Director of Product - YTS

Amsterdam, Noord-Holland

In one sentence: you’ll drive the entire product lifecycle forward, from vision-setting to launch.

Of course, you won’t be doing this all by yourself, because as part of the MT, you’ll have a shared responsibility to drive YTS forward. With the support of our CBO of YTS, you’ll make sure that the product vision and strategy are brought to execution.

In order to achieve, and drive company-wide impact, we believe an understanding of all business aspects is key. Therefore, in this position, while you will be hierarchically responsible for Product, you will also closely cooperate with Marketing and Sales.


Our mission

We’re on a mission to give everyone the power to be smart with their money. We encourage and inspire people to think differently about money, to take control, and adapt to life’s twists and turns. In other words, Yolt does the hard work, so our users can Unthink money. We live and breathe our core values: being frontrunners switched on and trusted.


Our YTS Platform

Yolt Technology Services (YTS) is the leading open banking provider in Europe, building, managing, and maintaining AIS and PIS connections for top financial institutions and ambitious tech businesses. In January 2018, we became the first-ever Third-Party Provider to successfully make an open banking API call. Just over two years later, we have now made more than 1 billion API calls, accounting for 50% of all traffic.

We’re after an entrepreneurial, innovation-driven, forward-looking individual who’s excited to join us on the YTS journey, and help us shape the next phase.

In unifying all those domains you cannot move forward without data (obviously), so leveraging data and turning it to support your strategy, is your power.

Product vision, strategy, product roadmap, gathering and analyzing data, driving change, prioritizing needs, managing stakeholders, providing long-term value, and ultimately growth means you’ll certainly be kept busy!

  • Approve and set the product roadmap and goals
  • Use data and a POC driven approach to validate concepts
  • Always strive for quality and efficiency in delivery
  • Define market fit based on client feedback and facilitate the continuous increase in velocity for product areas whilst seeking new market opportunities
  • Manage priorities and balance between new change, incidents, and IT LCM
