About OpenGamma

OpenGamma is the fintech startup dedicated to reducing the costs of trading. With our deep quantitative expertise, we are building a cutting-edge, cloud-based product to give derivatives users the ability to uncover hidden opportunities that enhance their returns.

The company was founded in 2009 and has been on the cutting edge of market structure change since its inception while making several reputable listings in 2017 - The European Fintech50, The Global Fintech 250, and listed by the Financial News as the No.1 Fintech firm to keep your eye on.

Over the past decade, we have built (and are continuing to grow) a global client base of the world’s leading financial institutions and companies across banks, clearing houses and buy-side firms (hedge funds, asset managers, commodities traders and pension funds).

About the role

As a product analyst, you will support the development and management of the product’s roadmap. Working within a team of product managers, you will work across many aspects of the product to ensure that we are driving our product forwards and also delivering valuable functionality to our clients.

Your day-to-day tasks will include:

  • Ensuring that developers have everything they need to build the next product feature in a timely manner through specifications, designs, worked-examples of risk calculations/analytics etc.
  • Supporting product managers with client engagement to communicate new releases and to extract product feedback
  • Keeping our client-facing teams up to date with product developments as they engage with clients and new prospects.

We are working in a high-growth environment so making sure we are maximising our internal development capacity is critical to our success. Our clients trust us because we make an effort to understand their problems and we always deliver what we commit to. This is an important part of how we operate and something that you will be at the heart of enforcing as a product manager.

Why you should apply

  • At OpenGamma, you will be at the heart of a rapidly growing company with a constantly evolving product.
  • You’ll solve complex and ever-changing problems whilst building up advanced knowledge of derivatives markets and margin models.
  • You’ll be welcomed into a team who will support your development and throw new opportunities at you at every stage.
  • You’ll interact with and learn from people across all kinds of functions, from strategic account managers to sales to software development.
  • The work you do will have a direct impact on our clients, and you’ll be providing this value from day one.

What we are looking for

  • You graduated from a top university with a quantitative or analytical degree (e.g. Economics, Maths, Finance etc.)
  • You likely have 1-3 years experience with finance/derivatives gained from either working at a financial institution or another fintech company
  • While product experience is not essential, you would have developed strong communication, prioritization and client-facing skills through previous experience.
  • You can effectively communicate with both software developers and external clients, be it face to face or written correspondence, and build strong relationships with them.
  • You are passionate about technology and not afraid to use software to solve complex problems.
  • You are a systematic problem-solver, able to methodically work through possibilities to find a solution.
  • Familiarity with JIRA and agile processes is a plus, although not essential.
  • You have a keen eye for both the finer details and the bigger picture.
  • You know when to approach others for help and are skilled at extracting the right information from the right people.
