  • Ability to analyze central bank and/or market infrastructure requirements and convert them into business opportunities or actionable outcomes.
  • Work closely with internal product strategy and product to share market insights and develop internal CBDC product roadmap.
  • Must be able to communicate clearly, written and verbal. Executive-level presentation skills are a must.
  • Must have exceptional attention to detail.
  • Bias for action is a must.
  • Excited to challenge, be challenged, and work as a team to run with the best idea.
