaborative environment managing both internal and external stakeholders, excel at distilling and incorporating feedback, and are a clear and consistent communicator.
Product Vision. You have a deep understanding and experience with the inner workings of fund and investment structures and can translate a variety of structures and calculations in a concise manner. You can apply your knowledge to identify user needs and shape the vision for the user experience.
Attention to Detail. There is no room for error when building software to manage such critical calculations for investment managers.
Leader. You're eager to shape our product foundation and will level up team practices and processes. You can take broad guidance and determine the best path forward. You thrive in a fast-paced environment and are comfortable wearing multiple hats.
Strategic. You see both the forest and the trees: think big picture, while also living in the weeds of a problem. In looking at a big picture problem, you pay meticulous attention to each detail while keeping high level implications in mind. You can plan for the long term while navigating short-term hurdles.
Curious: You enjoy learning about different technical concepts and their unique approach to managing their fund finance operations.
