Product Strategy

What we do at Codat

Our mission is to make life easier for small and medium sized businesses, the backbone of our global economy. 

We do that by working with fintech companies and financial institutions to help them connect into the systems their small business customers use. With this connectivity, our clients are building next generation products to take the friction out of running a small business, from business management software to alternative lending and corporate cards.

Codat is a Series C-funded company, backed by some of the leading investors and most successful tech companies in the world, including J.P. Morgan, Shopify, Plaid, PayPal Ventures, Amex Ventures, Index Ventures and Tiger Global. We have offices in London, New York, Sydney.

We live by our values of being united as a single team, building a product that is useful to our clients and their customers alike, and bringing a focus and urgency to our work that makes us unstoppable.

What you will be doing

Codat’s mission is to make life easier for small businesses by enabling their systems and services to work together seamlessly. To do this we have built six products (and counting!) that enable developers to build integrated applications powered by Codat. In this role you will be working with the Global Head of Product Strategy to ensure the development of these separate products are aligned towards our mission and complement one another. Where other product development groups will be deep in the details and thinking ahead in terms of months and quarters, you will take a higher-level and longer term perspective utilizing analysis of global industry trends and in-depth customer research to help steer our multiple product roadmaps.

The key responsibilities of this role include

  • In-depth analysis and market research to ascertain the unserved needs and market opportunities that Codat should be pursuing
  • Work with go to market teams on how best to position Codat
  • Work with product development teams to ensure we are building functionality aligned to overall product strategy
  • Carry out in-depth customer research to identify opportunities for long term relationships with our most strategic clients as well as identify new customer segments
  • Lead projects and analyze product trends related to Codat’s overall product strategy to ultimately drive recommendations to the executive team and product development teams

Our values

No matter what we’re doing – whether we’re speaking to customers, partners or to each other – we live by our values.

We believe in delivering useful technology that solves real problems for real businesses.  We have a real want to do the stuff that isn't always “cool” but makes a difference.

We believe that the people in the best teams push and enable each other to excel.  We’re united when we have each other’s backs – when something goes wrong, we don’t blame, we work together to fix it.  We embrace differences of opinion to end up with better outcomes.  We don’t let our egos win.

We believe that an unstoppable drive towards a single, clearly stated goal is the best way to build great things.  We are biased towards action – we make informed decisions and then we act.  There is no such thing as an impossible problem, just a great challenge to sink our teeth into.

What excites us

  • Experience working in product teams building and releasing products in small business financial services or related industries
  • Strong, data-driven decision making and problem solving skills
  • A combination of deep technical knowledge and customer-focused mindset
  • An ability to work in complex and ambiguous environments, to drive rigorous, data-led recommendations to executive management, functional and regional management
