About the role

Delivering the very best new banking platform is the heart of the 10x proposition. For the majority of banking customers, the way banking services are designed and consumed has changed forever. Yet we believe there is so much more that can be delivered, and our platform capabilities are key to that new consumer experience.  Join us and you will help define a digital banking platform that is second to none and at the forefront of innovation in global banking and the wider FinTech sector.

This is a unique opportunity to drive the overall design direction of our platform product for the bank (client) internal development users.

We are looking for candidates with a background in digital transformation, financial services and platform/API product management with an outstanding track record of delivery. Product managers at 10x are our upcoming Product Owners and will experience the full end-to-end lifecycle from design to code to client experience.

We are delivering something truly unique in financial services, a platform that enables end to end customer product lifecycle management with embedded tools and capabilities to visualise, manage and monitor risks associated with the day-to-day operation and execution.

At the heart of enabling a leading platform business are our client facing development tools and principally our public APIs and SDKs. We want to build on an industry leading set of APIs that enable our clients to build and launch their banking services seamlessly.
