Onyx Digital Assets - Technical Product Manager

Onyx Digital Assets is a new platform developed by Blockchain Launch. It is a multi-asset blockchain network and platform that enables the tokenization and exchange of value for different types of digital assets, from debt to equities to renewable energy to natively digital collectibles. Onyx Digital Assets, aka 'O.D.A', launched in December 2020 with its first application - Intraday Repo - which has seen hundreds of billions of dollars of tokenized assets move through the platform. We are currently building out the next applications to run on top of O.D.A and are scaling the platform accordingly. The candidate will be responsible for defining, owning, and driving the O.D.A product roadmap, and importantly, owning, enhancing and realizing the overall vision. Additionally, the candidate will collaborate with control functions and internal stakeholders to ensure tight governance and control of the ongoing development, as well as ensure appropriate client-engagement. Partnership with our technology organization is key, so we are seeking someone who not only understands the business aspects of tokenized assets, but also someone who is highly technical, adept at collaborating with developers and is passionate about building the underlying infrastructure instead of the business facing applications. The candidate will leverage their expertise and experience in rolling out digital assets products in order to create a market-leading platform.

* Experience operating in highly regulated industries (e.g., Banking, FinTech, Digital Assets and Blockchain)
* Experience building SDKs and has an understanding of how to enable developers to build blockchain-based applications
* Experience with providing APIs and enabling connectivity to other systems
* An understanding of key differentiators across existing Digital Asset/Tokenization platforms, and which features and functions are important to deliver a best-in-class solution

The candidate should exemplify the following skills:

* A self-starter but also team-oriented with a demonstrated willingness to get into the weeds of a project, and drive it from the ideation stage, to execution, and to successful commercialization
* Strong written and verbal communication skills, proven experience driving product and business decisions, and comfortability in presenting intricate topics to senior management
* Excellent organizational skills, attention to detail, and proven ability to manage complex projects among many stakeholders
* Genuine curiosity to learn new and innovative concepts and the willingness to teach and educate others
* Proactive effort in keeping up with the latest technological developments inside and outside of the blockchain ecosystem
