Do you have a passion for using APIs to solve problems at the convergence of technology and business? We have this crazy, thrill-seeking goal to revolutionize banking through an open architecture built natively for the next-generation of serverless, cloud-based technologies; providing financial customers infinite scalability, availability, and transparency. To meet this goal we're seeking an API Product Manager to help us build, grow and maintain APIs to meet business needs within and beyond the banking industry in new and innovate ways.


As if waking up every morning to the sand and surf of Carolina beaches and the Cape Fear Riverfront against an azure sky wasn’t awe-inspiring enough, we offer an inspired work place, too. We have a beautiful, newly built-out office in Downtown Wilmington, right in the middle of some of the best dining on the East Coast, and only a three-minute walk to Wilmington’s famous Riverfront. We offer a very generous compensation and benefits package, free gym access, and the opportunity to work with some of the smartest, energetic people you’ll find anywhere. While you may have never heard of us, rest assured – over five hundred financial institutions and millions of customers rely on us to power some of the most innovative and important pieces in the financial industry. We’re backed by some of the biggest and most well-respected names in finance, we’re profitable, and we’re growing – fast.

You'll be responsible for creating API-centric based on Apiture service offerings. The API Product Manager ensures API products are designed and built to high standards, are easy for developers to implement, and are solving real problems in the marketplace. The API Product Manager must possess a combination of technical and product knowledge in order to cater to their users: application developers.

  • Work with Product team to translate business and functional requirements into API User Stories
  • Work with Development team to translate user stories into API specifications
  • Apply product management, industry, and market expertise to brainstorm and create additional use-cases for APIs
  • Make product roadmap recommendations and have overall ownership of the API as a product. Prioritize work and make strategic decisions on cutting or adding features during the development cycle
  • Work with marketing team to develop a marketing plan for Apiture APIs
  • Contribute to API testing phases when requirement decisions must be made
  • Own all API documentation including documents for developer support, security, sales, sales training, marketing as needed
  • Create monetization strategy for APIs


Your ride:

  • In the first 30 days, you’ll have worked hand in hand with our API architecture team and product team to fully understand where we are, where we're going, and earned an AWS Certified Cloud Practitioner credential.
  • In the first 90 days, you'll have developed an API road map and worked hand-in-hand with the development to see your vision coming to fruition.
  • In the first year, you will have helped to create a robust assemblage of APIs serving as "bank building blocks" being used in unique and innovate ways to fundamentally change financial services.
