VP of Product - Risk

Toronto, Canada
Full-Time
About Paytm Labs:
At Paytm Labs, we’re on a mission to provide useful technological solutions that enrich and empower millions of people in their daily lives. We apply big data, artificial intelligence, and machine learning to bring the next generation of financial products and services to the Indian, Japanese and Canadian markets.

As a company, we’re committed to offering the most transparent, secure, and personalized consumer experience to over 333 million consumers and over 21 million merchants. Since our journey began 6 years ago, we’ve launched the Paytm Canada app (our bill management app), and PayPay (a QR-based payment app in Japan), all while powering the Paytm India app.

Job Description:
Our offering to the customer is the best way to judge us, we believe. To make this happen, Product Managers on our team not only fret about our product strategy (what should be built and for whom) but also about every minor detail (why is the splash screen around for 0.25 seconds longer than necessary). They’re the catalysts of all that we stand for — which is to build trust and to deliver the best experience for our users. 

Our belief is that there are Product Managers, and then there are “Product Managers”. If you are a product manager in our team, you love technology, obsess about your product. Your friends think of you as having an addiction to your gadgets and secretly envy you for all the stuff you know about every new product before anyone else. 

You are also known for strong opinions on different products; you scorn the ones you dislike and can’t stop talking about those you love. At social gatherings, when you speak about how the world would be in the next few years, people listen. And never interrupt because they are in awe of your ability to imagine a new world. You can merge objectivity in analysis and also create an emotional connection to the user by speaking to them from your heart. 

Fortunately for us, there is no University of Product Management where standard-issue product managers are churned out every year. Because we don’t believe this is how the greatest products are ever built.
