Product Manager - API Platform

At BNY Mellon, we are at the forefront of digitally transforming the financial services industry. The API Platform supports hundreds of internal and external APIs, with dozens of strategic financial services clients depending on our stability and success. We support the API lifecycle, from publishing to consumption to support. The API Platform team is distributed across Jersey City, Chennai and Pune. We are expected to build and operate a 24/7 platform.

You will represent the client technical teams when working with BNY Mellon product, engineering, and business teams. You will also be involved in conversations with client product managers, business leaders, and others interested in learning about our APIs.

As the Product Manager, you will create educational materials, guidelines, and sample code to improve the developer experience. As client developers begin to use our APIs, you will be their first point of contact while getting access, trying new APIs, and addressing issues that arise with our APIs.
