Strategic Product Owner - ESG / Sustainable Investment

London £80-100,000 + Bonus + Benefits

Senior Product Owner,Senior Product Manager, Agile Lead, Strategic Product Owner - ESG / Sustainable Investment, Fixed Income, Bonds, Analytics, Yield curves, SAFe, Kanban, SCRUM, scrum master, Trading platform, Investment banking, Fund Management, Finance, Strategy.

Successful and expanding medium sized Financial Institution has created a new Strategic Product Owner role to take them to their next stage of Agile maturity within their expanding ESG/SI area of the business. Scrum has been successfully rolled out and they are looking for where SAFe would be appropriate, so need an experienced Agile professional with a good appreciation of ESG / Sustainable Investment or potentially Fixed income products as this is a key growth area for them.. As the Strategic Product Owner you will know the pros and cons of the different areas of Agile (SAFe, Scrum, Kanban) to develop and approach in collaboration with senior IT and business stakeholders.

The role will be a combination of working with business and IT to develop the agile approach for the organisation, coaching from C-Level down to Scrum teams, developing meaningful metrics and organisational task (PI Planning, ART sync meetings etc) and making sure that Delivery is the focal point through pragmatic use of Agile techniques.

The successful candidate will be strong but diplomatic leader and collaborator with a background in ESG/SI gained in Banking or Fund Management, who is comfortable at both senior, strategic level as well as working with global development teams. Agile experience and qualifications in general and SAFe in particular are useful (as it is fairly new to the firm, not that it is seen as a solution for all problems), with a passion for its practical use without getting too evangelical.

There is great scope for expanding this role to encompass other streams and a broader Agile leadership role across the organisation for an individual who shows both the ability and desire for such.
