Kaiko operates a data infrastructure which is growing to a critical service of our customers. As per any critical service and under its ongoing SOC 2 Audit process, Kaiko has to meet operational standards in the financial environment such as 99.5% uptime, very strict data quality and requirement rules, and 100% auditable processes for its regulated services.
The platform department is responsible for designing the services that will support the delivery of the products to our customers. The purpose is to transform requirements for new product increments designed by the portfolio team into implementable iterations. The platform department is made of Product Owners and a Service Delivery manager and collaborates with the Engineering team to supervise the full product lifecycle.
Kaiko’s platform department is scaling as the company scales, and a dedicated Product Owner will take on specific pipelines and services under their area of ownership. One of these areas is everything related to pricing, valuation and quantitative information services:
Kaiko builds quantitative products relying on in-house designed and white labeled mathematical models in collaboration with the leading researchers in mathematical finance worldwide. You’ll work closely with Kaiko’s Quant Data PM, to take input scripted models and then design the services that will deliver these products in a production compliant environment. This is done by taking into account not only the core product (the quant model implementation) but also the service usability (API model, payload etc.) in our data distribution platform.
Kaiko is engineering rates and basket indices data products to be designed via a dedicated rates & indices in house platform. From source selection, to backtesting to push to publication and index/rate launch, the platform serves as internal vehicles for the Indices product team to be fully independent with minimal footprint on tech to launch new information services products seamlessly. As PO, you will own that platform and its functionality as a whole, and work closely with Index PM.
Centralized Exchange Ranking: Work jointly with the Kaiko Indices business unit towards an IP owned Exchange qualification.
Analyst and Indices: Take ownership of the product life cycle for all products that concern Analytics and Indices. Some examples are the aforementioned Exchange ranking, statistical models such as Implied Volatility, Value-at-Risk and the creation and backtesting of Indices.
Product Life Cycle Management: as a Product Owner, you will be responsible for making sure priorities are set correctly and are communicated across the team, specifications are clear and in alignment between the Product Managers and Developers and deadlines are being met.
